Description of the company
Lufthansa Technik is a global leader in maintenance, repair and overhaul services as well as modifications in the civil aviation industry. With tailor-made maintenance programs and the most advanced repair procedures, we ensure the reliability and availability of our customers' aircraft.
We are independent of aircraft manufacturers and are internationally licensed as a repair, manufacturing and development company. With more than 26,000 employees and over 30 international subsidiaries, the Lufthansa Technik Group offers a complete service to around 800 customers around the world in its Maintenance, Overhaul, Equipment, Engines, Chassis, VIP Services, Innovation and Digital Fleet Solutions business units around aircraft technology.
The project is provided and supervised by the IT department "Application Services PLM, CAx and xR Solutions”. The department is responsible for the development and support of integrated IT solutions for engineering collaboration throughout the LHT group including infrastructure for AR/VR based training.
Lufthansa Technik has started several initiatives to introduce or test AR and VR based applications. Currently the activities have a focus on VR based training scenarios and support of shopfloor processes.
The project should help to foster synergies in regard of managing and re-using 3D assets for use cases in training, marketing, BIM and shopfloor support.
For the asset management of VR and AR capable 3D models, special requirements exist. Those are not fulfilled by any data management system currently in use at LHT. Discussions in VR industry roundtables showed that the lack of such kind of asset management system is a common problem today.
Traditional PLM systems are specialized to manage CAD data but cannot create or manage VR ready models derived from this data out of the box.
A feature rich asset management solution for AR/VR ready models shall be designed and at least partially implemented. Target audiences are AR/VR developers and training editors working with Unity.
The project team implements the development as an independent agile team with the support of the supervising department. The LHT employed product owner will act as a focal point.
Planned features are:
Implementation has to be done according to LHT standards
Target group (students)
For this project we are looking for students specializing in computer science or engineering, who are passionate about application of AR and VR in an industrial context. In addition to a structured way of working, the willingness to work in an agile team and a DevOps approach is necessary
