Augmented reality became a serious tool to revolutionize the manufacturing process. From designing to verification, testing to maintenance augmented reality tools became an important pillar in manufacturing.
As mentioned by Aberdeen, 63% of the top manufacturing companies are already using augmented reality. About 33% of the best-class companies are currently using the benefits of augmented reality and are trying to incorporate it into their production process.
It helps in connecting technology with real life. It is also very beneficial for providing technical assistance to assist in the physical challenges in the manufacturing industry, which can result in immense savings of both time and money.
It has helped companies by increasing their ROI by 16% over the past two years and a decrease of 15% in the time-to-time decision and manufacturing cycle time.
Augmented reality is an interactive experience that allows creating a virtual world that is the same as the real one. The company often seems to be using multiple sensory modalities that help create a real-life type environment for the person using it. AR is now making a breakthrough in every field. It helps enhance the entire manufacturing process from a reduction in the cost of training to improved operator performance.
Following are some of the benefits of augmented reality in manufacturing as shared by pixerio:
It can help employees provide solutions in the cloud space created by AR and VR, which can help them provide solutions from a distance. There are already various TV and other multimedia systems that have been deployed by engineers who extensively use AR and VR.
Along with the advancement of the process capabilities, It is generally associated with various changes in management capabilities. A substantial shift in management strategies can prove that the companies are prepared enough to support individuals and teams during the development process.
Those companies currently using it are more likely to have a formal process to request, approve, and communicate the change in the operation process.
AR can be beneficial for modeling new production flows, minimizing downtime, accidents, and management issues. Virtual optimization of the workflows allows for efficient analysis of the risk and thus can have strong proposals and informed change approvals.
