CHALLENGE

VIRTUALLY ENHANCED MANUAL FOR COMPLEX SIG COMBIBLOC FILLING MACHINE

 

Whether in trai­ning, opera­tions, trou­ble­shoo­ting or main­ten­ance, when an employee needs inst­ruc­tions for compli­cated machinery or equip­ment they need it easy to under­stand and imme­dia­tely acces­sible. KOTHES wanted to address this by virtually enhan­cing their exis­ting manual with Augmented Reality. Speci­fi­cally, the SIG Combi­bloc company wanted to project tech­nical content directly onto a machine clearly explai­ning what the employee was looking at or supposed to do.

The infor­ma­tion should be color coded, clearly arranged and inter­ac­tively linked. Further­more, it should be possible to create and adapt the content directly from the content manage­ment system without any programming.

SOLUTION

AUGMENTED REALITY INTERGRATED INTO TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION

 

In close colla­bo­ra­tion, RE’FLEKT, Kothes! and DOCUFY have created an intui­tive, mobile and easy to navi­gate user manual for opera­tion, repair, and main­ten­ance. By inte­gra­ting the REFLEKT ONE AR plat­form to the COSIMA go! and Topic­Pilot edito­rial tools, compa­nies are now able to easily enhance exis­ting manuals and inst­ruc­tions with augmented reality. The Kothes! docu­men­ta­tion specia­lists can now profit from a seam­less inte­gra­tion and intui­tive use of the manual.

How does it work? The employee simply points the tablet at a machine’s barcode to iden­tify the machine and the virtual guide imme­dia­tely appears. The manual is context sensi­tive with its images struc­tured to scale using color coded, clearly arranged and linked inter­ac­tive content.
