    The main elements of the method have been enhanced separtely in industrial cases. The main goal was to compose the results as a method. The main objectives were: a) to ensure the identification of critical tasks involving human intervention and identification of potential safety hazards; and b) to find out methods and technigues adaptable in virtual environment aided design procedure and system. The developed method has four main elements. The first is a human-design approach orientation consisting of participation and group working focusing on the analyses, design, design and development in order to give problem solving approach. The other three are more technical orientated elements: a) modelling of 3D environment equating to actual industrial production and working environment; b) construction of virtual environment and complementary peripheral equipment system; and c) simple, functional features comprising simulations and animations to meet problem solving needs.
