Masterclass

Integrate digital work instructions and make your operators excel

This hands-on masterclass will introduce you to digital work instructions and how these can be integrated in your production environment. We will show you a wide range of solutions and tools so you can make the right choice for your business and operations. You will have the chance to experiment and seek advice from our experts.

The masterclass is fully booked!

Why should you commit to digital work instructions?

•    Support operators with additional internal knowledge. Technical staff are hard to find. And what if your most important 'walking database’ is about to retire? You can put everything into Word documents or PowerPoints, but these are rarely up to date and not workable on a factory floor. We will tell you how it can be done better.

•    Don’t lose time on changeovers. Customers increasingly expect personalised products. This means smaller volumes and higher complexity because machines have to be adjusted more frequently. It also poses an increased security risk.

•    Support your operators in their rapidly changing and expanding tasks by integrating digital tools that will help them to access relevant knowledge on the spot.

•    Thanks to digital tools, you will also gain insight into how (in)efficient your work processes actually are. These tools could also reveal training needs among operators.

Who for?

Jobs where errors or omissions are difficult to rule out, due to
•    complex assembly operations
•    tasks with a critical sequence of operations
•    operations where tool setting parameters must be correct
•    specific safety regulations or quality actions to be followed
•    extensive options due to large product variety
•    seasonal production capacity
•    rotating staff

It is also an ideal training tool for new employees or an electronic instruction booklet on a mobile device during assembly or maintenance work in the field.
