7 benefits of digital employees
Overcome skills shortage, increase your ROI and achieve maximum competitiveness
In today's manufacturing industry, companies face various challenges, including the supply chain, the shortage of skilled labor, and the need to produce efficiently and high-quality products. By integrating digital assistance systems into manual production, companies are able to withstand these challenges and additionally increase their competitiveness.
Have you ever considered implementing a digital worker assistant?
Here are 7 benefits you'll enjoy by deploying a digital workforce on your shop floor:
Digital employees in the fight against skills shortage
No more staff shortages due to emotional stress: Worker assistance systems relieve the burden by taking over the quality insurance and guiding the worker step by step with digital checklists. This reduces the number of errors, forgotten or incorrectly positioned components and allows immediate correction. When combined with parallel quality assurance, worker guidance provides emotional relief, leads to greater motivation and strengthens loyalty to the company.
Goodbye to extended induction periods: Thanks to precise instructions and quality checks, new colleagues can start working immediately, and time-consuming induction periods become a thing of the past. This reduces the workload on existing employees and allows them to be deployed for other value-adding work.
Any employee can manufacture anything: A combination of easy-to-understand instructions and constant quality checks makes it possible to work without specialized knowledge. As a result, every employee can manufacture anything, can be deployed flexibly, and even learns in the process.
Digital employees improve your ROI
No more costs for recruiting and training new employees: By providing contextual information and guidance, the learning curve increases rapidly. The time until new colleagues can work productively on their own is drastically reduced. This decreases costs for recruiting and training new employees. Now each employee can complete any production at all times.
100 % quality assurance. Costs and errors are avoided before they even arise: By using AI-based analysis methods and real-time monitoring, digital assistance systems are able to detect errors directly and suggest corrective measures before they lead to costly production problems. This way, for example, anomalies are detected immediately, scrap rates are reduced, and costs are avoided before they even arise.
Respond agilely to market fluctuations at all times: Digital workers are masters in reducing reactivity times and implementing changes across entire productions. They can be quickly scaled or adapted to new tasks without the need for extensive training or retraining. Updated information is automatically communicated to employees by the shop floor assistant. This allows companies to respond more agile to market fluctuations and customer requirements, giving you a significant competitive advantage.
Maximum utilization and minimum downtime: Intelligent assistance systems help optimize the use of resources. By distributing tasks more efficiently and coordinating workflows better, production capacity is used optimally. This leads to higher capacity utilization and reduced downtime.
Why you should implement a digital employee:
Integrating digital workers into your manufacturing operations triggers a chain reaction that positively impacts your manufacturing efficiency and helps to alleviate the skills shortage. By digitizing the shop floor, companies increase their efficiency, productivity, product quality and consequently their ROI.
