Despite advances in manufacturing process automation, human operators still continue to play a central role in the definition and performance of most of production systems operations. Digital Human Modelling & Simulation (DHMS) can be used to build models for production systems where abilities of the operators are related to the task requirements. This article provides a general framework for DHMS and includes a review of successful cases studies where the purpose is to design industrial workstations combining ergonomics and an engineering approach. The objective is to provide both a starting point for more research and also a classification scheme for DHMS based studies. As a result, this article will help the reader to understand how a DHMS study can be usefully developed in different sectors and by means of different methods and tools.

Abstract

Despite advances in manufacturing process automation, human operators still continue to play a central role in the definition and performance of most of production systems operations. Digital Human Modelling & Simulation (DHMS) can be used to build models for production systems where abilities of the operators are related to the task requirements. This article provides a general framework for DHMS and includes a review of successful cases studies where the purpose is to design industrial workstations combining ergonomics and an engineering approach. The objective is to provide both a starting point for more research and also a classification scheme for DHMS based studies. As a result, this article will help the reader to understand how a DHMS study can be usefully developed in different sectors and by means of different methods and tools.
