CATIA Ergonomics Evaluation
Create and Evaluate Lifelike Manikins in Context
DELMIA Ergonomics Evaluation (EGE) is the core product for creating Version 6 Lifelike Manikins with standard anthropometry (human body dimensions). Users can place them into the Version 6 3D model and evaluate human interaction with a product or workplace. EGE delivers an intuitive user interface with a wide range of manipulation and analysis tools to make ergonomics assessment accessible to all Version 6 users.
- Integration of human factors and ergonomics requirements during workplace or product design
- Early detection of potential ergonomic issues
- Capture and re-use of ergonomic enterprise standards
Intuitive manikin creation and positioningEGE makes it easy to create manikins of either gender from any population, with specific stature and weight, in an immersive 3D environment. The manikin can be placed quickly in the virtual environment by dragging it to the target location or by clicking on the location.
Easy, intuitive manikin manipulationManipulating the manikin is simple. Any part of the manikin’s body can be selected and moved using the corresponding manipulator (inverse or forward kinematics) based on the body segment selected. Users can define the way manikins efficiently reach and grasp any object. These pre-defined human skills can be re-used for similar objects in the same virtual model.
Ergonomics evaluation of the 3D spaceEGE users have a rich set of ergonomics assessment tools, including detailed reach envelopes, interferences, clashes, and swept volume. They can visualize the position of the center of gravity inside the base of support to verify that the manikin is in balance.
Customizable manikin attributesUsers can set specific attributes for manikins. They can define colors and loads on individual body parts, off-sets for manipulating body segments, attachments of objects on the manikin, vision and basic anthropometric parameters, as well as detailed joints posture and manikin position. These customized attributes can be copied to other manikins in the virtual model or saved in a catalog for future evaluations.
Manikin vision assessmentThe manikin vision assessment capability provides a separate vision window that displays the field of vision from the manikin’s eyes. The line of sight, the vision cones and the field of view can be displayed. They are customizable to simulate visual limits created by equipment such as a helmet.
