Abstract

The health and safety of the operators of machines is an important consideration during the design of such products. A human modelling program has been created within a constraint environment that can interact with the products and models of the environment. Real restrictions are imposed by the use of constraint rules and the incorporation of anthropomorphic data. With this representation natural postures of humans can be generated and their interaction with objects such, as process machinery, can be evaluated during the early stages of design.
