What's it about?

for everyone.

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.
