Deceuninck helps build sustainable homes through innovative solutions with a low ecological footprint to contribute to a more energy-efficient home.
Deceuninck is one of the top 3 players in its sector, a position they obtained through 80 years of teamwork. During the last decades, they expanded their reach and today they are active in more than 91 countries across Europe, North & South America, Oceania and Asia.
Why is this VR tool needed?
Deceuninck wanted to invest in the development of a virtual training module for the extrusion division. The aim of this tool is to offer their employees technical basic training and allowing them to learn the different steps in a process while paying attention to all the required parameters.
What are the advantages?
The decision to implement a VR-training tool was made for these reasons:
- Reduce the training time on the work floor
- Standardisation (make sure everyone gets the same explanation)
- Implement different learning tools (audio, visual, pragmatic)
- Unlimited practice, independent of production planning
- Avoid producing scrap (bad profiles)
- Different language settings for the audio guide
Rhinox worked together with Carl Boel on this project, a VR-learning expert. He made sure the different technical skills were translated correctly to a learning module, based on scientific insights.
The VR module is expected to go live in June 2021. Until then there will be different sprint tests by a variety of employees to get an in-app situation that is as close as possible to the real working conditions. You can check this video to get a quick glimpse of what is already available.
