Car manufacturer focuses on ergonomics

JST - BMW plant Dingolfing: central energy control centre. View from the control centre into the factory halls

JST solutions: Since the screens behind the worktop are lowered by ten centimetres, an unobstructed view of the hall is possible. It also lowers the line of sight from the horizontal by 35° and ensures a relaxed head tilt (recommendation of the professional association for administrative staff).

The specialists from Jungmann Systemtechnik at BMW’s Dingolfing plant have overcome an extraordinary challenge. The central energy control center of the plant was to be rebuilt while the plant was in operation. “We were able to complete this special task to the satisfaction of all involved”, Christian Beck, Head of Technics of the JST team, sums up.

In accordance with customer requirements, Jungmann employees equipped the Bavarian car manufacturer’s control center with operator desks from the StratosX11 furniture system, which was specially developed for control rooms. Those responsible at BMW AG were particularly concerned with workplace ergonomics for the employees in the control center, which is manned around the clock.

In order to meet these requirements, special tables were installed in Dingolfing which can be moved continuously and by electric motor to the optimum sitting or standing position. These Stratos X11 tables meet the highest requirements in terms of technical installations, ergonomics, stability and durability.
