"Thanks to the excellent cooperation with Phoenix Mecano, we were able to develop and implement effective solutions. The working environment and ergonomics of the workstations were significantly improved and optimized."

step one

Initial situation

The internationally active Swiss company Pilatus Aircraft Ltd is known for its globally unique aircraft such as training and smaller multi-purpose aircraft. Various wiring harnesses are required for the different aircraft, which differ greatly in terms of design, such as length and shape. Depending on the design of the wiring harness, simple tables were lined up in the required shape and fitted with the appropriate boards. Although this method worked in principle, it made it difficult to work comfortably and safely. On the one hand, you bump into the table legs when working and on the other hand, a comfortable, ergonomic posture is not possible. In addition, positioning the tables is awkward and time-consuming.

step two


Pilatus' aim was to obtain a workstation system that would increase ergonomics and safety for employees, while at the same time being modular and flexibly adaptable and expandable at any time. The changeover time for the tables and boards for installing the various wiring harnesses was also to be shortened and simplified. No more than two employees should be required to convert the large work surfaces.
