The paper is focused on development of a methodology for designing special purpose vehicles' cockpits minimizing vibration and impacts in the workspace. Finite elements method is utilized as the main tool in assessment of the structural design. The method also forms a foundation for further topology optimization, which allows for obtaining lightweight adaptable to production design fulfilling both vibration and impact requests, standards and regulations. The method has been used in designing
