Plan how your organization will introduce Vuforia Studio. A thorough rollout plan helps you navigate change and achieve value from augmented reality.
Before you begin, complete these steps:
As usage grows across your organization, more workers will rely on augmented reality to perform their jobs. Similar to other business systems and processes, your organization should have a backup plan in case of outages or disruptions. Workers should have ongoing access to training manuals, work instructions, or other materials that Vuforia Studio will replace.
If your AR use case includes integration with other enterprise data sources such as IoT, CRM, and MES systems, consider how those assets may cause or be affected by downtime. This ensures your organization will continue operating efficiently in case of outages.
Plan how you will teach employees to use augmented reality. As you develop a training plan, consider how to best train different communities of AR users. For example, employees in one department may be more technology savvy than those in another department. Or different communities may speak different languages. Your training approach will vary depending on your end users’ needs and your available resources.
The Vuforia View app is designed to be intuitive and easy to learn. But employees who are new to AR may need some hands-on training to get started.
Consider how you will deliver training. You could:
End user training should cover:
If your end users work across many locations, determine how to coordinate training across sites.
Later in the project, you’ll test the AR experience with the people who will someday use it. This is a great opportunity to observe how much training they need to get started.
Various contributors will collaborate to build and maintain augmented reality experiences. For example, one or more developers will collaborate with a subject matter expert to design and create an AR experience. Others perform quality assurance and user acceptance testing in a closed environment. Finally, others are involved in publishing an AR experience to a production environment for use across the organization.
Configuration and source control (sometimes known as “DevOps”) outlines how these contributors manage the AR experience throughout its life cycle.
To begin outlining your configuration and source control process, answer these questions:
Your organization’s rollout plan helps ensure your organization is ready to roll out Vuforia Studio–get workers started using it. The specifics of your rollout plan will vary, depending on your organization’s use case.
Typically, a rollout plan outlines:
This plan will communicate many of the decisions you made through execution planning. Document your rollout plan and share it accordingly.
