AGCO, the Jackson, Minnesota-based manufacturer of agricultural equipment, announced in a statement that the use of Glass-assisted reality wearables has increased workers’ productivity and accuracy while performing complex assemblies.
Introduced as a tool to help employees, AGCO reports that Glass wearable use has led to a 50% reduction in new employee training time and a 30% reduction in task processing.
AGCO’s Director of Business Process Improvement Peggy Gulick said that the use of smart glasses in employee development is highly effective, particularly for new hire training, multi-operational concepts and new product launches.
