Pro­cess eva­lua­ti­on in VR — com­pre­hen­si­ve ana­ly­sis through inter­ac­ti­ve testing

Test and ana­ly­ze your plans in the vir­tu­al fac­to­ry. Thanks to the natu­ral inter­ac­tion in VR you can run through work­flows and pro­ces­ses. You can easi­ly and indi­vi­du­al­ly mea­su­re the wal­king and grasping distan­ces, crea­te added value, avoid was­te and incre­a­se your effi­ci­en­cy. With Halo­cli­ne Per­for­mance, you can also take ergo­no­mics into account alrea­dy during the work­place design. This means that you no lon­ger have to wait until the finis­hed work­sta­tion has been phy­si­cal­ly build on your shopfloor.

Recording

You can test and expe­ri­ence the work­sta­tions crea­ted in Halo­cli­ne Lay­out. By play­ing through assem­bly pro­ces­ses in the vir­tu­al works­pace, you will gain an intui­ti­ve under­stan­ding of the station’s dimen­si­ons. Pro­blems, such as too lar­ge distan­ces bet­ween assem­bly worker and load car­ri­er on the shelf, beco­me visi­ble at an ear­ly sta­ge. Moreo­ver, you can noti­ce unfa­vor­able pos­tu­res direct­ly on your own body. You can record your move­ments and play them back in VR at any time. On the one hand, this hel­ps you to com­pa­re dif­fe­rent vari­ants, and on the other hand it faci­li­ta­tes the exchan­ge with colleagues.

At a glance:

  • Natu­ral inter­ac­tion with the vir­tu­al workstation
  • Run­ning through dif­fe­rent pro­cess variants
  • Record­ing of moti­on sequences

Analyze

In the next step, the record­ings are used for the ergo­no­mics and effi­ci­en­cy ana­ly­sis. The spa­ghet­ti dia­grams, which you can acti­va­te during play­back of the record­ings, ensu­re effi­ci­en­cy of moti­on sequen­ces and distan­ces. You recei­ve infor­ma­ti­on about wal­king and grasping paths and can check your plan­ning for added value. You can also use the record­ings to trace the move­ments, actions and the viewing direc­tion. Trough the traf­fic light color coding, ergo­no­mic defi­ci­ts can be quick­ly reco­gni­zed. If, for examp­le, a work­bench or shelf is not at the right height for the per­son con­cer­ned, you can make this chan­ge at the work­sta­tion in Halo­cli­ne Lay­out.

At a glance:

  • Data visua­liz­a­ti­on of wal­king and grasp paths (e.g. spa­ghet­ti diagrams)
  • Ergo­no­mic ana­ly­sis and adap­t­ati­on to individuals
  • Com­pa­ri­son of vari­ants in terms of pro­cess, time and ergonomics

Further use

Work ite­ra­tively and make chan­ges to pro­cess impro­ve­ment direct­ly in Halo­cli­ne Lay­out. By inte­gra­ting CAD data you incre­a­se the rea­lism of the assem­bly pro­ces­ses. Coor­di­na­te cri­ti­cal moments with the respon­si­ble per­sons for occup­a­tio­nal safe­ty and team lea­ders direct­ly in VR or via video record­ings. Using indi­vi­du­al cali­bra­ti­on you can com­pa­re pro­ces­ses with dif­fe­rent body sizes. Halo­cli­ne Per­for­mance offers the pos­si­bi­li­ty to seg­ment the record­ings into wal­king and grasp paths and to add anno­ta­ti­ons. For a quan­ti­ta­ti­ve eva­lua­ti­on you can export the data as Excel file. At the same time you crea­te a tem­pla­te for fur­ther work in pro­cess planning.

At a glance:

  • Export of the data in excel files
  • Ite­ra­ting the results with Halo­cli­ne Layout
  • Cross-loca­­ti­on pro­cess ana­ly­sis with other disci­pli­nes by multi-user
