Parker Meggitt manufactures innovative technologies, products and services for the Aerospace, Defence and Energy markets. They wanted to replace their paper-based systems with a solution that would improve how manufacturing collected critical information to satisfy rigorous Aerospace regulations.
As part of this, Parker Meggitt wanted to integrate digital technologies into its operations and processes to boost productivity.
Using VisualFactory’s Digital Work Instructions, complex parts are assembled by Parker Meggitt’s skilled technicians whilst efficiently collecting the information that regulators require. Replacing the traditional paper-based systems has increased productivity and allowed the operators to focus on the critical aspects of building the products.
Parker Meggitt has connected its test equipment and inspection tools to the same ecosystem to drive further improvements in productivity. Augmented reality adds another dimension, enabling operators to work with a digital overlay to what they are seeing in the physical world and to interact with colleagues across its global factories.
There are many more opportunities for us to integrate digital technologies into our operations and processes, as we continue to investigate possibilities we are driving fundamental change, both in how we operate and how we deliver value to our customers.
