Jane Sleeth‘s insight:

We can say this with experience with Chrysler who tended to use ergonomic sciences after the design occurred. The best place to see where industrial design thrives is in Europe where designers and engineers actively engage ergonomic experts at all phases of the design process. ….and companies in NA wonder why firms such as OPC thrive?
