A new version of RAMSIS in CATIA V5

Human Solutions targets the international market with its ergonomics software: Version 1.4 with new anthropometric databases for the USA and China

Kaiserslautern, 19. April 2005 – effective immediately, the Human Solutions Company of Kaiserslautern, Germany is offering its customers new functions with RAMSIS in CATIA V5 Version 1.4. In addition to improved storage management and other small modifications, the main difference this new update provides for the new version lies in the two new anthropometric databases N-HANES III (USA) and China.

RAMSIS is used in the design of vehicle interiors - with the help of virtual human beings, a wide range of postures and movement sequences is analyzed from an ergonomic standpoint. The software uses so-called anthropometric databases in its calculation procedures. Since human sizes and physiques vary from country to country, statistical values from different regions are available.

“RAMSIS is the worldwide number 1 in vehicle interior design. One of the reasons for this is the fact that we don't concentrate our development efforts on a specific market - we focus on the global picture“, said Dr. Andreas Seidl, Managing Director of Human Solutions. "For Far Eastern companies it's absolutely paramount that their own population statistics are taken into account in the development of vehicles. That's why our new version of RAMSIS in CATIA V5 not only contains an updated USA database, but also for the first time extensive data from China."

The integration of the Chinese database has already notched up an early sales success in Shenyang Brilliance Jinbei Automobile Co., Ltd., one of China's leading car manufacturers. With its brand name Zhonghua, Brilliance Auto designed and built a whole new car in-house - and the company will be using RAMSIS to help develop its further models for the Chinese market. The extensive anthropometric database covering China was one of the reasons why Brilliance Auto decided on RAMSIS.
