Abstract

Activity simulation: an aid for a high-speed craft bridge design process G. Le Bouar*, S. Gomes^ and J.-C. Sagof *Laboratoire Ergonomie et Securite des Activites Maritimes (LESAM), Universite de Bretagne Sud ^Equipe de recherche en ERgonomie et Conception (ERCO), Universite de Technologie de Belfort-Montbeliard Abstract Having worked on various projects of product and workplace design, in particular in the field of automobile, we have defined and experimented a pragmatic methodology to study problems of design ergonomics. This methodology combines analysis of real motor activities (displacements, actions, directions of glance, etc.) with virtual simulations using 3D anthropometric mannequins. This paper approaches the contributions and limits of human models and activity simulation for high-speed craft bridge design. Our approach is first based on real analysis activity experiences with officers on board. We will present this work in 3 steps : • the m
