Abstract Workplaces representing different types of computer-aided design tasks were analyzed in eight firms. The data gathered concern the equipment used, data presentation, workplace dimensions and the physical environment. As a rule, the optical quality of VDU screens is good. Workplace design and layout, however, are not always suitable for CAD tasks. Specific ergonomic guidelines are proposed for CAD work.
