This paper discusses methods and techniques to be used for an ergonomic evaluation of products, product interfaces and systems. In this context evaluation is seen as a part of the design process that interacts with all design stages. It plays an integral role in it and is concerned with assuring a high degree of likelihood of the user’s acceptance. Traditional and new evaluation methods such as task analysis, checklists, TA (talk/think aloud) protocols, CAD simulation are addressed.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
