Today, when problems occur on the factory floor, every second to respond and correct the issues collectively cost manufacturers billions of dollars in lost productivity each year. Unplanned downtime can cost $20,000 per minute or more, so the clock is ticking.

This presentation will provide an industry solutions approach and specific examples detailing how humans gain productivity in the work environment in the Context of Industrie 4.0 including:

  • Increased worker productivity through virtual remediation, mentoring, and training on the factory floor
  • Reduced response and repair times for factory floor equipment and systems, as remote experts virtually collaborate over mobile devices in real time at the point of the issue
  • Improved equipment utilization and reduce operating costs through greater equipment uptime
  • Enhanced recruiting and development of next-generation workforce trained by seasoned remote experts located anywhere in the world
