Hard and Soft Constraints

I am new to Anybody Modeling System. I would like to understand clearly on the Hard and Soft Kinematic Constraints. Kindly share relevant research articles regarding the same.
Thanks in advance

Hi @naga

The short version is that soft constraints are constraints that the kinematic solver is able to violate if needed, while the hard constraints must be fulfilled.

You can read some more on the them here: Kinematic analysis of over-determinate biomechanical systems: Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering: Vol 12, No 4
