 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'Manual work is a crucial and expensive component of manufacturing. Globalization causes companies to reduce manual work costs by offshoring and global outsourcing. This poses problems such as increased lead times, lower quality products and services, and weaker management. Because of the pressure of globalization and the decline of the working age population in Europe, the situation will get worse in sectors with a large proportion of high value manual work that cannot be automated or outsourced. The ManuVAR project aims to provide a timely and systematic solution to this problem. The objective of ManuVAR is to develop an innovative technology platform and a framework to support high value manual work throughout the product lifecycle. ManuVAR will cover ergonomics, safety, work assistance, and training. It includes various people from designers to factory workers, operators, maintenance personnel, and end-users. The aims of ManuVAR are to: (1) increase productivity and quality, reducing the cost of high value manual work at every stage of the lifecycle; (2) facilitate adaptation to product customization and changes; (3) support efficient knowledge and skill management; (4) improve EU industry competitiveness via knowledge-based business models. This will be achieved by employing virtual reality technology to facilitate communication between people and systems. It will also enable the two-way flow of knowledge and its accumulation and reuse throughout the entire lifecycle and across subsequent system generations. The consortium comprises 18 partners representing industry, research and academia. In ManuVAR, there are five synergistic application clusters in different industrial areas: terrestrial satellite assembly, assembly line design, remote maintenance of trains, maintenance of nuclear reactors, large machine assembly process design. ManuVAR will demonstrate that high value, high knowledge manual work is an opportunity to improve the competitiveness of EU industries.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Changing the way Europe works can help its industry remain competitive in a globally challenging environment. An EU-funded project is developing a new approach to improving industry's manufacturing processes and methods.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Manual work is a crucial but expensive component of manufacturing. The expense can often result in companies reducing manual work costs by offshore and global outsourcing. This poses problems such as increased lead time between initiation and execution, lower quality products and services, and weaker management.

Globalisation and a reduced working-age population in Europe will make matters worse in sectors with a large proportion of high-value manual work that cannot be automated or outsourced. The EU-funded 'Manual work support throughout system lifecycle by exploiting virtual and augmented reality' (Manuvar) project aims to provide a solution to this problem.

Manuvar is concentrating on adapting existing virtual and augmented reality (VR / AR) technology to enhance communications between people and systems. This approach will improve ergonomics, safety, work assistance and training in the manufacturing and service industries. The overall objective is to demonstrate that high-value, high-knowledge manual work presents an opportunity to improve the competitiveness of EU industries.

Manuvar's technological and methodological system has been designed, implemented and tested under laboratory conditions, and demonstrated on the factory floor. So far, it has inspired improvements in a number of prominent problem areas. Communication throughout the process life-cycle has been enhanced, as have user interfaces. Design processes have become more flexible and knowledge management more efficient. Productivity has increased and the acceptance of technology among staff has improved. There are also signs of less physical and cognitive stress among workers.

The Manuvar team will continue to fine-tune the technology and methodology with the objective of rolling out the system for widespread use in European industrial sectors.
