Through the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, ergonomics specialists are delivered a groundbreaking user experience in ergonomics.

WORK SAFETY ENGINEER

Work Safety Engineer creates lifelike manikins and places them into 3D models.

Work Safety Engineer delivers the ability to create lifelike manikins with standard anthropometry. Manikins can be placed into a 3D model to evaluate human interaction with a product or workplace. Defi ning common tasks is simple using predefi ned actions such as picking up and placing objects, walking, operating a device or using a tool. The 3DEXPERIENCE® platform makes a wide range of manipulation and analysis tools accessible to all stakeholders.

 

Save costs by early integration of human factors in product or workplace design- 

Users can easily place a lifelike manikin in an immersive environment. Non-experts in ergonomics for product and workplace design can easily see how humans will perform in a manufacturing context. Product and workplace designers can perform ergonomics-related validation early in the design phase to avoid costly changes later.

 

Reduce risk of injury- 

Designers can avert injuries in the workplace through early identifi cation of potential ergonomics-related problems.

 

Capture and re-use ergonomic enterprise standards-

A customized manikin, including its attributes and skills, can be saved for use in future evaluation scenarios. This saves time and effort for downstream users while capturing company know-how.

 

 

Switch target populations without updating tasks-

A manikin from one population can be taught a series of motion postures. After the analysis for that manikin is complete, the user can easily switch to a manikin from a different population without needing to update the taught tasks.

 

Role Highlights-

• Groundbreaking 3DEXPERIENCE platform

• Task sequencing for multiple humans, robots and devices

• Simplifi ed teaching of common actions

• Time management from task level to motion elements

• Push, pull and carry analysis

• Lifting and lowering analysis

• Rapid upper limb assessment

• Manikin vision assessment

PROCESS PLANNING
design, validate and document your processes 

Process Planning helps create and optimize build-to-order and lean production manufacturing systems. Manufacturing Engineers and Project Managers can accelerate new product and variant introduction planning, reduce product and resource physical prototypes with 4D simulation, and maximize space and resource utilization to increase factory performance and safety. Through the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, a groundbreaking user experience in Process Planning is delivered. Process Planning helps users to simulate, validate and effectively plan essential manufacturing capabilities for all industries and resources.

WORK INSTRUCTION DESIGNER

Work Instruction Designer has powerful, easy-to-use features for faster, higher quality work instruction authoring.

Work Instruction Designer details and documents any process, from simple assembly prototyping to complex manufacturing. Textual instructions and 3D annotations can easily be created to describe a job and how to do it. Text can be complemented by other electronic documents and images. Best practices for process execution instructions can be captured and stored in a catalog for use by other authors. This allows enterprises to create and implement standards for the way their products are manufactured and assembled.

Better work instruction quality-

The collaborative environment gives access to configuration and lifecycle-managed product, process and resource data. Users work with the most up-to-date information as they create or update work instructions.

 

Configured work instructions that support complex product and process scenarios-

Configured work instructions provide support for product and process variants. This is essential across virtually all industries, providing users with the ability to document all product models and variants.

 

Reduced effort and better quality for work instruction authoring-

A single-source toolset is provided to give users access to relevant data in 3D. They can author text, copy work instructions from a catalog, capture images, attach documents and publish work instructions in an HTML format. The collaborative environment provides access to configuration and lifecyclemanaged product, process and resource data.

Collaboration in 3D- 

Authors can exchange information with product designers and manufacturing planners on a real-time basis, to ensure that work instructions are properly refl ected in the manufacturing process plan.

 

Creation of 3D dress-up-

Users can defi ne 3D format work instructions for operations. In captured views, they have the capability to set annotations, measurements, and cut sections on the manufactured parts and resources, in order to document the work instructions in 3D.

Role Highlights

• Groundbreaking 3DEXPERIENCE® platform

• Create detailed operations with work instructions

• Enrich instructions with documents

• Author work instructions based on a confi gured engineering and manufacturing dataset

INDUSTRIAL ENGINEER

Industrial Engineer delivers the ability to define and validate the behavior of a station, line or complete plant.

Industrial Engineer, based on the 3D EXPERIENCE® platform, allows systems to be visualized in 3D as they are being designed. The performance of production systems can be assessed and fine-tuned while feasibility and performance studies are conducted. Bottlenecks are identified early in the planning process which helps to maximize production rates by implementing alternate routing.

Material and resources flow design in a realistic 3D environment-

Engineers can design factory layouts by defining, simulating and analyzing multiple production scenarios in a realistic 3D environment. They can do this with or without the availability of planning data.
