T14: Human Modeling for Decision Support

Half Day Tutorial

Vincent Duffy (short bio)
Purdue University, USA


An overview of models developed over the past four decades will be provided and opportunities for emerging areas will be explained.


Digital Human Models models can assist in providing early indication of product fit, occupational safety and health. Such models are incorporated into modern and commercially available Computer-Aided Engineering software tools. They incorporate best practices across a wide variety of disciplines including Product Lifecycle Management, aviation, manufacturing and service industries, automotive design and habitability for space travel. Applications in this field demonstrate how to reduce the need for prototyping and incorporate ergonomics and human factors earlier in the design process.

Target Audience:

Practitioners and researchers working in inter-disciplinary operations, decision making and design.
