Webinar: Benefits of smart glasses in manufacturing

Nora Nirhamo | 2021/10/11

Though ruggedized tablets typically use platforms familiar to workers and can be easy to use, the reality is that the majority of manufacturing employees work with their hands. Using tablets in manufacturing decreases worker productivity and situational awareness. In this webinar, Softability and RealWear will discuss how to tackle the problem and present the solutions available to it.

How to benefit from virtual co-operation, remote support and smart glasses for hands free work in manufacturing?

Though ruggedized tablets typically use platforms familiar to workers and can be easy to use, the reality is that the majority of manufacturing employees work with their hands. Whether they’re working on a production line, fixing a piece of equipment or inspecting a product, the ability to work with their hands is integral to their job. To use ruggedized tablets in industrial environments, workers must take their hands and attention away from whatever they’re doing.

This:

  • Decreases worker productivity, because they have to pause an activity to look at the device (with lower productivity affecting the bottom line)
  • Decreases situational awareness, which is critical to being able to identify and respond to life-threatening safety hazards (which can also affect the bottom line)

What’s needed is a pragmatic approach to connected worker programs that’s tailored to manufacturing and can deliver the digital transformation results the industry needs.

In this webinar, Softability and RealWear will discuss how to tackle the problem and present the solutions available to it. XReach remote support solution with RealWear head-mounted device can help manufacturers achieve their digital transformation goals and realize ROI, productivity, safety and knowledge transfer benefits from their connected worker devices.
