Augmented Reality for
Smart Process Optimization

Augmented Reality (AR) technology has made significant advancements in recent years and is being increasingly adopted in various industries, including manufacturing plants. AR offers a range of benefits in the manufacturing sector, enhancing efficiency, accuracy, and safety in plant operations.

Augmented Reality in manufacturing plants is the key driver for the Digital Transformation journey.

We offer our expertise and our advanced AR solutions to transition your company into a new digital world, from which you can derive numerous benefits. With our AR solutions, you can optimize the control, management, and efficiency of production lines:

Assembly and Maintenance: Our AR solutions can guide workers through complex assembly processes by overlaying digital instructions and visual cues onto real-world objects. This helps reduce errors and speeds up assembly tasks. Our solutions can also provide real-time maintenance guidance by overlaying instructions, diagrams, or 3D models onto equipment, aiding technicians in troubleshooting and repairs.

Training and Skill Development: Our AR solutions enable interactive and immersive training experiences for plant operators. Trainees can visualize and practice tasks in a virtual environment, simulating real-world scenarios. This allows them to gain hands-on experience without the need for physical equipment, reducing training costs and improving learning outcomes.

Quality Control and Inspection: Our AR solutions can assist in quality control processes by overlaying virtual inspection checklists and guidelines onto physical products. This helps operators identify defects, measure tolerances, and ensure compliance with specifications. Our AR solutions AR can also compare real-world objects against digital models, highlighting discrepancies and facilitating accurate inspections.

Inventory Management and Logistics: Our AR solutions can optimize inventory management by providing real-time data on stock levels, locations, and replenishment requirements. Workers wearing AR-enabled devices can scan barcodes or use image recognition to quickly locate and identify items, improving efficiency and reducing errors in the supply chain.

Workplace Safety: AR can enhance safety in manufacturing plants by overlaying hazard warnings, safety guidelines, and real-time alerts onto the worker's field of view. This helps operators identify potential risks, follow proper safety procedures, and avoid accidents. It is also possible simulate emergency scenarios, training workers to respond effectively in high-stress situations.

Remote Assistance and Collaboration: Our AR solutions enable remote experts to provide real-time guidance and support to on-site workers. Using AR devices, workers can share their point of view, and experts can overlay instructions or annotations onto the live video feed, facilitating troubleshooting, problem-solving, and knowledge transfer across locations.

Increase OEE

Increasing Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a key goal for manufacturing plants.

Increasing Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a key goal for manufacturing plants as it reflects the efficiency and productivity of their equipment. Here are some strategies that can be implemented through our AR solutions to help improve OEE:

Reduce Equipment Downtime: Downtime is a significant contributor to decreased OEE. Identify and address the root causes of downtime, such as equipment breakdowns, changeovers, or maintenance activities. Implement preventive maintenance programs, schedule downtime strategically, and conduct regular equipment inspections to minimize unplanned downtime and maximize equipment availability.

Improve Equipment Performance: Enhancing equipment performance can have a significant impact on OEE. Optimize equipment settings and parameters to maximize output and minimize waste. Regularly calibrate and align equipment to ensure accurate operation. Identify and address performance bottlenecks, such as slow cycles or suboptimal production rates, through process optimization and continuous improvement initiatives.

Streamline Changeovers: Reduce the time required for changeovers between product runs or batches. Standardize changeover procedures, develop visual aids or checklists, and invest in equipment that allows for quick and easy changeovers. The aim is to minimize the nonproductive time during changeovers and increase the time spent on actual production.

Implement Real-time Monitoring and Data Analysis: Utilize MES (Manufacturing Execution System) or other real-time monitoring tools to track and analyze equipment performance metrics. Collect and analyze data on machine utilization, downtime, cycle times, and quality metrics to identify areas for improvement. Real-time monitoring helps detect issues promptly, allowing for immediate action to be taken.

Empower and Operators: Well-trained operators who understand the equipment and processes can significantly contribute to improved OEE. Provide comprehensive training to operators on equipment operation, troubleshooting techniques, and preventive maintenance tasks. Empower them to identify and address minor issues proactively to prevent downtime and optimize equipment performance.

Implement Continuous Improvement Practices: Foster a culture of continuous improvement within the organization. Encourage employees to contribute ideas for process optimization, efficiency enhancements, and waste reduction. Implement Lean manufacturing principles, such as 5S, Kaizen, and value stream mapping, to drive systematic improvements in operations.

Utilize Predictive Maintenance: Implement predictive maintenance strategies by leveraging data analytics and condition monitoring technologies. Predictive maintenance helps anticipate equipment failures and schedule maintenance proactively, reducing unplanned downtime and optimizing maintenance activities.
