additional remarks Successful products have to meet high demands in regard to comfort. Three aspects have to be taken into account: 1. the comfort concerning the environment conditions (i.e. the areas of acoustics, vibrations and of climate), 2. the anthropometric design (i.e. the space conditions and the applied forces have to be adapted to the human body) and 3. the information flow between man and machine (i.e. demanding simple operations, unmistakable feedback and a minimum of operation mistakes). Using the presented methods, human models and simulation procedures predictions for a good product design are already possible in a very early state of the design phase.
