Human Posture Analysis in a nutshell
Human Posture Analysis is based on a best-in-class human modeling system which, for many years, has permitted detailed investigation into humancentered design issues in the context of a workplace before it physically exists. Human Posture Analysis focuses on how human posture can affect task performance by analyzing local and global postures, preferred angles, and comfort.
Human Posture Analysis permits users to quantitatively and qualitatively analyze all aspects of manikin posture. Whole body and localized postures can be examined, scored, iterated, and optimized to determine operator comfort and performance throughout the complete range of task motion in accordance with published comfort databases.
User-friendly dialog boxes provide postural information for all segments of the manikin. Color-coding techniques ensure that problem areas can be quickly identified and iterated to optimize posture. Human Posture Analysis allows users to create specific comfort and strength libraries to meet the needs of individual applications.

Before Reading this Guide
Before reading this guide, you should be familiar with basic Version 5 concepts such as document windows, standard and view toolbars. Therefore, we recommend that you read the Infrastructure User's Guide that describes generic capabilities common to all Version 5 products. It also describes the general layout of V5 and the interoperability between workbenches.
You may also like to read the Human Builder User's Guide, for which the appropriate license is required.

Getting the Most Out of this Guide
To get the most out of this guide, we suggest that you start reading and performing the step-by-step Getting Started tutorial. This tutorial will show
you how to create a manikin.
Once you have finished, you should move on to the User Tasks section of the book that provides procedures for using the features of Human Posture
The Workbench Description section describes each functional icon or command in the workbenches.
The Glossary provides definitions of terms specific to Human Posture Analysis and related products.
Navigating in the Split View mode is recommended. This mode offers a framed layout allowing direct access from the table of contents to the information.
