TNO Technische Menskunde Publication year 2001 Abstract The Royal Netherlands Navy is planning to design a hydrographic survey vessel to replace the currently used vessels in order to extend the tasks of an Officer by reducing require manning. The design includes the arrangements of workspace and the detailed design of workplaces. Digital human models are used to check the anthropometric qualities of the design and enables a fast and iterative design process. This project shows an ergonomic design process integrating a wide range of human factors knowledge. The available results help to optimize the design of the ship bridge in order to meet the demand on minimum manning.
