Hello, I’m Maxim Smulders, a lecturer and researcher on Technical Ergonomics at the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering of the Delft University of Technology. My research focusses on sleeping in transit, seating and comfort. You can find my publications on a.o. Google Scholar and ResearchGate. Besides research I am course coordinator of Technology for Concept Design, a part of the Advanced Concept Design, and I’m involved in Advanced Embodiment Design, teaching students on how to use 3D scanning anthropometrics in product design.
DINED is a very useful tool for both industry and education. I have used DINED in many occasions myself when I was working in the aviation industry on both galleys and seats. Most of our students are familiar with DINED and rely on it at in their education and often use it in their professional career after.
