Earlier this year, we were honored that the independent research company StartUsInsights named Light Guide Systems one of the top Augmented Reality training tools in the world. We make training easy!
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.
The innovative spirit that put the world on wheels lives on as advances in manufacturing technology continue to move Michigan forward as a burgeoning tech hub. At OPS Solutions, we’re proud to contribute to the growth of this sector within Michigan’s economy.
New and emerging technologies are making it possible for the automotive industry to keep moving the world forward. Our innovative projector-based AR technology is leading the movement of efficiency in the manufacturing sector, including the automotive industry, both here in the United States and abroad.
The American manufacturing industry is currently undergoing a bit of a rough patch.
In 2015, the Bureau of Labor Statistics noted a rise in productivity in just 21 of 86 manufacturing sectors – the lowest number since the recession in 2009. A report states 82% of today’s manufacturers are experiencing either a moderate or severe shortage of skilled workers – a gap that is only expected to grow wider. And, recalls in the automotive sector alone hit a record 53.6 million in 2016.
