Performing Virtual Operator-In-The-Loop Evaluations at the Earliest Stages of Cab Design

Presented by: Steve Beck, President, CEO, SantosHuman Inc.


Human-in-the-Loop (HITL) systems create challenges for every manufacturer from golf clubs to space stations.  Getting the design ‘right’ is the goal and we all know that can take longer than anticipated because of the usual list of toxic design compromises and expensive do-overs.  Santos technologies help you and your teams get it right the first time.  It’s not luck.  It’s just the science of predicting human physical behavior and performance.

While Optimization-Driven Design provides significant benefits in addressing traditional engineering concerns at the earliest stages of design, none of the technologies used in that approach address human-in-the-loop concerns.  Assuming all customers expect improved human-centric design and performance from the products they buy, waiting until the end of a product design cycle to address human-in-the-loop issues can be ineffective at incorporating customer feedback and can result in loss of market share and confidence.

This use case webinar will demonstrate how a predictive digital human model can inform, integrate with, and support Optimization-Driven Design tools and processes at the earliest stages of cab design.  This, in turn, ensures optimum operator performance for a broad range of tasks and target markets.

Webinar Outline

  • Using a Predictive Digital Human Model for Human-Centric Trade-Off Analysis
  • Interpreting and Using the Results
  • Example Problem Description and Example Primary Operator Requirements
  • Incorporating Primary Operator Requirements into an Operator-Centric Trade-Off Analysis
  • Interpreting and Using the Results
  • The Use of the Trade-Off Analysis Results: Optimality Versus a Supporting Product Development Decisions When Optimality May Not Be Practical
  • Deriving Design Requirements from the Trade-Off Analysis Data

Who Should Attend?
Those who share the responsibility of avoiding; market rejection based on customer dissatisfaction; costly and time-consuming product redesigns; amplified risk of injury liabilities; and ongoing budget and deadline overruns should be interested in this topic including Design Engineers; Industrial Designers; Mechanical Engineers; and Human Systems Integration, Human Factors Engineering, and Ergonomics professionals.
