Analytical Tools for Integrating Flight Crew Equipment 941319
The computer technology currently available provides new analytical tools for integrating flight crew equipment for aerospace vehicles more efficiently and rapidly than ever before. The principal new tools are based on modeling techniques used in computer aided design. Graphical analysis tools which have been used to good advantage in the Space Station program include PLAID, Unigraphics, IGOAL and the Douglas Human Modeling System. Animation sequences of crew tasks based on graphical analysis have also proven valuable. Current use of computer modeling and graphical analysis techniques has shown them to be a major benefit in integrating flight crew equipment for aerospace vehicles.
