Ergonomics is particularly important within environments. Military or scientific personnel involved in space exploration or critical analysis in hostile environments must be as efficient as possible when their own safety and that of others depends on what they do - and this can be carried into virtually every other situation that you can imagine. Whether it be in the size of the product and dexterity possible relating to the use of a diver’s glove whilst working beneath the oceans or of a computer operator staring at a screen - ergonomics - and the background information obtained from the anthropometric data available - all feature quite distinctly.

Ergonomics extends to defining the light levels that should be expected in places like offices and factories. This information can therefore be useful as a guide to designers producing ideas for products such as small desk lamps. If the recommended value of200-500 lux is to be achieved then the specifications for the different lamps / bulbs to be included in the design have to be researched and with such detailed features as this being included in the list a product has to match - the SPECIFICATION becomes very precise indeed. This detailed specification is called the PRODUCT DESIGN SPECIFICATION - the PDS for short - and defines everything the product has to do to meet the original design needs.
