Operation and maintenance, working conditions
Vehicles must be easy to operate and they should be adapted to human behaviour. The driver should be free to concentrate on operating the vehicle and on observing the surroundings. The operation must not distract the driver’s attention from the task at hand. Low noise and vibration levels, the correct temperature and clean air all make it easier for the operator to concentrate on the task of operating the vehicle as well as increase passenger comfort. Safety and security are increased by easy operability, correct situational awareness and a pleasant environment.
We offer advanced and cost-effective working concepts for the planning of human–technology interaction, including computer-assisted ergonomic analyses, virtual prototyping and environments, and digital human models.
Our versatile measuring technologies, theoretical know-know and strong experience form a good basis for the development and measurement of cabin ventilation and filter properties. This ensures high-quality service.
We offer development services to reduce body and hand vibration. These services combine the latest research data and empirical experience with absorption system optimisation, component selection and working environment analysis. We also offer tools and competence for controlling exposure to vibration to meet the requirements of legislation in a work place.
Services are becoming an increasingly important part of the machine and vehicle industry. In addition to machine sales, services such as maintenance are sold for the machine’s entire lifecycle. Providing profitable services requires strong technology and business knowledge as well as know-how in analysing the technical systems and service processes.
VTT supports the development of our clients’ maintenance service business by means of extensive methodology and technology expertise. The expertise can be applied to the following development steps in the lifecycle business:
development of business processes
development of service processes and the enabling technology
product development and management of the product characteristics
The implementation of maintenance services often requires development of measurements and data analysis techniques. VTT develops technologies and methods for condition monitoring, diagnostics, prognostics and data transfer, for applications in every phase of the product lifetime. In this way, we support the development of our clients’ service business all the way from measurements to data management.
