In the fast-paced world of industry, staying ahead often means embracing innovative solutions that redefine the way we work. Augmented and cross-reality solutions have emerged as game-changers, unlocking a myriad of possibilities across various sectors.
Here, we delve into five compelling use cases where our customers have harnessed the power of AR to elevate their operations to new heights.
Use Case 1: Assistance during Production
One of the key challenges in production lies in ensuring the quality and progress of each phase.
With AR, remote inspection of production phases, including Quality Control Plans (QCP) and Inspection and Test Plans (ITP), has become a reality.
The flexibility of virtual presence allows for final acceptance tests with participation from all stakeholders, leading to more flexible production plans, increased control of delivery schedules, and substantial cost savings associated with physical inspections.
Use Case 2: Assistance during Engineering, Construction, and Start-up (E&C)
Efficiency is paramount during the engineering, construction, and start-up phases.
AR facilitates remote assessment of work in progress, enabling real-time supervision and seamless management of day-to-day issues related to construction projects.
The result? Lower project management costs, enhanced control of execution schedules, and improved resolution of on-site challenges.
Use Case 3: After Sales Assistance (O&M)
Maintaining operational excellence post-construction is made easier with AR.
Real-time assistance to field personnel, even from suppliers and contractors, ensures quick issue resolution. Additionally, remote services contribute to increased efficiency in field activities, better planning, reduced logistics costs, and enhanced safety through fewer people in hazardous environments.
Use Case 4: Inspection, Audit, and Certification
AR transforms the traditional methods of inspection, audit, and certification.
Remote verification of asset and equipment status streamlines certification processes, while virtual assessment and qualification of plants and assets lead to increased efficiency, resource optimization, and reduced process costs.
Use Case 5: Training and Supervision
Training and supervision reach new heights with AR.
Field training for personnel, training for service network personnel, and supervision of critical Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) activities become more efficient, flexible, and safe.
AR enables faster learning, precise evaluation of abilities, flexible planning, and heightened safety in workplaces.
In conclusion, these five use cases highlight the diverse ways in which augmented and cross-reality solutions are reshaping industries. The benefits extend beyond efficiency and cost savings to encompass enhanced safety, flexibility, and unprecedented control over various operational aspects. As technology continues to evolve, the potential for further innovations in industrial processes becomes limitless. Are you ready to revolutionize your operations with AR? The future is now.
