RAMSIS is the world’s leading 3D CAD manikin. It realistically simulates vehicle occupants and analyzes the ergonomics of interiors, allowing you to ensure a high level of product maturity and already save on physical prototypes during the early development of your products on the CAD model.
Scientifically validated data on body measurements and behavior
Market-leading functionality for ergonomics analysis
Posture models and physiological joint simulation
Based on the world’s largest anthropometric database, RAMSIS enables you to generate any target group, to define size, gender, population and age-specific characteristics and model them in 3D.
The RAMSIS occupants can be given different roles, each of which knows its typical posture and movement models. RAMSIS automatically calculates these task and role-specific postures based on the vehicle interior. Thanks to state-of-the-art posture studies, the virtual test persons behave realistically when sitting, standing or performing tasks.
RAMSIS can integrate the data of individual test persons or use it for defining the test persons pool. The software is also based on data from field studies on movement behavior in vehicles, in interiors and on the operation of elements in the vehicle.
Many animation and simulation functions are available in RAMSIS. Manikin movements can be recorded for simple simulation of processes. Objects (e.g. shoes or helmets) can be attached to occupants and included in the posture calculation and analysis. RAMSIS also has an integrated gender-dependent shoe library.
All controls within reach for driver and passengers
Instruments and streets in view – also with the help of mirrors
Visual acuity, time of gaze change or reflection
Enough room for drivers, passengers or employees
Maximum permissible actuating forces for operating elements
Optimum seat adjustment range and seat design for test collectives
Belt routing over vehicle occupants and dummies
Simulation of the motion sequence
Age-specific performance factors, e.g. strength and vision
RAMSIS reflects the project-oriented perspective in modern development: The project, test collective/filter, examination or role can be adopted and easily adapted for new concepts and studies – external ergonomics documentation almost becomes superfluous.
RAMSIS has a task editor, definition & control of object kinematics, the ability to manually align postures, a motion recorder and a configuration menu for defining user-specific settings.
RAMSIS is available either as stand-alone software for Windows or fully integrated into Catia V5 and Siemens NX. RAMSIS or ergonomics data from RAMSIS can also be integrated into design systems, and RAMSIS geometries can be imported or exported using standard formats.
"The passenger cabin is one of the most expensive properties in the world, which is why every square inch is examined to save space – but there’s still enough room for comfort and ergonomics."
"During driving, the back suffers more from understrain, especially from lack of movement due to prolonged sitting – so seats must be optimally adjustable."
"Seats help save money. With 120 seats, a weight of 4 kg per seat saves just under a ton. This saves 43 tons of kerosene per aircraft per year."
"On average, a professional truck driver sits in a vehicle for more than 1,500 hours a year."
"German motorists spend 41 hours a year looking for a parking slot."
"Over 40 percent of all German motorists spend more than an hour and a half in their vehicles every day."
