What is it about?
The study proposes a framework for cultural ergonomics in product design. Cultural ergonomics is an approach that considers interaction- and experience-based variations among cultures. Designers need to develop a better understanding of cultural ergonomics not just to participate in cultural contexts but also to develop interactive experiences for users. 探討台灣工業設計與人因工程的結合，乃至發展至今的文化人因思維，了解臺灣設計如何從設計科技到文化人因的研究歷程與發展.脈絡。

Why is it important?
Cultural ergonomics extends our understanding of cultural meaning and our ability to utilize such understanding for design and evaluate everyday products. This study aims to combine cultural ergonomics and interactive design to explore human–culture interaction in user experiences. The linnak is a typical Taiwanese aboriginal cultural object. The study identified the tri-level cultural features of the linnak and showed how to translate those features into new cultural product designs that can appeal to contemporary consumers. Cultural products, therefore, can convey the heritage and traditional values of Taiwanese aboriginal culture to modern consumers and increase the sense of spiritual essence in daily life. 本文以實務研究案例進行分析、歸納，整理臺灣人因與設計發展脈絡。本研究之主要目的有三：（1）透過臺灣經濟發展，探討人因設計的進化與轉型；（2）透過人因設計模式，探討文化人因跨界研究的過程；（3）透過研究論文個案，探討從人因工設計到文化人因發展的歷程。
