In this paper, a formal high-level language is used to generate simulations where a manikin assembles flexible cables. The language generates assembly instructions for the manikin, which automatically performs the corresponding assembly motion with as good ergonomic as possible. Due to weight, stiffness and narrow regions, it may be difficult to perform an assembly of the cable. Our approach allows us to verify that it may be performed in an ergonomically sound way. The generated instructions
