Imagine replicating a work cell just for training purposes entirely in the digital domain.
Put on the headset, earphones, grab the controllers and you are immersed in 3-D representation of your work cell.
Walk around freely with full 360 degree movement, grab and place objects, use tools such as a drill driver and feel the vibration and hear the sounds when you squeeze the trigger. The immersive feeling is so real that sometimes users drop the controllers thinking they are placing them on objects in the 3-D space.
Hear the sounds of your plant in the background, get similar responses to activities such as beeps and updates on screens that take place within your work cell. Watch the takt time come down as trainees get hands on experience using the proper sequence of operations. Improve quality by building in poka-yoke mechanisms into the simulation.
Virtual reality is an artificial environment that is created with software and presented to the user in such a way that the user suspends belief and accepts it as a real environment.
Created to individual plant requirements:
- Uses 3D CAD files to replicate work area
- Activities simulated in required sequence
- Simulates feedback with sounds and visual cues
- Can include tactile feedback such as vibration
- Keeps up with cycle time
