Project ID: 211548
Funded under: FP7-NMP

Abstract

This is the periodic report for 'Manual work support throughout system lifecycle by exploiting virtual and augmented reality (ManuVAR). The ManuVAR objective is to provide a systematic technological and methodological system to support high knowledge high value manual work throughout the product lifecycle. It combines the best potential of the lean and agile models with the knowledge and skill management in the product LC. The ultimate goal of ManuVAR is to go 'beyond lean manufacturing'.

This report outlines the main results achieved so far including identifying the seven most prominent problem areas faced by European industries in the context of high knowledge high value manual work as well as creating a definition of the Virtual Model (VM), ManuVAR PLM model, application methodology, system architecture, ergonomics methods and software/hardware tools for integrating VR/AR application tools (AT) as an interface to the VM and ATs.
