Manufacturing is set for the next era of revolution and XR is going to be the key driver

Manufacturing is set for the next era of revolution and XR is going to be the key driver Traditional manufacturing and industrial practices are in the phase of a major transformation spanning the entire manufacturing/production cycle and value creation processes in the name of Industry 4.0. It creates manufacturing systems that are interconnected, communicates, analyse, and use the information to drive further intelligent action. At the heart of this transformation is a combination of cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things (IoT), and extended reality (XR). Immersive technologies of VR, AR, and MR can be applied across all industries evolving with Industry 4.0, with many of the biggest leaps likely coming from the manufacturing sector, finding a wide range of opportunities in maximizing productivity from maintenance, training, sales & marketing, safety compliance to ensure simplified work procedures from Field Technician Solutions to Marketing Solutions and what not. XR can help developers and engineers communicate during each stage of the design process in real-time, helping the teams stay on the same page, reducing errors that could cost the company, and thereby reducing the product development cycle. XR technologies provide powerful, largely unexplored application areas in Industry 4.0, that will revolutionize the way we work, collaborate, and live our lives.

Give employees games to play, to make them better at work!

How Gamification Improves Employee Productivity In this era of work from home and social distancing, don’t you think our employees are less connected with each other and socially inept? Well, we can’t do anything about physical distancing for now, but definitely something about bringing our employees together to “PLAY”!! Games are our employees’ guilty pleasure at work. Could we make them play at work hours to take the guilt apart and enhance productivity? Gamification serves the purpose! The term “Gamification “is bringing in the fun elements of game into their routine work. It uses positive reinforcement to motivate our employees to do their daily tasks. Rewarding the best employee at the end of the month or year-end appraisal is so outdated. What motivates them is instant rewarding for their daily tasks. Gamifying everyday tasks or problems helps to engage our team and motivate them to do well and stay connected. This gives them a heightened sense of purpose in the company and have a clearer idea of their progress or achievements.  What they get as the outcome is what they crave the most; a sense of personal achievement and what you get in return is improved productivity and employee engagement on daily basis without having to nose around.

An estimated 50% of patients with chronic diseases do not follow the prescribed treatment. Gamified health tracking creates an environment that keeps the patient from straying from the appropriate therapy path.

Gamification in Healthcare Boosts Positive Health Motivation If you track your calorie intake by logging in your daily diet or counting your daily steps, you are already being gamified. ‘Gamification in healthcare’ is defined generally as the use of game design elements in boosting positive health motivation. Its application in healthcare is much more diverse than just tracking your water and food intake. Not taking their medicines on time is a widespread problem in older patients and children. In the case of life-threatening diseases, it becomes extra important to solve this. A game where the disease is envisioned as a ‘rogue robot’ which has to be defeated using ‘pill guns’ and ‘antibiotic-bomb’ can improve the treatment adherence rates, and also increase the patients’ self-efficacy - confidence that the disease can be defeated. Gamification can also help children forget they are undergoing medical treatment, and teach them responsibility for their health. Games can be made to educate younger hemophilia, diabetics, and cancer patients about the importance of adhering to their treatment plans.
