This project aims to foster the availability of complex anthropometric datasets for a subsequent use in human centered product- and work system design. To ensure a dataset which is up to date, a method for the regularly collection of human measures with 3D-bodyscans will be developed. After merging the additional collected 3D-bodyscan-data with the existing dataset, the data will be synthesized with multivariate statistics, which were developed in a previous project (F2396). The outcome is a virtual synthesis of the source dataset, which is statistically almost equivalent and can be used without privacy concerns. A prerequisite for a widespread use of complex anthropometric data is an appropriate preprocessing, data preparation and presentation for the targeted audience, which is a main topic of this research project.
