Contents: This publication is a professional quality DVD video & 3D interactive eBook Quatro Set, covering use-cases, and some of the most important analytical, software, as well as practical aspects of industrial design with ergonomics within a Sustainable Green Quality & PLM framework. Having understood the material presented, the collaborative design team will have a clear concept, sound methods, and some tools for industrial design with ergonomics. In the DVD Quatro Boxset 1: Part 0 is a simulated 3D eBook on DVD, an interactive browser readable multimedia electronic book, containing several important text, diagrams, images, calculations, interactive 3D & 360 degree panorama objects, video clips, spreadsheets, etc. the design team needs to calculate with using their own data. Parts 1 to 3 are DVD videos taped in the USA, Europe, Hong Kong, China and Japan, illustrating the importance of industrial design with ergonomics with several examples. Key subjects introduced include the following: What is industrial design? What is ergonomics, or in other words human factors engineering? What is aesthetics and how does it fit into the subject area? What is usability, and why is this important for industrial design and ergonomics? Why is fashion, and also the cultural setting within which the particular fashion style is implemented and practiced important in industrial design with ergonomics? How does art fit into all this?, and others.
