Global manufacturing is going through a fundamental and transformational phase, with the inclusion of advanced automation, artificial intelligence, and Industry 4.0 IT applications completely changing the way things are done on the traditional shop floor. This large-scale change necessitates that manufacturing training and assistance must also transform as paper-based training manuals and work instructions become obsolete.
The new training era is more hands-on, experiential, real-life, and result oriented. Such training and assistance use Industry 4.0 technology to prepare the frontline and acquaint them with highly specific tasks and production standards using AR, VR, and video-based instructions. However, in order to successfully transform current training practices it is critical to choose the right implementation partners and have a clear vision of what the transformed training paradigm would look like!
Understanding Training 4.0:
Without Training 4.0 it will be difficult, if not impossible, for companies to realize the full potential of Industry 4.0. Training 4.0 uses the same digital transformation technology gamut deployed for Industry 4.0 to better train the current and future frontline. The goal is to preserve organizational know-how and have a faster worker qualification turnaround for quicker deployment on the shop floor and fewer production-related errors.
