One year ago, we announced the formation of our European headquarters, located in the heart of the Czech Republic. The move provided a convenient launch point to expand business partnerships and more readily offer sales, setup and maintenance of Light Guide Systems throughout Europe and Africa.
IlluminationInsights and trends on augmented reality and advanced manufacturing technology
For manufacturing professionals, quality and consistency are paramount. In today’s manufacturing environment, there’s no room for assumptions: creating and monitoring meaningful, precise and verifiable metrics is essential.
While virtually all manufacturers are gathering data on a day-to-day basis, the quality of the captured data varies dramatically. And because that data isn’t always reliable, it’s subsequently not useful.
Fortunately, the ALCOA+ framework outlines a specific set of principles designed specifically to ensure data integrity.
In today’s rapidly evolving Industry 4.0 economy, we’ve earned our reputation as one of the most innovative and progressive manufacturing technology companies. By harnessing the power of augmented reality (AR) technology, we’ve helped companies around the globe make their manufacturing facilities smarter, safer and more efficient.
2018 was a fantastic year for us at OPS Solutions, and for augmented reality (AR) as a whole.
As more businesses around the world realize the power of AR, our team has done a fantastic job establishing OPS Solutions as a leading provider of enterprise AR solutions.
As a lean practitioner of many years, I have had the privilege of applying lean concepts in many different businesses including project engineering, repetitive manufacturing, process manufacturing and even in a sales capacity. I’ve had to apply lean principles in areas where the cycle times ranged from seconds to days, which allowed me to apply lean manufacturing tools in very different ways.
As one of the fastest growing enterprise AR companies, we have taken root not just in the United States, but in other regions of the world where manufacturing is strong.
After a successful MEDC-sponsored trade mission to China in July 2017, we knew our company had to take advantage of the opportunity again this year. With several different regions to choose from globally, we ultimately landed on India–one of the world’s fastest growing economies, and a country from which we receive a high level of interest in Light Guide Systems.
At OPS Solutions, we’re always looking to align with think tanks and innovation hubs that share our mission of helping manufacturers of all shapes and sizes improve their processes and compete more effectively in today’s industry 4.0-driven marketplace.
Today’s rapidly changing technology landscape demands constant innovation, and we could not be more proud of our team’s relentless focus on continuous improvement.
In 2005, we figured out a way to use augmented reality to help manufacturers drive operational processes with precision and speed and have been harnessing the power of AR technology ever since.
Here at OPS Solutions, we’re constantly thinking about new ways of using augmented reality to overcome complex operational challenges.
In working with world-class manufacturers across a wide variety of industries, each member of our team has had the opportunity to work on rewarding projects that have made a profound impact on our company and clients.
In this post, they recall some of their shining moments and share case study-worthy examples of how we’re using practical AR technology to drive innovation in manufacturing facilities around the world.
We are living in a society with more moving parts and pieces than ever before. Not only is there more variation in those individual products; there is more customization. From car doors to knee replacement hardware, nearly every product can be customized.
