Abstract

Design for Human Variability (DfHV) is a DfX activity that supports the design of artifacts, tasks, and environments that are robust to the variabilty in their users. This requires an understanding of the body size and shape of the target user population. Unfortunately, data and training to properly support these activities are not adequate. A website (www.dfhv.org) was created several years ago to address this need and to support those in academia and industry. It takes advantage of opportunities, such as interactivity, not available in traditional tables and texts. This paper formally introduces the site to the community, summarizes usage, and makes recommendations for future work.
