ASSET AND MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT
This function provides a technician or engineer charged with maintaining or inspecting an asset with all the power of a data management system while leaving them hands free to carry out the tasks they need to complete.
This may mean providing a list maintenance tasks and the related data specific for the task they are about to carry out by the technician within the field of vision of the headset wearer while leaving him or her hands free. The data can be linked directly from an existing SAP, Maximo or other ERP Asset and Maintenance Management system. Alternatively specific information for each asset and task can be set up as part of the integration of the system.
Further benefits of using an Augmented Reality system for this task is the ability to add photography or video to the process. This could mean that a technician logs the completion of a task by using the headset to automatically take a photo or video. It could also relate to making past media created available to the headset wearer to consume while physically at the asset.
