Why connected workers? Why now?
By augmenting workers, companies are solving the challenges that have plagued operations for decades. Using technology to simplify workflows helps with:
Manual data entry
Paper and spreadsheets can slow down frontline operators, leading them to skip data entry and leaving engineers with incomplete data.
Any error in an industrial setting can be critical and error-proofing measures are needed to prevent issues like quality defects and equipment failure.
With employee turnover and retiring experts, those who hold all of the knowledge are leaving with it and new operators don't have the training they need.
What does a Connected Workflow look like?
Integrate digital work instructions with devices and sensors that are connected at the edge to make data collection an intuitive step in your process.
