Factory Layout / Line Planning

View more Use Cases

When planning factory layouts and production lines, the aim is to design the production and material flow efficiently and to optimally use available space. The early use of Virtual Reality (VR), and thus of large virtual prototypes, enables extensive error analyses, whether alone at the office desk or in teamwork in virtual space. Especially the VR tool from R3DT ensures complete “immersion” in the planned assembly line or on manual work lines. Planning is secured here with the highest concentration.

Intuitive planning “as in real” in the virtual assembly hall

The Cross Connected® software developed by R3DT enables virtual walking through factory floors with the help of gaming VR headsets such as HTC Vive or Oculus Rift and makes the workflow comprehensible in the best sense of the word. In addition, the machine set-up can be changed in the VR room. Feasibility studies and process simulations for modified production structures are thus possible at any time. For protection against industrial accidents, planned gripping areas, separation systems, visibility conditions and escape routes are secured in 3D models. 

All in all, the VR tool provides valuable insights from the basic evaluation to the concept and detailed planning, leading to savings of up to 30 percent. The software can be used for coordination and documentation during implementation monitoring. The early, virtual instruction of technicians and workers also shortens the set-up and start-up times of new production lines.
