Abstract: It is well known that knowledge of ‘Ergonomics/ Human Factors Engineering’ is of utmost necessity for any product, facility and workplace design to achieve optimal man-machine compatibility in terms of physical, cognitive and environmental factors. While ergonomics evaluation using physical mockups and prototype with real human trials is tiresome, time-consuming, and costly; virtual ergonomics evaluation using CAD model of human and products/facilities is extremely beneficial to get rid of all these issues. The course ‘Digital Human Modeling and Simulation for Virtual Ergonomics’ deals not only with the basics of Ergonomics but also covers the all the relevant topics related to virtual ergonomics evaluation techniques including its advantages and limitations.
