Factory Engineering Labs
Human labour still is and will be the main component of industrial production. Thus, our labs mainly work on the design of manual workstations and an ergonomic assessment of work processes.
The Factory Engineering Labs are divided into two smaller labs: Set-ups that can be virtually displayed in the Digital Factory Lab can be tested in reality in the Ergonomics Lab.
Digital Factory LabRoom 20.1.08 - Camups Ledward
In the Digital Factory Lab, students should gain an insight into the application of Tecnomatrix modules: Process Designer and Process Simulate from the PLM landscape by Siemens.
With a lab course, students can get a first impression of the range of programme services; with the core elective module (FWPM) Digital Factory, a course with four contact hours per week, students will be able to realise their own project, i.e. building a workstation, simulating the work with a human model and, finally, conducting ergonomic analyses.
Ergonomics LabRoom 20.1.12 - Campus Ledward
Additional to the lecture about factory design and ergonomics, students can gain an insight into the design of workplaces in the context of case studies in the Ergonomics Lab. The emphasis is on experiencing and discovering the effects of ergonomic measures.
Areas of activity
- Holistic design of workplaces
