A SURVEY by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has found that 93% of engineering employers think that their staff don’t have the necessary skills to meet sustainability goals and thus contributing to the skills gap.
Traditional methods of training and knowledge transfer have often been expensive, difficult to keep current, and ineffective. Augmented reality will allow you to bridge the skills gap without all these negative consequences.
Onboarding staff into an engineering environment is not easy and unless you keep the effectiveness of that onboarding as near as possible to 100% the drop-off can be dramatic.
For instance, if you allow the effectiveness of your onboarding to drop to 80% (which is still pretty good) and you hire 40 people you will only retain a productivity level equivalent to 22 people.
Augmented Reality is the answer as it will allow you to deliver training that represents what is done in the real world, allow knowledge transfer from your existing skilled members of staff without taking them away from the valuable role that they fulfill.
Business Value of Augmented Reality addressing the skills gap in Industrial organisations
Industrial manufacturers must develop new strategies to drive operational excellence, increase workforce productivity and differentiate themselves to address the skills gap. Augmented reality helps address the manufacturing skills gap and influences the future of work by empowering critical human assets: AR replaces outdated, inaccurate, or non-existent hardcopy instructions with up-to-date, real-time, digitised contextual knowledge and instructions when & where they are needed most; in the real-world context of their daily work environment.
We recognise the transformative potential of AR in helping industrial customers through increased productivity, reduced scrap & rework, and improved safety & compliance.
- Increase Workforce Efficiency
- Maintain Safety & Compliance
- Reduce Cost and Waste
