The planning of manual or machine workstations and the optimization of ergonomics at such a workstation is one of the most important, but also time-consuming tasks in industrial engineering. With the Virtual Reality (VR) tool from R3DT, this optimization time is shortened while reducing the error rate at the same time.

A VR software for workplace planning

R3DT makes the planning of work systems tangible in the literal sense of the word: all persons involved can experience the planned workplace in virtual space in its original size through VR glasses. With the help of Leap Motion’s hand tracking system, it is possible to work on a virtual model with bare hands as in real. All this is done on the basis of existing 3D CAD data, which are projected into the VR world at the push of a button. Here virtual prototypes can be changed or adapted at any time. This makes it possible to carry out a large number of test runs: As a result, more iterations secure the planning process much earlier and the time-to-market is significantly reduced.

With the help of the Ergo-Check in VR developed by us, essential ergonomic questions can be objectively clarified in early phases. To do this, the planner positions himself at the virtual prototype, places himself in different body heights (percentiles), and tests whether the reach zones and fields of view are sufficient for assembly. In addition, the knowledge of other specialists and affected employees can be quickly integrated at any time. Lengthy discussions are no longer necessary. The construction of mockups becomes superfluous.
