According to Wikipedia, a new normal is a state to which an economy, society, etc. settles following a crisis when this differs from the situation that prevailed prior to the start of the crisis. Today, we cannot say for certain what the ‘new normal’ will look like post-pandemic. What we do know, however, is that the current crisis is neither the first nor the last that this world will need to overcome and that we must continue nurturing our ability to prepare and quickly adapt to future unforeseen situations.
Currently, many enterprises are struggling with how to simultaneously keep their processes safe and productive, while at the same time reducing travel and maintaining strict social distancing requirements, whether in the offices, production facilities or out in the field.
So then, what are some critical questions enterprises should be asking?
The evolution of Virtual Reality (VR) and Extended Reality (XR) technology has taken off at the speed of light in recent years. Even though we can’t provide full Star Trek holodeck experiences (yet!), the possibility of creating highly realistic virtual representations of products and industrial processes is very much a reality. And this is not just true just for visual realism but also in terms of simulating the physics and system behaviors, as well as enabling highly realistic interaction between humans and the virtual world.
VR/XR based solutions are ready for deployment and integration into the business processes of extended enterprises. By integrating these solutions, enterprises can virtually communicate, explore, validate, and resolve critical challenges in the product design, production, or maintenance processes, while augmenting and even replacing physical tests, prototypes, or in-person instructor-lead operator training.
Now is a crucial time to ask yourself what your company could achieve if you had access to highly realistic Immersive Workspaces for your teams, offering them safe and remote collaboration to support product & process definition and communication, while effectively emulating a Virtual Product Representation, a Virtual Assembly Line, and a Virtual Service Center.
Imagine being able to provide your company and teams with:
The good news is that solutions like this already exist and can support your business in achieving these standards.
Let’s all learn to shift by growing from our experiences so that we are equipped to face our current and future challenges.
Stay safe and productive!
