VT defense manufacturers invited to try new technologies for training and maintenance

Wed, 04/28/2021 - 10:49am -- tim

Vermont Business Magazine The New England Regional Defense Industry Collaboration (NERDIC) kicked off an Industry 4.0 series of workshops to support competitive advantages and growth of our regional defense supply chain. 

In the first of the Tuesday noontime webinars, Stanley X, in partnership with DeepHow, shared their AI-powered solution to capture, train and transfer knowledge among skilled workers. 

This system allows documentation of standard work of high performing, subject matter expert employees, converting into Smart how-to videos for staff to learn from and reference using standard enterprise tools and no special equipment or skills. This process is easy to use, accessible readily in multiple languages, and reduces training time and improves performance. If you missed this webinar, you may view the recording at this link.  

And on April 27, representatives from SphereGen Technologies walked attendees through a live demonstration on how augmented reality can expedite training and onboarding, standardize work and procedures for employees, improve remote troubleshooting and reduce travel to physical locations with virtual tools.  This webinar recording can be viewed at this link

For these Industry 4.0 technology workshops, NERDIC is offering 12 free licenses to try the software for 60 days, and they hope to have participating defense supply chain companies representing all the New England States.  Applications will be accepted until close of business, Tuesday May 4. There will be a program planning kickoff call on May 12, and a go live training on May 17 with access and supports through July 2. To apply for these or any of the upcoming demonstration technology pilots, visit this link
