MAN Commercial Vehicles goes with RAMSIS

More ergonomics for trucks and buses

Kaiserslautern/Munich, 17th March 2009 – The MAN Commercial Vehicles Group (MAN Nutzfahrzeuge Gruppe) with registered offices in Munich, Germany, will use RAMSIS Industrial Vehicles for the design of its drivers' cabins. Drivers' workplaces in buses and trucks see intensive use - and the amount of stress the driver experiences depends on the ergonomic design of his cab. More comfort and a high degree of safety reduce fatigue and absences caused by illness, ensuring an increase in driver efficiency. RAMSIS fully meets the specific requirements involved in vehicle driver cab design. The use of RAMSIS increases the level of ergonomic competence in the product development process - meaning that results can be determined fast, reliably and objectively.

RAMSIS Industrial Vehicles is a CAD manikin for the ergonomic design of vehicles in the strategy and conception phase. The operability of the vehicle controls and the feasibility of carrying out maintenance and repair work can already be verified on the digital model. This guarantees that the comfort and safety of the driver is assured, even before the final model freeze takes place.

“Ergonomic design today is an absolute must in vehicle development. Vehicles have to offer the highest degree of comfort - and be designed to optimally match the different physiological attributes of drivers and other vehicle occupants. That's why ergonomics is an integral part of our company philosophy”, said Holger Koos, Head of the Design Department for Trucks, commenting on the use of RAMSIS software at MAN Commercial Vehicles.
