is the discipline dedicated to applying technical knowledge about human beings to products, processes, systems and work environments so that these essentials can be designed to withstand the demands of users. The need for such a discipline has arisen due of considerations of health and safety, efficiency, comfort and the development of human interests and potentials.
Virtual Human Engineering
recognises human beings in different virtual environments. Designing for humans is a decisive factor in the quality of products. Ergonomics, safety and comfort hold important advantages over the competition and increase customer satisfaction. Extensive virtual analysis of design and construction allow for early corrections to be implemented and avoid subsequent expensive redesign.
CharAT Machine Plug-in
The CharAT Ergonomics Expert Version is now delivered with the CharAT Machine plug-in, a powerful software tool for virtual simulation and analysis of kinematic systems. CharAT Machine facilitates the simulation of controlled mechanical systems. With the aid of CharAT Human and CharAT Machine Objects very complex human-controlled mechanical systems can be modeled and analyzed comfortably.
