Many human factors specialists lack the engineering knowledge to communicate possible modifications to their design team. Closing this gap between capability and expectation, Handbook of Digital Human Modeling provides a detailed description of the fundamentals, tools, and applications in the field digital human modeling. The book covers applications in advanced manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, data visualization and simulation, defense and military systems, design for impaired mobility, healthcare and medical, information systems, and product design. This text also contains tools to help evaluate product and work design while reducing the need for physical prototyping.
