Did you know that more than 20% of operational downtime is related to bad work instructions? In this session, Daan Assen, an expert on microlearning and instructional design from The Netherlands, will highlight the importance of capturing and digitizing tribal knowledge in order to cut changeover time while improving onboarding and safety. His SaaS company SwipeGuide provides an intuitive platform to create, share, and track intelligent work instructions in a matter of minutes, based on academic research and enhanced by machine learning. Machine operators and field service engineers visualize, standardize, and execute digital user guides on mobile devices and smart glasses. Daan will use the beer brewing company Heineken as an example of how the company has cut changeover time in half by implementing digital work instructions to their global supply chain.
