Considering the new reality of social distancing, remote work, and sudden shift in demand life sciences industry is looking forward adopt technology to help them in this situation.
Fremont, CA: Augmented reality (AR) has come out as a uniquely positioned technology to help the organizations navigate the future of work and take digital technology to the frontline, allowing them to maintain the business continuity and drive resiliency. These trends are an everyday reality for the life sciences manufacturers. The sudden transition in the market demand and the production constraints have demanded a re-evaluation of priorities taking the life sciences manufacturers to edge to consider an increase in production of one essential good at the expense of non-essential products abbreviated time.
Here are three reasons why it is the best time for the life sciences leaders to begin thinking about their AR strategy.
AR works with the present infrastructure
Digital transformation is on the priority list for many leading manufacturers, but generally integration of new technology and processes with their existing infrastructure and equipment can pose to be a challenge. As augmented reality solutions are overlaying digital transformation in the physical world, these experiences are delivered via a different technology layer, which does not need to be integrated with the legacy operational technologies.
Managers will adopt AR capabilities without the need to rip and replace their core infrastructure, using AR-enabled devices to supplement the technology on the plant floor.
AR improves training and knowledge transfer
In an industry such as Life Sciences, the manufacturer’s most valuable asset is the highly skilled people who direct, operate, and repair these machines. Numerous employees in the life sciences sector have spent a lot of time building their knowledge and developing their expertise. Still, when these employees retire, new employees enter the workforce, and new and necessary skills emerge, establishing practical training and knowledge transfer processes vital to the business’s ongoing success.
AR enhances broader digital transformation efforts
Digital transformation is critical for several leading manufacturers, but integrating new technology and processes along with the present infrastructure and equipment can be very challenging. Although augment reality solutions overlay digital transformation into the physical world, these experiences are delivered via a different technology layer that does not have to be integrated with the legacy operational technologies. The manufacturers can adopt the AR capabilities without replacing their core infrastructure, leveraging AR-enabled devices for supplementing the technology on the plant floor.
