Abstract
The general purpose of this project was to investigate opportunities for using CADD (Computer Assisted Design and Drafting) software to improve the application of HFE (Human Factors Engineering) methods and data to the design of naval vessels. The specific focus was the design of ship board space. Work items included: - Interviews with a cross section of DGMEM personnel (HF and other specialists) to identify the relevant human factors decision points during the design sequence from statement of operational requirements through conceptual design, feasibility studies, acquisition or delegation of design and build to external sources, verification of design compliance, test and evaluation (based on operational requirements), acceptance into service and monitoring of subsequent performance for feedback to future design or procurement cycles. - A review of anthropometric modelling developments such as SAMMIE, SAFEWORK, and Mannequin. - A review of CADD systems such as AUTOCAD, PRO-ENGINEER, ALIAS, and MICRO-STATION. - A review of NDHQ computer developments. - A review of relevant draft ANEP guidelines as candidates for integration with any CADD development.
