Human motion simulation with ergonomics evaluation

Master thesis proposal


Virtual Manufacturing is a supplier of lean-based production development services. We believe in and are willing to take on the challenge of combining technology, methods and hard work around production development in order to achieve results.


Problem description

Ergonomics in within assembly is always in need of improvement. Simulation has been used for a long time to analyse production flow and can also be used for ergonomics. IPS IMMA is a simulation tool that can be used to analyse ergonomics. Nexonar is a tracking tool that can be used to track human motion.


Research question 1: How would IPS IMMA and Nexonar transfer data in real time with each other?

Research question 2: How can simulation of ergonomics and tracking of motions in combination increase quality of assembly processes?
