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.
IlluminationInsights and trends on augmented reality and advanced manufacturing technology
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.
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.
