Abstract
The Defence and Civil Institute of Environmental Medicine (DCIEM) has been asked to assess the physical compatibility of Canadian Forces (CF) aircrew with current and future cockpits. The use of computer-aided design (CAD) techniques for human factors evaluations of this nature has been proposed. This report outlines an approach to selecting an appropriate CAD system and includes the definition of user needs, a listing of desirable CAD features and a review of the literature. Of the four man-modelling CAD systems reviewed in detail (CAR, COMBIMAN, SAMMIE, TEMPUS) SAMMIE currently offers DCIEM the greatest analytical power and flexibility. Its procurement is recommended on the basis of an immediate requirement of a CAD system. For future workplace evaluations, the acquisition of TEMPUS is recommended. TRUNCATED
