Abstract
Successful workplace design or evaluation calls for appropriate representation of man and the man-workplace interface. Increasingly sophisticated computer aided design (CAD) systems that model man's anthropometric characteristics have evolved, addressing this requirement. Each of these systems offers a means to address man-workplace problems, but no one system is suitable for every application. To take advantage of man-modelling CAD technology, the user must select the system that most adequately satisfies his needs. The selection process can be difficult for many reasons including the capabilities of individual systems, the availability of adequate documentation, the skill levels of prospective users and the nature of the application(s) for which the system is to be used.
