Companies can no longer rely on traditional hard copy or video work instructions and basic training and expect a highly efficient workforce. Nor can they rely on the memory and skill retention of their operators and technicians to handle the increasing complexity and variation of products and production lines. As the factory floor goes digital, the factory employees must go digital to keep pace.
The solutions that drive innovation in manufacturing are increasingly data-centric. In this age of digital transformation, value is established by creating and capturing data, deriving insights from data, or executing complex auto-mated tasks based on data.
