An object-oriented anthropometric database was developed as a framework of integrating into an ergonomic interface model, data for workplace modelling, and ergonomic evaluation functions as well as basic anthropometric data required to construct a man model. In order to develop an ergonomic man model representing operators that interact with their working environments, not only anthropometric data but also efficient handling of such data and accurate representation of the workspace are needed as a prerequisite to proper ergonomic evaluation. In this research, these three sets of data with distinct characteristics were incorporated into a common integrated database needed for the manipulation of an ergonomic man model together with the generation of an anthropometric man itself. An object-oriented database scheme was used for designing the database.
