Objective: The aim of this study is to show a correct application procedure using the compact Korean anthropometric data application program called Korean Human Scale(KHS) for anthropometric design. Background: The nation-wide anthropometric survey project called 'Size Korea' developed KHS and distributed it to the public on the web site. But some insufficiency of the current web service of KHS misleads the users; they just put their own statue and pick up a meaningless data for a body dimension. Method: This study provides five steps to follow to read appropriate data from KHS for an anthropometric design. Results: As a case study, the depth dimension of the supervisory and control console used in the Korea nuclear power plant was determined following the procedure and compared with the console design guideline recommendation. Conclusion: The supplementary anthropometry table should be added on the web service of KHS for users to read a meaningful data for design. Application: If properly used, the KHS has a lot more potential application area than users can expect such as in control center design area.
