Abstract: A bed is a piece of furniture used as a place to sleep or relax. Students generally need a wide range of accessories to meet their daily requirements like beds for sleeping, tables for studying, shelves for keeping things etc. which demands a lot of space. So, here a multipurpose bed is designed targeting especially on college students living in hostels. Different customer needs have been identified, existing models have been studied and bed has been ergonomically designed. Concept of ergonomics and its applications in product design along with anthropometric data has been reviewed. The additional features of the bed are attached reading table, shelf for storing books, hanger for hanging clothes, and place for keeping foot wear. Bed and all other components are designed and mechanisms have been developed using CAD software (CATIA V5R17) and simulated. The model has been also evaluated using digital human modeling.
