Abstract:
This thesis describes an anthropometric and biomechanical computer model of man which is an integral part of the SAMMIE workplace and work task design system. Some aspects of the design process have been studied, especially with respect to the inclusion of human factors in the design process via the medium of computer graphics. A satisfactory way of achieving this objective is seen as being the provision of a pictorial model of man which facilitates the evaluation of important ergonomic design criteria concerned with the problems of reach, fit, movement patterns, strength, fatigue, comfort and balance. A description is given of how such a model has been built, and linked with a similar model of the workplace to provide an integrated design and evaluation package.
