Virtual Reality

Tomorrow’s production has to meet high standards. Efficiency and a safe future are as important for plant construction as cost savings and error reduction during the planning phase. The fourth industry revolution starts today with Industry 4.0. To meet these demands an investment in new technology is necessary. 
A technology that has the potential to give a positive impulse to plant construction in general and to the glass industry in particular. Precision and efficiency are indispensable from the start of a project, well before a glass plant is put into operation. In order to meet these requirements, GmbH invests in the application of Virtual Reality (VR) and uses the possibilities of this technology regarding an efficient and future guaranteed layout planning for the glass industry.


Evolution of layout planning
When constructing a new glass plant, the investment is very high and each plant is unique and has to fit to the local and technical requirements of the site. The layout of a glass plant determines plant components, access, machines and equipment for years to come. A thorough layout is particularly important. VR is by no means a replacement for 2D and 3D planning, instead it has to be seen as an expansion of, and in addition to, existing planning steps towards an intelligent layout.

Simulation of future events
In a virtual model, future works processes such as production or maintenance can be simulated. The staff can adapt and be trained virtually for their new work place. During the planning, process adjustments and changes can be made in the model to create a well thought-out layout concept which is submitted to virtual testing in all aspects. Only if the planned factory has passed the practical test is it ready for the real execution.

“Quality is improved and unplanned additional costs are reduced”

Minimal costs and errors
The more complicated a factory is and the more parties involved in the process, the more errors are likely to occur. Where multiple interfaces exist, errors are unavoidable. VR helps to locate and minimize errors at an early stage. It can detect weak spots in 3D models during layout planning. Inconveniently positioned equipment, pipes, instruments or valves that are hard to reach.

“VR involves the whole project team and the planning process profits from the cross exchange of experiences” 

cmp SPEED Programm

The cmp SPEED Program was developed to achieve better results after the start up of the factory. That means:

Start up support, which will guide the customer during the critical time after the acceptance of the factory, to reach the estimated operational Key performance indicators (KPI´s) in a very short time.

Performance, as main driver of all doings during that period of time, integration of standardized reports, meeting culture and driving the new team to results.

Education, often the trainings which are done during the cold test and hot test phase are not enough and we will do an ongoing education of the new team during the production, meaning training on the job.

Efficiency, as a result of the support the efficiency is visible in the economy as well as the team performance of the new factory. Unforeseen break down and interruptions are significantly reduced or eliminated.

Development, beside all daily doings one main focus is important and one of the main success factors for the future: to start as soon as possible with developments and improvements in the main areas like employees, energy costs, new products or better products and less consumption.
