This paper study and clarify problems, needs and opportunities when working with anthropometric diversity in digital human modelling (DHM) systems. A comparison between product development and production development in Swedish automotive industry is made. Interviews with DHM users and ergonomics specialists about their way of working with anthropometric diversity confirmed that simulations are often done with only one or a few human models. The reason for this is claimed to be time consuming processes, both at the creation of the human model but mainly when correctly positioning the model in the CAD environment.
