Handbook of Digital Human Modeling: Research for Applied Ergonomics and Human Factors Engineering. Duffy, V.G. (Ed.). Taylor & Francis, CRC Press. (2008)

This chapter covers the main reasons for the use of Digital Human Modelling tools in the automotive manufacturing industry. The focus is entirely on physical digital human modelling, not on cognitive digital human modelling. Important aspects regarding work process and organization are covered as well as how companies deal with some identified shortcomings. The chapter also describes how fewer physical prototype vehicles has made it necessary to find new methods for training of operators adapted to the new conditions. Finally, also an example of a simulation case from the order of the case to the result presentation is given.

Nyckelord: Digital Human Modelling, automotive industry, manufacturing ergonomy

Many human factors specialists lack the engineering knowledge to communicate possible modifications to their design team. Closing this gap between capability and expectation, Handbook of Digital Human Modeling provides a detailed description of the fundamentals, tools, and applications in the field digital human modeling. The book covers applications in advanced manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, data visualization and simulation, defense and military systems, design for impaired mobility, healthcare and medical, information systems, and product design. This text also contains tools to help evaluate product and work design while reducing the need for physical prototyping.
