Make Assembly Process Validation Real with Virtual Reality

Achieve operational excellence – The bar is high for OEMs as they endeavor to meet ever growing market pressure amid shifting industrial paradigms. Because design sets the stage for manufacturing, it is critical for engineering teams to recognize the interactions of people with their proposed products and processes to assure ease of assembly, operation, and sustained production.

By collaborating virtually in "immersive design reviews", engineering teams can evaluate human-centric product and process interactions. Thereby recognizing potential assembly risks that may arise to adjust the design or procedure, when needed, to prevent issues from escalating during production.

As a result, engineering teams make better informed decisions early and ultimately realize significant reductions in costly late engineering change orders. More importantly, the use of virtual reality during the design review process to conduct Human-Centric Assembly Process Validations can significantly improve on-time delivery, assure repeatable quality, and ultimately improve product profitability.

With Virtual Reality you can

  • Efficiently predict and mitigate human worker considerations in the early phases of production planning
  • Recognize how advanced VR technology with real-time physics, simulated real-world functions, and interactions enables unlimited tryouts with virtual prototypes
  • Identify opportunities to reduce risks and inefficiencies in meeting Start of Production, Ramp-up, and Final Production Targets
  • Efficiently experience, validate and communicate the impact of production process requirements & solution concepts with multi-disciplinary teams, including suppliers
