“The simplicity of today’s VR tools benefits suppliers and customers who have been reluctant to use more complex solutions.” (Richard Clemens, VDMA)
Karlsruhe/Frankfurt – The planning and implementation of new production facilities and processes are becoming increasingly complex. The responsible employees at plant suppliers and on the side of the users are therefore under ever-increasing pressure to make decisions and to meet deadlines, from conception and release to installation and commissioning. In particular, this increases the risk of planning errors: there is a risk of high additional costs for reworking and production delays up to costly and image-damaging recall actions. A practicable solution for early error avoidance and better planning offers low-cost Virtual Reality (VR) technology from the consumer sector. For just a few thousand euros a year, any manufacturer or operator of food processing and packaging machines can start using VR and make better use of expert knowledge.
Managing Director of VDMA’s Food Processing and Packaging Machinery Association: “Augmented and Virtual Reality offer great opportunities for the mechanical engineering industry. But new technologies repeatedly fail because they are perceived as too complicated in operational reality. The simplicity of today’s VR tools benefits suppliers and customers who have been reluctant to use more complex solutions. This also enables the early involvement of different experts in the design process”.
