Remote Collaboration

Over­co­ming distances with VR- vir­tu­al col­la­bo­ra­ti­on in indus­tri­al engineering

Regard­less of the size of the pro­ject, whe­ther plan­ning of an enti­re new hall or con­ti­nuous impro­ve­ments on the shop flo­or: the design of work­sta­tions is decisi­ve for the effi­ci­en­cy of pro­duc­tion and the health of the employees. Com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on and col­la­bo­ra­ti­on are typi­cal challenges.

Mista­kes are cos­t­ly and still hap­pen far too often. Usual­ly the­se are based on incor­rect data , limi­t­ed coope­ra­ti­on bet­ween depart­ments and dif­fi­cul­ties in communication.

Halo­cli­ne has made it its busi­ness to crea­te an under­stan­da­ble plan­ning envi­ron­ment that sol­ves the­se chal­lenges through the pos­si­bi­li­ties of vir­tu­al rea­li­ty and is acces­si­ble to all par­ti­ci­pan­ts from anywhere.

Experience rather than imagine

Enter your vir­tu­al shop­f­lo­or together

Vir­tu­al rea­li­ty makes it pos­si­ble to plan spa­ti­al­ly right from the start: esti­mat­ing paths or rea­ching out for a com­po­nent — on a 2D screen, this requi­res a lot of ima­gi­na­ti­on. With Halo­cli­ne and the mul­­ti-user fea­ture, com­mu­ni­ca­ting plan­ning results beco­mes a simp­le mat­ter. Once the first ite­ra­ti­on of 3D lay­out plan­ning in Halo­cli­ne Lay­out is com­ple­ted, it’s time to coor­di­na­te with colleagues.

With the mul­­ti-user in Halo­cli­ne Per­for­mance, users can enter the pre­vious­ly plan­ned shop­f­lo­or tog­e­ther with their col­le­agues, dis­cuss the plan­ning sta­tus of future work­places and eva­lua­te the dif­fe­rent vari­ants. Here, chan­ge requests and ide­as can be dis­cus­sed direct­ly on the digi­tal twin of the pro­duc­tion hall.

What are the advantages of the multi-user feature?

By using Halocline…

  • col­la­bo­ra­ti­on in indus­tri­al engi­nee­ring is also pos­si­ble remotely.
  • misun­derstan­dings in the coor­di­na­ti­on of plan­ning results are avoided.
  • tra­vel cos­ts to pro­duc­tion sites abroad are no lon­ger necessary.


For everyone & from everywhere

Plan­ning tog­e­ther at the digi­tal twin — regard­less of location

Indus­tri­al engi­nee­ring in vir­tu­al rea­li­ty thus not only offers the third dimen­si­on for a bet­ter under­stan­ding, but also increa­ses the plan­ning qua­li­ty and the accep­tance at the start of pro­duc­tion. Halo­cli­ne enables inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry col­la­bo­ra­ti­on bet­ween indus­tri­al engi­neers, logi­sti­ci­ans, workers and mana­gers. All par­ti­ci­pan­ts enter the vir­tu­al pro­duc­tion area tog­e­ther in order to plan sus­tain­ab­ly and effi­ci­ent­ly — regard­less of whe­ther they are in the same room in rea­li­ty or on ano­ther continent.
