Abstract:

Design Evaluation for Personnel, Training and Human Factors DEPTH was a five phase program to develop software to facilitate maintainability assessment of weapon systems. This three dimensional 3-D graphical simulation of human activity was primarily intended to facilitate man-machine design analyses of complex systems. By importing computer aided design CAD data, the human figure models and analysis algorithms can help to ensure components can be seen, reached, lifted and removed by most maintainers. These simulations are also useful for logistics data capture, training, and task analysis. DEPTH was also found to be useful in obtaining task descriptions for technical manuals.
