SPECIAL REPORT/RESOURCE MANAGEMENT: Advances in Video Collaboration
The recent article in Ceramic Industry Magazine, explores mobile video collaboration within manufacturing.
“The team in Mexico streamed video from the plant floor using the mobile device to show the engineering team the existing production process. By seeing the process live, the specialists identified numerous process errors. They then communicated the problems and corrective action steps during the live collaboration session.
To make sure the feedback was clear, the production team in Mexico then showed the remote engineering team the revised process. This collaboration took three hours instead of the estimated three or four days that typically resulted from attempts to correct problems over e-mail or travel. As a result, the scrap rate immediately decreased by 25% after the new process was implemented.”
