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.

Augmented Reality and the skills gap
Vuforia Expert Capture is the fastest, easiest way to create powerful step-by-step instructions that help front-line workers get their jobs done quickly and accurately. This out-of-the-box solution features effortless AR content creation for industrial enterprises looking to rapidly document expert knowledge and then easily scale that knowledge to new or redeployed workers as hands-on training or task guidance.

 

Vuforia Instruct is designed for manufacturing companies who seek a scalable, out-of-the-box solution to reduce the errors associated with traditional training and instruction methods. Vuforia Instruct will enable our industrial customers to extend the value of the digital thread all the way to the front-line workers by leveraging their 3D CAD to easily create, deliver and scale interactive work instructions to front-line workers for Quality and Maintenance Inspection use cases.
Bridging the skills gap

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address the manufacturing skills gap and influences the future of work by empowering critical human assets: AR replaces outdated, inaccurate, or non-existent hardcopy instructions with up-to-date, real-time, digitised contextual knowledge and instructions when & where they are needed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.
