Human Simulation, 3D Production Planning and Virtual Ergonomics with ema Work Designer Software

The scientifically based software emaWD enables the holistic planningevaluation and 3D simulation of human work in the context of the Digital Factory in order to simulate punctual safeguards or complex continuous production scenarios with human participation.


With the digital human model and the behavior and process editor, workstations and production processes can be designed in detail, manual activities and hrc system sequences can be visualized. In addition to that complete manufacturing and assembly processes can be simulated in 3D. In combination with integrated functions for analysis and evaluation of time as well as ergonomics in relation to standard performance, valid and plausible planning results are created for secured processes.
