Kalypso acquired by Rockwell Automation, Inc. (NYSE: ROK). Read the press release.
Extended reality (XR) is a key enabler of digital transformation. As part of the connected enterprise, extended reality uses a mix of wearable and handheld augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), spatial computing and virtual reality (VR) tools to overlay additional digital information into how work gets done, enabling more efficient learning, remote working and significant business benefits.
Extended reality brings digital information into view for product manufacturing, user training and service value chain by leveraging 3D geometry, audio, video, text and other media from multiple sources, including PLM systems, at any point in the product lifecycle – design, testing, quality assurance, manufacturing and after product launch.
Extended reality is the visualization and enablement component of a digital thread. We help companies leverage extended reality tools to create multiple digital threads - the digital fabric and foundation upon which we build your place in Industry 4.0.
Tools allowing multiple users to visualize and interact with a product’s digital twin in a real or virtual environment.
VR & AR tools guiding trainees to help understand the working procedures of machinery, and maintenance needed in various scenarios.
Helping employees working on plant floor cells to assemble components correctly and in the right order.
XR can allow a product to be identified in the field, to gather and provide information , and execute activities related to that product.
XR and VR can be used to simulate the spatial configuration and user experiences of products even without their physical presence.
We take a human-centric approach to extended reality that prioritizes peoples’ needs, capabilities and behaviors first, then designs to accommodate. We combine deep experience in strategy, process improvement and organizational effectiveness with expertise in extended reality technologies and solutions.
Our recommended approach includes a discovery and use case definition phase, followed by an agile design and development phase in sprints, concluding with sprint reviews, readiness/UAT and formal validation. Whether you're just starting to explore extended reality or looking to mature specific use cases, we collaborate with you through all phases of the implementation process to realize the value of your extended reality investment.
TESTING & VALIDATION
Designed and conducted an AR proof of concept for a leading industrial gas company to validate AR as a method to reduce costs and increase machinery availability across hundreds of plants
