Today’s industrial workforce is changing in real-time – who shows up, what their skills are, what jobs they need to do, is a constantly moving target. The traditional “one size fits all” approach to training, guidance, and performance support is fundamentally incapable of enabling today’s workers to function at their individual peak of safety, quality and productivity.

Watch the recording of our recent virtual roundtable of industry leaders as they discussed proven approaches to delivering performance support and modern training approaches for today’s industrial workforce.

How AI is Transforming Lean Manufacturing for Industry 4.0

Join Russ Fadel, CEO at Augmentir, and Conor Puckett, Operations Manager at Bio-Chem Fluidics as they discuss how AI and Connected Worker Technology is optimizing overall worker effectiveness and transforming the factory of the future.

Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) has long been used in lean manufacturing to measure the effectiveness of factory equipment, yet many manufactures still ignore the human component of a lean strategy. Only considering OEE while ignoring worker effectiveness is a missed opportunity, and while measuring worker/labor effectiveness is not a new concept, the emergence of digital technology is now making it easier and more practical to connect the manufacturing workforce with the right support tools and real-time data and insights to help them do their best work.

Manufacturers are now starting to leverage digital tools to improve worker safety, quality, and productivity. The combination of digital work instructions and real-time support for workers not only provides a complete Worker support solution, but also helps operations managers better understand utilization and efficiency of workforce and identify opportunities for improvement.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn how to extend the principles of OEE to the manufacturing workforce
  • Hear proven approaches that leverage AI and connected worker technology to digitize manufacturing processes and uncover opportunities for improved worker efficiency and effectiveness
  • Discover best practices for optimizing worker performance and enhancing workforce development programs
  • Hear from Bio-Chem Fluidics, an industrial equipment manufacturer, on how they are using AI and digital worker tools to improve quality and productivity within their manufacturing operations

The COVID-19 pandemic was a wake up call for manufacturers – forcing them to rapidly enable remote work for much of their workforce.

And while most manufacturers had a digital roadmap in place that included virtual shifts, manufacturers are now having to step up their progress and rapidly accelerate automation if they want to survive future disruptions. Investment in technologies such as robotics, terminal access, VR and remote monitoring and collaboration systems is expected to soar in 2022.

Join over 500 manufacturing leaders online on February 16, 2022 and hear from global manufacturing trailblazers how to:

  • Redesign manufacturing production for remote work: automating low value production activities
  • Identify what skills translate the best to scalable remote work: Who must work inside the factory, and what jobs should be performed remotely?
  • Use remote monitoring dashboards to track production performance and make recommendations from afar
  • Effectively monitor machine health and performance without being onsite
  • Enable onsite teams to become more autonomous
  • Build the business case and make the “Virtual Shift” a reality
  • Identify what is needed in terms of network infrastructure, data collection, analytics and remote collaboration tools
  • Scale “scarce skillsets”: Leverage experts such as reliability, engineering and quality across multiple factories

 

During this online event, don’t miss Chris Kuntz, VP of Strategic Operations for Augmentir with the following session:

 

The Flexible Workforce of the Future, Powered by AI

9.45am EST | 2:45pm GMT

The manufacturing workforce is changing rapidly – shorter tenure rates, workplace unpredictability, and remote work are forcing manufacturing leaders to re-think traditional training, guidance, and on-the-job support. In this session, learn how AI and connected worker technology are helping connect and support the future manufacturing workforce and improve operational agility.

For equipment manufacturers, the traditional approach to installing, maintaining, and servicing their equipment has become increasingly challenging due to the current travel limitations and changing nature of work during COVID-19. In this webinar, join Augmentir in a discussion on how industrial OEMs are using AI-powered Connected Worker technology to transform how they service and support their customers and ensure field service continuity during this unprecedented time.

Whether you have your own service force or work through a dealer network, learn how Augmentir’s Connected Worker software platform is being used to:

  • Enable your customers and 3rd party service companies to install, maintain, and repair equipment using easy to understand Augmented Guided Instructions
  • Provide remote and virtual support through integrated Remote Assist collaboration tools
  • Use AI-driven “True Opportunities” to shed light on inefficiencies and service, repair, maintenance process improvement opportunities within your direct service force, dealer networks, and customers

Hear from Russ Fadel, CEO and Co-Founder of Augmentir on how Augmentir’s Connected Worker platform is using AI to ensure equipment manufacturers are continually support their customers and operating at their best.

It’s no secret that more and more processes on the manufacturing floor are becoming digitized and connected. Yet what is often times left out of the Digital Transformation / Industry 4.0 discussion are the people – the human workers that make up a critical and integral part of the manufacturing equation.

Augmentir recently presented to dozens of manufacturing companies along with the CPMT (Center of Powder Metallurgy Technology) at a virtual meeting on Nov 5, 2020, and introduced the audience to the increasing need and value of digitizing their front-line workforce, enhancing SOP’s and leveraging an Artificial Intelligence based connected worker solution.

This webcast is a recording of that presentation, and provides insight into how emerging technologies are changing the way we compete and operate in the manufacturing sector, and how now, more than ever, manufacturing companies are turning to digital technology to help guide and assist their workforces – helping them operate at peak levels of safety, quality, and productivity during this global pandemic.

This webcast will focus on 2 key technologies that are shaping the future manufacturing workforce – Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence, and will discuss why now is the time to consider these and start digitizing and connecting your frontline workforce.  These technologies are proving to be practical and effective ways to close skill gaps and transform training efforts – allowing your frontline workers to work safely and efficiently in today’s new normal

This webcast will cover topics that include:

  • The changing nature of work, and specifically how the global pandemic is not only changing how we manufacture and machine parts, but also changing everything we do.
  • Use cases on how digital technology is helping during these times
  • Share proven strategies and best practices on getting started
  • And highlight a few manufacturing companies who are embracing and leading with these technologies today
