Bentley Motors chooses RAMSIS

British manufacturer of luxury cars will use Human Solutions software during the development stage of all its models

Kaiserslautern, 11. April 2003 – Human Solutions GmbH has added yet another exclusive car manufacturer to its list of RAMSIS customers - Bentley Motors. The British company will use the ergonomics software in the development of all their new models. Created by Human Solutions, the software specialists from Kaiserslautern, Germany, this system will ensure that Bentley Motors can fully cater to their customers’ individual demands for comfort and for specific ergonomic requirements.

RAMSIS for the luxury class

Bentley decided on the RAMSIS Catia version (software for computer-aided design). Bentley designers can utilize the CAD data even before the first plastic model has been created - because the RAMSIS data already provides designers with first impressions of the vehicle interior on the computer screen. This knowledge is integrated into the first model and facilitates error correction and the making of changes – integral parts of every development process.

Standard ergonomics software for car manufacturers

Over 70% of the world’s automotive manufacturers use the CAD tool RAMSIS by Human Solutions GmbH (the English translation of the German abbreviation is "computer-supported mathematical-anthropological system for vehicle occupant simulation").

The current version of this successful ergonomics software is RAMSIS 3.8. Special features include posture models for front and rear seat vehicle passengers and pilot models for aircraft cockpit design. The new functions for vehicle interior design focus on the analysis of seats and belt systems. A Task Wizard (task assistant) supports the complex process of defining movement sequences and tasks, facilitating the introduction of customer-specific analysis standards. Working procedures are simplified thanks to improved geometrical functions as well as API interface-enhanced methods of integrating additional functions into the program.
