Shop floor Augmented Realityand Industry 4.0

Critical Manufacturing Augmented Reality (AR) plays an important role in reaching Industry 4.0 goals by boosting the efficiency and reliability of your manufacturing operations. Augmented Reality enables employees to quickly view manufacturing relevant information to see exactly what needs to be done and how to complete the task, supporting even less experienced staff in flawless execution. By taking advantage of the camera available in any handheld device, real-time information from any MES object present in the system can be viewed over a live shot, whether it is an equipment, a lot, a device or a carrier.

Instantly view the current status and important contextual information for any batch, lot or device on the shop floor such as product, quantity or customer. Gain access to complete traceability records including process history, scrap information, process and inspection data and much more.

Seize the benefits of Augmented Reality

AR presents unlimited opportunities to improve performance and efficiency of the production process with a simple, intuitive and easy to use interface:

Time savings

Simplify complex assembly operations by allowing workers constant access to detailed instructions and schematics to avoid errors and speed production.

Improved logistics

Free production workers from being tethered to fixed workstations and paper-based systems.

Up-to-date results

Speed-up maintenance operations by allowing staff to see exactly what equipment needs servicing, or any potential issues. Technicians no longer need to access manuals and can also view operation times, date of last service and potential points of failure.

Process efficiency

Enhance flexibility and accelerate skills development and cross training across the shop floor by allowing less skilled workers to perform more difficult jobs or a greater variety of tasks.

Paperless

Reduce paper across the shop floor by presenting up-to-date clear digital information to production operators and supervisors.

Speed up operations

Streamline materials, order and warehouse management and speed production by eliminating manual tasks associated with finding products, WIP and goods.

Quality satisfaction

Improve Quality Assurance by ensuring that the right parts and assembly steps are followed, while identifying issues faster and guiding their resolution with greater accuracy.

Low barrier to entry

With Critical Manufacturing Augmented Reality, you can seize the benefits with minimal investment by using readily available devices such as smartphones and tablets. With little or no training required, workers can benefit from hands-free information and further improve efficiency.
