Time management, work efficiency, and workplace safety are important issues that the manufacturing industry has been dealing with for decades. The cost of stopping an assembly line or experiencing delivery delays amount to millions of dollars per year. How can we avoid or lower the probability of these scenarios from happening?
Simulating scenarios in the digital world has been the go-to solution to predict and avoid problems before they occur. Adding components to that simulation to have a digital representation of the entire production process gives process planners and design engineers the necessary tools to make better decisions by simulating different scenarios without incrementing costs.
Process planners must consider assessing the human workforce factor when deciding which process sequence will best fit the production requirements. By simulating work processes, we can evaluate process efficiency, worker's safety, and choose the scenario that would suit production and business needs better. Virtual human simulators are not only centered in simulating manufacturing work sequences but also in the design, process planning, and health and safety departments. Every department can have a different use of virtual humans but will have a common goal, how can we increase efficiency, lower, or maintain costs, and increase productivity?
Simulating believable virtual humans performing real tasks is something that has not been done with the accuracy that Anomotion is capable of. Anomotion's Motion Composer™ for Unreal Engine™ is a simulation tool for rapid simulation and iteration of human-centric tasks in physical environments.
Using virtual humans helps to tell a cohesive story. There is a piece of the puzzle that is missing when not considering simulating workers. Incorporating virtual humans in the process planning stage will allow process planners and design engineers to measure space constraints, safety requirements, performance issues, human-machine interaction, and plan different scenarios in a short time.
Motion Composer™ is built for process planners and design engineers who want to speed up process design iterations when developing physical assembly lines or building complex process plans.
When simulating process plans, having a Digital Twin will help in getting a comprehensive view of the production process, allowing users to evaluate processes with reliable metrics to make accurate and confident decisions when implementing solutions in the real world.
Manufacturing companies are interested in being able to:
Motion composer has a user-friendly interface that allows users to set up a process in minutes*. It is an easy-to-use virtual human simulation tool that can be used by users with different professional backgrounds. There is no need for coding knowledge.
Process planners and design engineers will be able to plan process sequences visually, compare different assembly lines, evaluate, and rapidly implement changes, saving time and resources by identifying improvements before being implemented on the line.
Showcase simulation projects to team members or stakeholders to evaluate projects collaboratively. They will be able to easily understand what the process plan entails and make faster decisions by visualizing the process execution in detail.
