3D Human Modeling and Simulation with Ergonomics Analysis

Humanproof 3D human modeling and simulation tools permit our analysts to insert anthropometrically accurate virtual manikins into 3D CAD models of proposed or existing spaces and equipment configurations. The use of virtual manikins allows for the assessment of spaces for adequate clearance and operator workflow through areas with equipment. It permits the assessment of operator or maintainer line-of-sight and field-of-view in various equipment configurations. This technique is also used to determine whether operator limb angles and space accessibility will allow for proper maintenance of systems. Equipment layout can also be assessed by whether it is accessible based on height and other ergonomic variables. The use of virtual manikins representative of the user population allows our team to provide detailed assessments and determine recommendations for manned spaces and equipment layouts in regards to system safety, operability, accessibility, and maintenance.
