EVALUATION OF BRIDGE LAYOUT BY MEANS OF A MOCK-UP

The layouts were based on ergonomic principles and on information obtained in questionnaires completed by mariners (1973) and on ergonomic data concerning illumination, workspace, noise, climate etc. Mock-ups were constructed which represented the bridge of a big ship (bulk carrier, tanker, container ship), and presented for evaluation to 26 Dutch navigation officers, 16 Dutch pilots, and 17 superintendents from Europe. The suggested layouts were received very positively. Order from NSFI as No. 17212.
