University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hannover

“Herbar Digital” (digital herbarium) is the name of one of the more unusual projects conducted by the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Hannover (FHH). It involves creating a photo-realistic digital representation of herbarium pressings (pressed and dried
plants or plant parts) so that botanical institutes and museums around the world can access them. The University uses DELMIA Version 6 to calculate and simulate the entire process, including ergonomic analysis.

The Challenge

To simulate the process for cost-effectively digitally capturing and documenting a vast number of pressed plants.

Dassault Systèmes Response

The University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Hannover uses DELMIA V6 for Academia to calculate and simulate the entire process, including ergonomic analysis.

Benefits

Process modeling with DELMIA makes it possible to test process feasibility and workflows, as well as understand what workers are likely to experience during the actual digitization process.
