    Abstract

    This paper details the development and design of a Human Factors (HF) evaluation study being used to inform development iterations of the ManuVAR solution - a modular virtual reality platform to be used to support high-value manual work throughout the product lifecycle in 5 different industrial areas: terrestrial satellite assembly, assembly line design, remote maintenance of trains, inspection and maintenance of power plants, and large machine assembly process design.
