Human Simulation and Ergonomics

Use human modeling to simulate, analyze and optimize assembly processes and ergonomics

Manufacturers in a variety of industries must address the ergonomic aspects of manual operations during the early stages of product design and manufacturing planning. Health and safety aspects of human assembly operations are important compliance factors, and every manufacturer needs to find the most cost-effective way to address safety in their production facilities.

With Tecnomatix human simulation and ergonomics, you can improve the safety, efficiency and comfort of your workplace environment using human modeling in a virtual environment. Human-driven operations can be analyzed with lifelike models that can be scaled to match different population characteristics. You can test design and operational aspects of a wide variety of human factors, including injury risk, timing, user comfort, reachability, line-of-sight, energy expenditure, fatigue limits and other important parameters. This helps you to ensure compliance with ergonomic standards during planning and to avoid the discovery of human performance and feasibility issues during production.


Jack is a human simulation tool that is used to populate designs with virtual people and perform human factors and ergonomic analysis. You can use Jack to simulate, test, improve and refine product designs and industrial tasks using the most comprehensive set of human performance tools available on the today.

Process Simulate Human

Process Simulate Human allows you to virtually develop and verify process plans for manufacturing systems in a collaborative, data-managed 3D environment that can be shared by multiple engineering and manufacturing disciplines. Process Simulate Human enables realistic simulation of human tasks, assessment of human performance and creation of effective ergonomic studies.
