SERVICEABILITY ANALYSES IN VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT FOR THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

Abstract

The paper describes an industrial application of VR techniques in the field of Digital Mock-Up (DMU) analyses, reporting the results obtained with the development of a software application that allows Elasis engineers to evaluate important design parameters in the serviceability studies. These analyses can be conducted during the early stages of the design process using DMUs and finding the difficulties related to the serviceability tasks. Using VR techniques it is possible to simulate the entire operative context in which the human operator works during the assembly/disassembly task. In this way a designer can directly verify some potential difficulties in component reachability, in posture and visibility.
