RAMSIS®, one of the world's leading software solutions for ergonomics, is available for Autodesk® Factory Design Suite 2013 and Autodesk® Factory Design Suite 2014. Users can perform ergonomic analysis for factory planning and workplace layout.

Features include the fast generation of manikins based on gender and international databases, view analysis, reach analysis, integration of standards like NASA, NIOSH and max force analysis which helps users to perform optimal reachability and to simulate operability of all operating controls.

With RAMSIS, as a tightly integrated add-in for Autodesk Factory Design Suite, the human model can be incorporated in the early stages of planning and product development. By integrating human models into the process chain from the development stage all the way through to production, conceptual decisions and product revisions can be made more easily resulting in time and cost savings.

Target Industries:  RAMSIS, as a tightly integrated add-in for Autodesk Factory Design Suite, addresses companies in the field of factory and workplace design, i.e.
