XR for factory design & prod., sustainability perspectives.

#Title : XR for factory design and production, sustainability perspectives and measures
This talk made in October 30th , 2020 has been given during the International Congress of Extended Reality in Sciences (https://dimensionsxr.com) organized by the Swiss Society of Virtual and Augmented Reality (SSVAR – https://ssvar.ch)
Professor Björn Johansson (Chair Sustainable Production) performs research on sustainability aspects using virtual tools to analyze and improve production systems for industries. The goal is to create and improve production system performance in order to strive towards a more sustainable future in terms of less environmental impact, socially sound workplaces as well as a healthy economy. The results from the research aims at facilitating use of methodologies and tools for engineers to use while analyzing and creating production systems. Example of application areas are:

Simulation of complete product lifecycles.
Dynamic analysis for evaluation of environmental aspects of production systems.
Realistic 3D animation of production equipment, facilities and environment.
Layout planning, scheduling, balancing etc.

The talk will showcase and explain the actual benefits and setbacks from recent research on utilizing e.g. 3D Imaging and AV/VR solutions applied on layout planning, production flow balancing and operator training for creating sustainable production systems. Recent development in research and implementation in industries is shared. A perspective on how information sharing and reduction of travel is influencing global warming and social aspects of persons involved in both factory design and production using the developed XR solutions.
