Construction Equipment Design Recommendations to Improve Operator’s and Maintenance Men’s Vocations 620199

This paper reports the accomplishments to date, along with the scheduled future projects of the SAE Construction and Industrial Machinery Technical Committee’s Subcommittee XVIII “Human Engineering.” The Committee has developed an SAE Recommended Practice “Male Physical Dimensions - Construction and Industrial Equipment Design” which provides charts and data for use by engineering designers. This Recommended Practice should result in easier and simpler operation and maintenance of equipment through the incorporation of greater standardization, accessibility, legibility, reduced effort, and improved physical comfort.
