To ensure that maintenance is optimized on future weapon systems, the Air Forces Armstrong Laboratory is developing a design tools called DEPTH Design Evaluation for Personnel, Training and Human Factors. The virtual mockup approach is more timely, more flexible, and less costly than a physical mockup approach. DEPTH will also be used to provide logistics support analyses and demonstrate tasks for training purposes. One of the challenges in the development of DEPTH was to provide an efficient method to control the movement of human figure models. This paper describes development of a taxonomy of motion models to allow rapid simulation and evaluation of design maintainability and human-design interaction.
