What is Augmented Reality in the Manufacturing Industry? (Part 2 of 2) – Dassault Systèmes blog

What are the advantages of augmented reality in the industry?

Within the future industry, augmented reality reshapes many aspects, such as the increased competence of operators and their way of interacting with a real working environment by importing digital data.

Thus, augmented reality guides operators step by step with information in various forms:

This replaces the time-consuming, manual processes of the past and makes task execution much faster and simpler. In addition, AR brings multiple gains in the industrial environment, whether remote visualization, better information transmission, or field data feedback to the digital twin.

Using new technologies such as AR can support the operators in their operational tasks to improve the company’s performance and build the operator of tomorrow.

The choice to deploy an augmented reality solution is to bring the right information at the right time and place and contribute to:

The data collected with augmented reality can be used to promote the digital transformation of information, optimize industrial processes and contribute to better traceability.

The right hardware to use augmented reality in your industry

These connected tools and augmented reality allow digital work instructions to be easily displayed and visualized regardless of the company’s environment. In addition, it develops operators’ skills, helping to build the augmented operator.

Before implementing an AR solution in your plant, you must first identify the right use cases. Download our Top Ten Use Cases eBook to discover solutions that will bring you the most value and ROI in the short term. 

Augmented reality in industry: how to choose the right use case?

To choose the right use case, focus your efforts and research on operations that generate costly defects (non-conformances), long or unscheduled downtime, plant safety problems or high customer dissatisfaction.

Before you get started, you should also ask yourself the right questions:

Once these questions are answered, you will be ready to determine the best use case for your plant and launch the project. Then all you have to do is find the solution and above all, the right supplier!

What will be the future of augmented reality in industry?

Today, everything deploys and evolves very quickly, and the same goes for these AR technologies that will continually evolve and improve. So what we can say for the future of these solutions is that the new versions will be based on these different axes:

Choose the right augmented reality solution for your industry!

Choosing the most efficient solution best suited to your industrial environment is ideal. Many industrial software publishers are setting up demos or tests of their augmented reality solutions, but the industrial implementation of these technologies often goes no further than the POC.
