LCE can now help manufacturing plants and industrial facilities use augmented reality (AR) to help solve multiple problems affecting asset-intensive workplaces: a lack of skilled workers to execute work; a lack of easily accessible, documented work instructions; and ineffective technical training for complex work.
LCE’s Quality Work Execution Quick Start, powered by Manifest® is a package of hardware, software licenses, and services. This comprehensive solution enables companies to quickly and affordably deploy and effectively evaluate using augmented reality to improve the quality of work execution. With the Quick Start customers receive a focused, 10-week project engagement with Life Cycle Engineering (www.LCE.com) and Taqtile (www.Taqtile.com). This provides sufficient time to kick-start the use of Taqtile’s Manifest® technology within a customer’s work environment and organize a plan for broader adoption throughout the organization.
Testing the use of AR is a good way to determine if it can deliver these anticipated benefits:
Improve frontline worker productivity because it’s easier to complete tasks accurately and quickly
Reduce rework and waste, boosting profit margins
Improve training effectiveness, so employees can develop and use new skills faster and labor productivity increases
At the completion of the 10-week Quick Start engagement, LCE will help the Quick Start user determine if they want to continue access to the Manifest platform, integrate SCADA/IoT sensors, integrate with a CMMS program, and continue support with documenting asset data and creating job plan templates.
