Challenge
During the peak of production, Remeha has a big flexible workforce. Now they have a big challenge how to train the staff as quickly as possible so they can work independently on a moving production line. During a single shift approximately 400 tzerra boilers are produced on a moving production line. When, at the end of the line, a worker has not finished his boiler the whole production line has to stop leading to less produced finished goods. Currently, Remeha works with a couple of trainers who guide new staff, this is labor intensive and every trainer has their way of explaining how to work. Remeha is looking for a tool to assure assembly staff is well-trained before starting working on the actual production line.  

Solution

Recreate has created 2 apps for Remeha to train new staff better dan ever before! First Recreate created a smartphone app with a 3D viewer, visually explaining the assembly steps. When a new temporary worker is hired, they get access to this app that already trains them before the on-site at Remeha. During the first day in Apeldoorn, the new staff will be trained with a HoloLens 2 in a training room. A real Tzerra boiler is fitted to the wall and by using the HoloLens 2 the new hire will be explained how to assemble the boiler. The last step is an “exam” with a timer per step to simulate the real process as well as possible. When the new hire passed this examen he/she is granted to go to the production hall and start assembling boilers. Training people like this will result in fewer production line standstills and everybody is training in the same way.
