SAP IoT Startup Accelerator: Supercharging the Smart Factory

SAP IoT Startup Accelerator: Supercharging the Smart Factory
With SAP, startup attenio is using augmented reality (AR) to build tomorrow’s smart factories now.

Henry Ford once said, “You can have any color you want as long as it is black.” But in today’s fiercely competitive landscape, manufacturers have to deliver with a level of speed and flexibility unimaginable even 10 years ago. AR is making it all possible, helping factories respond to customer demand with faster turnaround times and smaller, customized production runs.

Thanks to the close collaboration of startup attenio and the SAP Manufacturing Execution application, the smart factory of the future is already becoming a reality. By delivering precise workflows to any digital device, workers can save as much as 33 percent of time that would otherwise be spent searching for assembly parts and instructions.

“Seeing is believing — and succeeding,” says Dr. Fedor Titov, CEO of attenio. “By empowering workers to visualize their tasks, we’re helping create a highly responsive factory that delights customers on demand.”

Building the Smart Factory of the Future
Like a painting on canvas, the attenio application projects mission-critical information directly onto a work surface. This provides operators with interactive guidance in real time. At the same time, it also helps workers drive manual processes with speed and precision.

The resulting smart factory environment gives workers greater control over assembly and training processes without sacrificing quality. At the same time, it ensures that each product is built correctly, every time. In fact, factories that adopt the attenio AR solution report a substantial increase of production time, and a drastic reduction in errors.

“SAP is collaborating with attenio to put more smart factory concepts in customers’ hands now,” says Tony Aschwanden, global product owner for SAP Manufacturing Execution. “That’s an enormous advantage in the race for digital transformation.”

Technology with Impact
Recent collaboration successes demonstrate just how powerful AR can be in a manufacturing environment. From rapid production times, improved maintenance, and fewer downtimes, new solutions are helping workers across industries visualize highly complex workflows to achieve better performance.

To learn more about how attenio and SAP are building tomorrow’s smart factory now, visit Hall 7 Stand A02 at Hannover Messe 2018. Fedor and Aschwanden will be available to answer your questions.

Discover why the future of AR has an important place in today’s smart factory – and at SAP.
