Accelerating line associate training

Video-based training brings obvious benefits to manual assembly lines

Today’s constraint: Inefficient line associate training

Line associate training is at the heart of assembly line optimization.

But the experience hasn’t grown much richer or more effective in recent history: it remains a combination of classroom and on-the-line training, overseen by a trainer or supervisor, with non-trivial staffing requirements and opportunity costs.

Video is clearly a superior medium. But how do you make it happen?

There’s a reason that the best sports teams coach their athletes using instant replay.

It’s the same reason why people who need to learn a new household task — fixing a broken pipe, for example — look for lessons on YouTube.

It’s because video is the ideal medium for learning new tasks or refining your performance.

But it’s not easy to set up the infrastructure. AI-Powered Production does it for you: capturing the video from each station, transferring it to a central server, storing it, providing software for accessing and distributing it, and keeping it secure.

With this infrastructure, you can finally integrate video into your line associate training processes with a ready library of video content.

Users include:

  • Trainers for building classroom training content and preparing customized training using “side-by-side video”
  • Supervisors for using video as a learning tool on the line — think “instant replay”
  • Line associate to capture knowledge and share best practices
