Work planning with the help of digital tools and the ema Software Suite:
We support you from factory layout and logistics planning to the design of efficient work processes and ergonomic workplaces

Digital work design - ergonomic and productive

Workplace and process design for ergonomics and efficiency

  • 3D simulations for ergonomics and time evaluation by recognized industry standards (MTM®, EAWS®, NIOSH)
  • Prospective concept plausibility and feasibility studies
  • Ability-appropriate work design for older people and people with performance impairments

Ergonomic design of operating equipment and systems

  • Design for optimal ergonomic use for all populations
  • Visibility and feasibility analyses (reachability, accessibility)
  • Biomechanical load assessments with AnyBody™.

Digital factory planning - consistent and efficient

Optimization of production with digital twin

  • Fast mapping of production as a digital twin
  • Plausibility check based on real key figures (including capacity utilization and lead time)
  • Identification of bottlenecks and potential for improvement

3D planning and design of new factories

  • Creation of the digital factory twin based on plan assumptions
  • Optimization of throughput times, costs or areas to ensure optimal material flow and layout
  • Visualization and detailed workplace design in 3D model

Logistics planning - efficient and flexible

Dimensioning and design of bearings

  • Determination of required number of parking spaces depending on safety stocks, transport aids and access/exit rates
  • Selection and evaluation of optimal storage technology on the basis of necessary storage spaces, turnover rates, automation options

Planning and evaluation of intralogistics concepts

  • Analysis of required transport aids and packaging planning
  • Derivation of optimal means of transport depending on number/frequency of transports and distances

Insight into the field

As a support, it is my job to assist customers in using the ema Software Suite. Thereby I help with first steps and technical problems. I also organize info sessions to show the many features and possibilities of ema SWS. In addition, I can support the further development of the software solutions as a support, which I find very exciting. I find positive feedback from our customers particularly motivating.

Support ema Software Suite
I have been working at imk as a planning engineer since 2006. The work tasks assigned to me are very varied and mainly involve planning scopes for industry, both in the conventional way and in the digital environment, for example with the ema software suite. I particularly like the very pleasant, productive and motivating working conditions at imk, especially the collegial and social environment.
