Abstract:

The Cockpit Geometry Evaluation CGE Program is developing improved methods of evaluating the interaction and compatibility of crew members with crew stations. The main feature is a computer program system CGECPS containing a 23-joint, three-dimensional man-model BOEMAN which can mathematically simulate human motion. During Phase II-A, an existing cockpit design A-7E was partially evaluated by the CGECPS. The results were compared with human factors data and the CGE system correctly analyzed more than 80 of the tasks performed. The validation of the man-model joint movement parameters was also continued in Phase II-A by comparing them with human movement parameters. The comparison results indicated that the Phase II-A man-model developments which were primarily oriented towards improving the computer efficiency of the man-model have also improved the accuracy of the man-model.
