Layout Planning and Geometry Analysis Using 3D Laser Scanning in Production System Redesign
Paper in proceedings, 2016

Production system layouts are traditionally redesigned and modelled using CAD tools. Frequent system changes, i.e. equipment is replaced or moved to new locations, necessitate time-consuming measurement and modelling work to keep the models valid and up-to-date. 3D imaging has been proposed as a means for rapid and accurate spatial modelling by digitalising real world objects. This paper analyses the method and result from five industrial studies where 3D imaging, specifically 3D laser scanning, were used to support layout planning and geometry analysis of production systems. The results show promise to reduce time, risks, and cost when redesigning production systems.
