Abstract
The Operational Human Engineering Group at the Defence and Civil Institute of Environmental Medicine (DCIEM) is currently, developing under contract, the Soldier's Day (SD) multimedia database. The Soldier's Day database provides a compendium of dismounted soldier's information including organization, roles, tasks performed, descriptions of current equipment and clothing used and their problems, and relevant human factors and lessons learned that are applicable to future soldier system projects. Concurrent with the development of the SD database, DCIEM managed the first large scale anthropometric survey of the CF Land Force. The aim of this project was to create and populate an Anthropometry Module within the Soldier's Day (SD) Database to include the results of the 97 Land Force Anthropometric Survey. This report identifies the conceptual development, the changes made to the program and basis instructions regarding the use of the anthropometry module. To explore and develop the concept of an Anthropometry Module, a meeting was held at DCIEM on December 16, 1998. Based on the Statement of Work (Reference A), possible ideas and approches were story-boarded and presented for discussion. Once the concepts were developed, various software programming changes were made to the SD Database to allow the addition and population of the Anthropometry Module. TRUNCATED
