The days of a cumbersome, paper-based approach to inspections, audits, and quality checks is over. Routine but critical processes like inspections are benefiting from advanced applications such as the augmented reality (AR) enabled work-instruction platform, Manifest, from Taqtile. The Manifest enterprise SaaS platform is digitizing complex inspection processes, delivering more accountable methods for tracking inspection results and data, and enabling efficient resolution processes.
The need for on-site inspections of all types – maintenance, compliance, quality, regulatory, production, safety – is a critical factor to ensure the ongoing operation and performance of companies in the industrial sector. With Manifest, organizations and their deskless workers can access a consistent, traceable system via iPad or head mounted display for tracking any step of an inspection of a specific piece of equipment or facility.
Inspection processes conducted with Manifest, whether at a single plant or facilities around the world, generate valuable data that can be analyzed in reports, or archived for compliance or future review. Key components of the Manifest system include built-in fault reporting, capturing of completion evidence, and creation of detailed work logs. Manifest fault reports can also integrate with other enterprise applications to initiate review and resolution processes for compliance and continuous improvement initiatives.
The availability of real-time expert guidance through the Manifest platform is of paramount importance for ensuring the gathered data is consistent and reliable. With Manifest, 3D content can be overlayed on equipment to highlight the precise location of issues or areas of concern. Pictures and videos can even be captured then viewed remotely by experts to better assist frontline workers. See-what-I-see video can also be shared in real-time to facilitate remote collaboration with organization experts.
Repetitive yet critical processes benefit from digitization via the Manifest platform such as the processes of conducting audits, compliance assessments, and quality checks. Procedures can be completed more accurately and more consistently across teams and geographies. Any issues identified during the completion of these routines can be flagged and tracked for immediate or future resolution, and results and evidence of completion are captured and stored in a uniform format that is easily archived and reviewed.
