Abstract : A mathematical model that positions and moves a variable sized 23-pin joint articulated stick-man in a crewstation environment is presented. The model simulates the motion of pilots in a given cockpit configuration considering gross reach capability required by a task. It utilizes a non-linear optimization technique to position and orient the joints, analyzes the viewing capability after the operation and detects body intersections with the seatback during the task.
