STATIC AND DYNAMIC SIMULATION AS A WORKING TOOL FOR HUMAN ENGINEERING RESEARCH APPLIED TO THE DESIGN OF SHIP BRIDGES
To optimize the man-machine relationship there are two different approaches. The adaptation of man to machine and at the other hand machine to man. The first mentioned approach is dealing with training and selection, the latter is considering the adaptation of the machine to given human characteristics, generally called Human Engineering. At the present time the research in the field of Human Engineering, in relation to maritime operations, concentrates mainly on the design of appropriate lay-out of all control elements installed on board. The working tool for this research is simulation. Mock-ups (static simulation of the work-environment in future) can be built to study an appropriate lay-out of the workspot. If the man is to work as an operator of control elements with the machine then the dynamics of the machine are to be simulated and adapted to the limited dynamics of the human operator. The aim of this type of study is an increasing of the effectiveness of the man/machine system and a contribution to the well-being of the individual. Applications of these techniques are discussed.
