Reporting Capabilities - Lift-Lower Analysis

ascenari.gif (1364 bytes)

This produces comprehensive report files from the manikin specifications. This will gather the results of the various analyses found in the Human workbenches including an analysis of the manikin's vision.

The Lift-Lower analysis cannot be directly activated within a report object, because this analysis, unlike the others, requires two input postures, instead of one, to operate.  The log for this analysis will be managed by the Lift-Lower analysis panel itself.  This panel will be enhanced by adding a Reporting section, which will be composed of a file chooser button together with a text field, and a button Update Log, which will store the results of the current analysis into the specified log file.  The Update of the workbench will have no effect on the Lift-Lower analysis log file.
