Some providers claim that their customers have already taken advantage of the potential of Virtual (VR) or Augmented Reality (AR) for their production. But is VR / AR truly applied in the manufacturing industry? Can the combination with knowledge management and game techniques make a difference?
Initially developed for gaming and entertainment, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are gaining traction in the manufacturing industry. And indeed and if combined with clever knowledge management this technology has the power to improve safety and increase productivity. Practical examples range from streamlined inspections and maintenance, access to expertise and documentation, training and learning, inventory management and assembly, in form of digital guidance or remote assistance. Once combined with game techniques it can become a game changer when it comes to users productivity, motivation and profitability.
