Standardizing Medical Manufacturing with Augmented Reality Technology

In any manufacturing sector, standardization of assembly processes and sequencing is a critical tool for honing processes, improving efficiency and consistency, and reducing error rates. It is especially critical for today’s increasingly complex and customized medical devices.

That customization presents significant challenges. For each variation in a prosthetic or pacemaker, there are additional pain points to address. Standardization becomes increasingly elusive, and new variables are introduced that make achieving the high quality standards required of medical devices that much more difficult.

Man-ufacturing: The Return of Man Over Machine in Factories

The last few decades have seen a steady trend toward more automation in manufacturing. Sophisticated robots have gradually replaced human workers on many factory floors and assembly lines, as manufacturers work to reduce error rates and improve cycle times. Given that long-term trend, what is happening today (particularly in the automotive manufacturing space) may seem surprising: in certain circumstances, humans are replacing robots.
