Abstract: The complexity in considering human anthropometric diversity in multivariate problems commonly leads to a situation where more people are excluded by the design than was the objective. Ergonomists and product designers would benefit from tools and methods that make it less demanding to assess and achieve the expected accommodation level of the product in multivariate design problems. One approach is to employ computer manikin families in human simulation tools. This paper discusses how different configurations of two manikin families affect the way they represent targeted users.
