Collaborative robotics at the service of business digitalization and staff training
As part of its digital transformation, Deutsche Bahn wanted to extend access to cutting-edge technology within its organization for the purpose of training, but also maintaining skills. Training centers thus benefit from complete ecosystems, at the service of apprentices and experienced technicians.
The process in a nutshell:
Theoretical awareness and knowledge are first provided.
Apprentices and technicians freely manipulate the elements of the ecosystem
Exercises are then proposed in real conditions.
In DB’s own words:
Why did Deutsche Bahn choose collaborative robotics?
- The accessibility of the robot, the latter being manipulated by different people from various backgrounds.
- The cost of the robot, allowing centers to equip themselves with complete fleets.
- The capabilities of the robot, allowing the implementation of many scenarios.
Digital transformation interests us from a business point of view, but it is also important to us in the field of professional training because it raises awareness of lean methods (…) We take advantage of the intelligence of the robot ecosystem.
