The automotive industry is ever-changing, and today’s automotive OEMs are constantly facing new challenges stemming from customers, asking the question, “What new innovation you can show us”?
For those in the automotive world disruptive technology of various type and magnitude have immediate influence on the robust processes already in place. AR may serve as perfect tool of innovation and demonstrate continuous improvement to the customer, while maintaining profit margins.
Here are several reasons why manufacturing OEMs should look into FTR technology as a way to drive innovation, increase productivity and generate results.
With increasing emphasis on quality and “Field Technical Report” (FTR), automotive OEMs must invest in robust manufacturing technologies that are primed for a sufficient ROI within a very short time period.
AR technology captures the low-hanging fruit for many automotive OEMs looking for rapid implementation of innovative, advanced collaboration and productivity tools.
If an automotive OEM commits to implement AR throughout their entire ecosystem, that may result in nearly 50% improvement in FTR.
Such implementation provide positive results and makes sense both as an innovative application of disruptive technology, and as an economic driver that brought about near-instant process improvements.
Augmented reality (AR) is a tool for advanced manufacturing technology that drives innovation on the manufacturing plant floor and provides an early ROI payoff. This technology blends advanced enterprise software, training and human performance into one robust collaboration tool.
Disruptive in nature, but easy-to-implement, this technology places digitally projected work instructions (static or dynamic) directly onto a part or surface. This allows OEMs to capture right information at right time, all while receiving real-time error proofing guidance that accelerates stability and leads to greater expertise.
Augmented Reality Drives Productivity
Filling the manufacturing skills gap is a scary task. In fact, 82% of today’s manufacturers report severe shortage of skilled workers. According to reports, till 2025 this gap will account for more than 2 million unfulfilled jobs.
AR is the catalyst for bridging this skills gap. The technology integrates reliable guidance, and takes users through a sequence of steps, complete with real-time performance feedback to vigorously and instantly correct mistakes.
At a smart manufacturing unit, everything is measured- or at least captured – in the big data cloud. The critical data gleaned from AR tools can provide important analytics that allow plant managers to take better business decisions to elevate efficiency and process improvements, and enhance the performance across the value chain.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution
We are into the fourth industrial revolution. Based on the system capability to connect with physical and digital world of production, OEMs can aim to advance manufacturing process and better integrate manufacturing value chains, products and services.
