Augmented reality can display annotations on a project or visually demonstrate how to complete as task. “With AR you can draw on a field of vision, insert bubbles or have manuals pop up for the application. Virtual reality can show customers how their end-product will look.
Drawings or PowerPoint presentations are two-dimensional, whereas VR immerses users in a simulated/Artificial environment. For manufacturers, use cases are most often utilizing step by step instructions to speed the completion of tasks and improve work quality and collaboration among workers. As consumer expectations rise, these types of initiatives yield not only internal workforce benefits but ultimately improve relationships with customers and supply chain partners, providing competitive advantages. Industrial enterprises are focusing on harnessing AR /VR capabilities across their value chains.
