The inspiration for our company’s augmented reality analytics dashboard, the Light Guide Systems Live Data Viewer, came from a desire to help manufacturing companies identify answers to common operational challenges and reach new levels of operational efficiency.
IlluminationInsights and trends on augmented reality and advanced manufacturing technology
Augmented reality (AR) technology has come a long way in the past decade, and Light Guide Systems has been evolving along with it. But today’s most complex and sophisticated AR technologies only make up the first few drops of what’s shaping up to be a downpour of innovation in the near future. Enterprise AR, in particular, comprises a large segment of the AR market, and promises significant growth.
As the global leader in augmented reality manufacturing technology, OPS Solutions frequently visits the world’s biggest industry conferences and trade shows to show companies the cost-cutting capabilities and profit-producing power our products provide.
Our company has long been at the forefront of the augmented reality revolution, designing, developing and deploying innovative augmented reality systems since 2005.
Over the years, we’ve learned a lot about ourselves, our products, our services, and our customers. Our early years were focused on fine-tuning our patented manufacturing AR technology to help organizations simplify the complex manual tasks that are part of a company’s assembly, sequencing and training operations. Now we’re at a unique point in our own operational journey and are able to move beyond product development and focus on expanding our approach to customer success.
As a continuation of our employee spotlight series, this week we’re featuring Mackenzie Harris, an integration engineer for OPS Solutions. Continue reading to learn more about his background and how he helps support our industry-leading team.
OPS Solutions wouldn’t be a global leader in augmented reality manufacturing technology without the world’s greatest team making it all happen behind the scenes. Our employees work vigorously to keep Light Guide Systems (our projection-based AR technology) at the cutting-edge of enterprise AR solutions, and each one has a story we want to share. This week, we’re shining a spotlight on Mikayla Ray, an AR software and development engineer on our team.
One of the hottest topics of conversation in the industry right now—and a big part of the mission of organizations like the Manufacturing times Digital institute (MxD) in Chicago—is the digital thread, and the related concept of the digital twin.
Augmented reality technology has wide-ranging applications in a variety of industries, including the ability to enhance food preparation processes for restaurant kitchens of all kinds.
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.
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.
