The aim of the study reported in this paper was development of the metrics for ergonomic assessment that could be utilized by engineers in conceptualization and embodiment design. As an initial step towards enabling practitioners in engineering design to cover these issues without need of acquiring specific knowledge and measurement equipment, the list of feature groups for ergonomic assessment in early stages of the product development has been proposed and evaluation method has been presented. The medical examination table was used as a case study for illustrating proposed approach.
