[Kapitel]

This chapter will only briefly describe the most commonly used evaluation tools for physical work loads, body postures, reach abilities and fields of vision integrated in different Digital Human Modelling Software (DHMS). We try to do so in a way that is neither too specific to any particular DHMS nor so generic that all evaluation tools, more or less integrated in DHMS, are covered. The continuation of this chapter is structured according to the different tool sets that are available in the most commercial DHMS. We have chosen to divide the tool sets into three groups: 1) Quantitative evaluation tools, 2) Semi-quantitative tools and 3) Tools for discomfort, anthropometry, human performance and cognition. The main focus of this chapter is addressed to group one (quantitative evaluation tools), whereas group two and three are less extensive.

Nyckelord: ergonomic evaluation, ergonomic assessment, digital human modelling tools


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.
