The article is aimed at verifying the state of a real workplace using virtual reality. In analyzing the readiness of virtual reality applications,augmented reality was selected for the following work. The most significant advantage of augmented reality is the implementation of a virtual model and the ability to deal with the analysis in a real environment, which is particularly beneficial in the case of productionplants. In the first phase of the work,an analysis of the current state of the workplace was carried out, where the requirements for the design of the new workplace were specified. This was followed by the phase of design preparation in 3D modeller. At this very stage it appeared to be advantageous to use virtual reality applications; in the design process,regular approval procedures are requiredas for an expert team (management, design, quality, ...), which puts high qualification requirements on the readiness of this team. In this phase, the 3D design of the new workplace was inserted into the application supported by augmented reality and some options were indicatedto deal with the ergonomic and risk analysis. The result of this work is, in particular,an extension of options in designing and analyzing production workplaces and machinery in multidisciplinary teams.
