Advanced Simulation Methods: Ergonomic Design and Simulation Interaction

2018/2019

Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The student must have knowledge, skills and competencies within the industrial design and engineering field corresponding to the completion of the MSc01 and MSc02 Industrial Design Engineering education or similar

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The aim of the course is to provide the students with relevant and advanced knowledge and skills within a subject related to ergonomic simulations. The particular subject will vary and must be related to a similar project subject.

Students who complete the module:

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Must have gained knowledge concerning available computational tools and techniques for investigation of the ergonomic properties of products
  • Must understand the connection between body loads and potential discomfort or development of injury
  • Must have knowledge concerning experimental methods for recording body motions, forces acting on the body and muscle activity

Skills

  • Must be able to define and analyse common computer tools for investigation of ergonomics issues such as digital manikins and musculoskeletal simulation
  • Must be able to interpret output from such tools in terms of risk of discomfort or injury

Competences

  • Must be able to make informed decisions on which ergonomics methods and tools to apply for a given design case
  • Must be able to apply the obtained skills to make creative decisions about new designs or design changes to products that affect their ergonomic qualities using simulation tools

Type of instruction
