Every year, the company carries out several tests on materials in more than 700 plants with the aim of ensuring high-quality standards. Most of these tests, which are often to be performed in geographically remote locations, require the physical presence of a supervisor on site, thus causing possible inefficiencies in terms of time, travel costs and management of a limited number of resources available. For this reason, our customer required a solution to perform remote inspections and quality checks on suppliers’ materials.
In order to enhance the efficiency while performing and monitoring inspection activities, Enel chose to deploy SPACE1, since it allows to perform remote quality checks on materials by relying on Augmented Reality. The implementation of such innovative technology has enabled the electric utility to carry out several inspection activities, such as factory acceptance tests, audit of manufacturing processes and staff training through wearable devices and tablets.
