What if, remotely....

...Operators could run tools, technicians could monitor and maintain equipment, and supervisors and foreman could manage workflow and safety conditions?

In this episode we will explain how connected and mobile technologies enable manufacturing companies to:

  • Increase worker productivity – use mobile devices to give workers instructions, notifications, and information at the place of work
  • Reduce response and repair times – monitor equipment remotely to shift from preventive to predictive maintenance as well as remotely repair/tune equipment (when safety conditions allow)
  • Enhance recruiting and development – enable the digitally capable worker to use augmented (AR) and virtual reality to solve problems faster with remote experts
  • Improve plant safety – connect mobile and remote sensors to ensure environmental and personal safety conditions prevail
