Safe & Productive Human-Centric Operations Powered by Virtual Reality

Break the silos between design, manufacturing, and maintenance. Decrease lead times to meet the start of production, at controlled quality and cost. Validate product integration early in a human-centric way. Integrate human interactions at the heart of the factory. Anticipate and optimize human interactions, to protect worker safety and increase productivity while ramping-up production. Develop human-centric maintenance processes early on to secure, speed up and decrease the cost of maintenance. Ensure safe & productive service operations as early as possible.

Virtual Prototyping is Key for Engineers to Beat Expectations 

Design for Reality 

Get early confidence over product lifetime performance, even for the toughest usage conditions. Catch up with the growing use of mechatronics and complex systems. Implement the latest electrification and automation technologies, by getting clarity on system design, dimensioning, testing and reliability predictions. Anticipate usage faults and misuse scenarios. Plan for operational durability and misuse. Provide fast & safe driving in rough terrains, including vehicle dynamics and stabilization. Investigate dynamic machine behavior, including for emergency stops and shutdown scenarios. Check for tipping safety. Deliver maximum productivity and maximize lifetime usage. 

Virtual Proving Ground  

Design safe, clean, and productive machinery & equipment. Cut down on real tests and prototypes. Achieve product pre-certification despite constantly evolving regulations. Face challenges related to product performance across multiple domains, from noise and acoustics to durability. Make sure operator safety and comfort are a priority. Evaluate shocks and vibrations experienced by operators at work. Meet regulations and targets for interior and exterior noise & acoustics. Ensure best possible visibility, reachability, accessibility.
