Innovative approaches to reduce both direct materials costs and indirect materials costs

The idea of reaching near-zero levels of waste and rework used to seem out of reach, but new technologies are cutting both direct and indirect materials costs. Identify and eliminate hidden sources of waste and address problems before they arise with real-time asset monitoring and digital work instructions.

Reduce scrap and rework with augmented reality

Industrial organizations lose millions in potential revenue due to production line downtime, defects, and waste. Augmented reality and IIoT are helping organizations drive game-changing improvements with digital work instructions and AR-enabled expert support. Read the E-book
