This book, Advances in Applied Digital Human Modeling, is concerned with Modeling, Biomechanics and Simulation. The benefit of this area of research is to aid in the design of systems. Human modeling and simulation can reduce the need for physical prototyping and incorporate ergonomics and human factors earlier in design processes. These models provide a representation of some human aspects that can be inserted into simulations or virtual environments and facilitate prediction of safety, satisfaction, usability, performance and sustainability. These may consider the physiological, cognitive, behavioral, emotional and environmental aspects. The math and science provides a foundation for visualizations that can facilitate decision making by technical experts, management or those responsible for public policy.... semi-automatic evaluation that is based on the EAWS standard method ( Ergonomic Assessment Worksheet, Schaub et al., 2012). ... The EAWS covers four sections of relevant physical workloads in manufacturing: Section 1 includes symmetric body postures, such ... Section 2 includes action forces of the fingers ( e.g. use thumb to press in clips) and armshoulder-forces (e.g. handling of balancers and manipulators). Section 3 includes manual material handling of weights above 3 kg.
