What's it about?
FactoryVR was developed by Prof. Dr. Torbjørn H. Netland and his staff at the Chair of Production and Operations Management (POM) at ETH Zurich. It is used to teach operations management with a high level of immersion. Students virtually visit real factories in different countries to solve concrete tasks aimed at improving productivity. Following CaseVR, the predecessor project from 2017, FactoryVR marks the beginning of a new era of teaching at ETH Zurich and abroad.
We work with academic as well as industry partners to ensure high-quality VR content for our students. Our industry partners incorporate FactoryVR into their inhouse training routine. This way we foster immersive learning experiences in both education and working environments.
The New Kind of Field Trip.
Effortless. And Affordable.
Awards and Funding
