GlobalFoundries Transforms Training and New Technician Skill Adoption with PTC’s Vuforia Augmented Reality Solutions
Vuforia Enables GlobalFoundries to Use AR Experiences to Capture Expert Knowledge and Reduce Onboarding Times by Up to 50%
GF has implemented Vuforia to digitize standard operating procedures (SOPs) for training manuals and maintenance processes, improve remote expert assistance, and construct digital twins for powering AI engines. By combining the Vuforia Expert Capture™ productivity solution and Vuforia Studio™ authoring environment, GF can create digital training experiences with augmented reality which can be viewed through industry-leading devices such as Microsoft’s HoloLens 2 and RealWear’s HMT-1. This means the AR experiences can be used to raise the level of performance on the factory floors and drive better business outcomesfor workers at all levels, including the onboarding of new technicians, the training of existing technicians, and capturing expert knowledge from retiring workers.
“With a vision to change the semiconductor industry that’s changing the world, we are transforming every part of our workflow through the use of innovative technologies, including augmented reality. PTC’s Vuforia AR platform, which integrates point solutions, is a game-changer on this journey. Vuforia Expert Capture, for example, has quickly helped us set a new global standard for creating best-in-class SOPs to accelerate training and reduce variability at the source. With successful results already achieved from our initial roll-out, wherein we’ve seen up to a 50% reduction in training time, we look forward to capitalizing on other Vuforia-powered transformation initiatives in the future,” said Dr. DP Prakash, global head of innovation from the
“We are delighted to be supporting this visionary company’s digital transformation initiatives,” said
Through immersive interactions and guidance, Vuforia’s AR experiences enable workers to become skilled and productive in a fraction of the time of traditional training methods, enabling companies to increase workers’ effectiveness and productivity, improve production times, and reduce the risk of errors.
