ABB Ability™ Augmented Field Procedures
People make mistakes. And when they do, the impact is felt in safety, in efficiency, in productivity and sustainability.
ABB Ability™ Augmented Field Procedures uses the power of integrated networked technology to eliminate mistakes from industrial processes of all kinds and systematize consistent correct procedures, leading directly to measurable gains in safety and efficiency, boosting productivity and cutting costs.
Procedures are centrally maintained and made available to operators via tablet or mobile on demand, giving them a clear, interactive step-by-step guide, every step of the way, through startup, shutdown and regular day-to-day activities.
Automatic data capture provides comprehensive records of exactly what took place, including lessons to be learned and system improvements to be incorporated into the central resource, and systematized for the future.
And with the addition of a HoloLens augmented reality headset, the system becomes a powerful interactive hands-free training tool.
