INTEGRATION OF MANUAL WORK RELATED INFORMATION TO PLM
Virtual environments (VE) are seen as potential means for improving efficiency of product process, and decreasing amount of spent time, and money. VE has also proved to provide effective product development, and analysis tools. However, adopting a VE to a company’s product processes and PDM/PLM is a challenge. This paper aimed to propose how manual work design supported by novel VE can be integrated into company product process and PLM. The proposed procedure enable better information flow between product lifecycle stages, e.g. feedback from a maintenance worker to design engineers.
