Benefits and Description
The Manikin Center of Gravity (CofG) functionality displays the manikin's CofG as a coordinate systems (CSYS). The center of gravity calculation is based on posture, accessories, and any item that the manikin is carrying. The centers of mass for each manikin segment are preset. If anything in the manikin scenario changes, the manikin CofG is recalculated. You can save the manikin CofG as a feature.
The relationship between the manikin's posture and the load it can bear is calculated to help you evaluate and then optimize for manual carrying tasks.
