Abstract : The Cockpit Geometry Evaluation (CGE) Program is a development of improved methods for evaluating the physical compatibility of crew members with crew stations. The heart of the program is a 23-joint, three-dimensional man-model (BOEMAN) that simulates the motion of humans performing tasks in a given environment. The computer program system (CPS) ties the project together. The system uses an updatable bank of anthropological, environmental and task sequence data. This volume contains both the historical development of CGECPS as well as the most recent capabilities and modifications to the Computer Program System. (Modified author abstract)
