The assembly planning of a new vehicle begins years before the start of production with the formation of the assembly sequence. Each work process, each installation space represents the work to be performed on each derivative on the assembly line.
3D software is increasingly being used to consider and evaluate alternatives in the early stages of product and process planning. At this early stage errors can be detected and design changes can be applied at very low cost. During later stages of the product planning or physical prototypes minor changes will lead to very high costs and time consumption.
The digital human model IPS IMMA and the path planning solution are digital tools to support the design of ergonomic products and humane work systems. They can make a significant contribution to the early recognition and correction of planning errors, especially in complex products and processes.
