    The main objective of the research contribution presented in this paper was to enhance the usability of digital kinetic human models in the context of virtual prototyping and human-machine system simulation when the situation is dynamic. Main tasks were applying and evaluating two commercial digital human models, creating own digital kinetic human model, connecting ergonomic and safety analysis methods to system. The goal of the VTT Automation's research contribution was to enhance the digital human model in the concurrent design context both in a direct contact with the machine manufacturer or using a product development portal as contact interface. This includes the development of participating team-based concurrent engineering and integration of digital human model to the human-machine simulation, too.
