There is a growing workforce skills gap in the manufacturing and industrial sector, with approximately 10 million jobs needing to be filled in the coming decade. This is exacerbated by the exodus of highly talented and knowledgeable retiring workers. Technology is required to capture, curate, package and delivery this subject matter expertise to new workers in a way that speeds time to productivity while reducing training costs.
This is a serious challenge. An effective solution must be grounded in, and guided by, the neuroscience of human performance. The neuroscience suggests that the most effective workforce training tools engage the worker in a way that directly and naturally maps onto the relevant learning and memory systems in the brain. PTC’s Vuforia Expert Capture uses augmented reality technology to meet these needs by curating subject matter experts’ knowledge and presenting that information to workers in a way that minimizes cognitive load while simultaneously engaging experiential and behavioral skills learning systems in the brain. This speeds time to productivity, trains subject matter and behavioral skills expertise, all while reducing training costs.
