The Effective Implementation of SOPs Using Augmented Expert Guidance
Ronan Kelly, Innovative Technology Solutions Senior Manager, Pfizer and Catherine Logan, Digital Manufacturing, Pfizer
Pharmaceutical manufacturing is rapidly increasing in complexity. This comes with more complex procedures, the need for effective training and more demand for knowledge retention from front-line workers. Lengthy standard operating procedures (SOPs) and "read-and-understands" are a core part of training, but can seem redundant and difficult to follow to the new digitally-inclined workforce. Introducing new technology is required to keep our workforce engaged, motivated and productive but this can be challenging in a highly regulated, quality-driven environment. Capturing the tacit knowledge of skilled workers is a hugely valuable resource that Pfizer has been tapping into with augmented expert guidance. Learn how Pfizer Digital Manufacturing has been equipping the workforce with the tools to create improved procedure documentation, effectively transferring tacit knowledge, and empowering workers with knowledge at their fingertips.

Modernizing Technician Training with Augmented Reality
Wes Tomer, Augmented Reality Training Specialist, Atlas Copco VTS
Atlas Copco Vacuum Technique produces vacuum pumps and systems that are essential in a wide range of applications such as thin-film coating, mass-spectrometry, solar technology, steel-degassing, and food packaging. Manufacturing, sales, and distribution centers cover multiple brands and a vast range of products requiring service. Service technicians are spread across the globe in teams to maintain and repair a wide range of vacuum pumps. There is an ever-increasing need for training as new products are developed more rapidly. Traditional training methods require an instructor in a classroom setting, but Atlas Copco has added augmented reality (AR) training to provide a more modern, flexible solution. Self-paced AR training enables technicians to delve deeply into the content to gain a better understanding of products. It allows them to get 3D in-context guidance without having an instructor in the room, and learn while having their hands free to work on the physical product. Watch this session recording to learn more about how Atlas Copco is using Augmented Reality in its service business.
