We are demystifying the cross linked needs of AR setup in this series of “The Future of Maintenance”. In other words , How to be ready for applying AR when it knocks our doors in maintenance?
Category: Maintenance Management
Let’s go through the elements that can make AR application in maintenance possible. So, when someone offers you an AR tool you know what you will be looking for. Optical Recognition will be our starting point. It is simply how the AR sees the world around it.
The future of maintenance is full of new technological tools as the Augmented Reality. This will support, improve and evolve how we do maintenance. That’s not a daydream or a hope, it is already applied. So it is a matter of time to be available for you.
When the AI Agent senses its environment as the gameboard or the user preferences it can infer new equations representing this new status. The next action or recommendation will be based on the previous equations it built. Let’s see examples about it.
The key to reach to this balance point quickly and make full use of AI in maintenance is to perceive AI correctly. Creating correct perceptions about AI needs understanding what is the AI? How it works? and its real capabilities and potential.
We tried to bring the AI or Artificial Intelligence closer to our minds. If you can understand the intensions and thinking methodology of any human, you will be better in dealing with him/her. This applies also for AI. If you managed to understand the intentions of the AI -Artificial Intelligence and how its rational model works. You will accept it, use it for your own good and, even improve it to be a real ally or a perfect helping hand.
It is important to understand what is AI -Artificial Intelligence- in details because it is currently part of our work and life even if we don’t realize this.
Whether Industry 4.0 or Industry 5.0 is the current industry trend both of them relies on the Intelligence of the machines. An Intelligent machine can sense its environment, take a decision and apply an action or give a recommendation. How this can transform maintenance?
Historically maintenance evolves as industry evolves. With every Industrial Revolution, Maintenance tools and strategies grow to provide the needed service for this industrial era. Now what shall we do with the Augmented reality and other technologies Industry 4.0 introduce in the production environment??!
In maintenance we practice visualization often when planning. We draw a whole process and draft a huge set of preparations out of our expectation for the end result. To draw the maintenance future we need to draw what we dream about the end result then we plan the Agile steps to reach there. Let’s follow on.
