Safeguarding the Standard
By defining a standard way of working, we secure a stable output while providing a foundation from which the production process can be further improved. Therefore, standardized work is the first and essential step to boost performance and quality as it establishes a baseline for comparison and allows to highlight problems and gaps that we can subsequently seek to close.
A standard operating procedure (SOP) is a set of written instructions that describes the step-by-step process that must be carried out to properly perform a routine activity. Standard operating procedures provide the policies, processes and standards needed for the organization to succeed. They can beneficial for a business by reducing errors, increasing efficiencies and profitability, creating a safe work environment and producing guidelines for resolving issues and overcoming obstacles. It ensures safety, correctness and efficiency, and makes sure we have the best work method and quality, with the least amount of waste at the lowest cost.
Manufacturers are often challenged to secure that the standard is widely applied and effectively used in their operations. As a result, too many errors occur in operations due to operators not following the SOPs consistently. There are many reasons why SOPs are not followed: lack of adequate training, misinterpretation of the written documentation, out-of-date or missing information or the use of wrong SOPs corresponding to a certain product variant.
By introducing the Arkite Operator Guidance platform, manufacturers are able to maintain (or even return to) the standard into their operations. The combination of the Arkite Augmented Reality instructions with the validation by the Arkite 3D sensor ensures that operators are guided through the SOPs in a safe, efficient and resilient way.
Guiding I/O module assembly at Petersime
- Step-by-step digital work instructions through projected AR
- Supporting multiple product variants
- Reducing picking and assembly errors
- Training and supporting new operators
Petersime was looking for a solution to support the operator during the assembly of an I/O module. The solution provides highly precise augmented reality projections on the workbench. The systems make it easier for new operators to perform complex tasks with a high variability. Arkite’s increases customer quality by reducing picking and assembly errors. An additional benefit for Petersime is our platform’s capability to train new operators.
