(Keynote) Wearable Wars: Sensing a disturbance in the force
Wearables have been pervasive in the Enterprise warehouse space for over 20 years providing productivity enhancements in picking, packing and sorting environments. Zebra Technologies has been at the core of this revolution from the very beginning.  The category has been growing at unprecedented rates recently due to a host of changing supply chain dynamics ushered in by the e-commerce revolution. Additionally, we have more connectivity and information at our fingertips then every before, the digital universe or the data that makes up the internet will increase by ten times over the next four years. What if wearable is no longer a category but a new experience, a new form of computing entirely, the new way in which we interact with the digital world just as smartphones and tablets have done to the desktop computing eras? Buckle in because the internet of things, cognitive computing and wearable form-factors are about to come together to create the next wave in digital/human interaction and we’re just getting started.

(Case Study) Google Glass on the Manufacturing Floor – The AGCO Story

Benefits of Google Glass in operation management systems and processes:

Safety – allows for 4-point contact, freeing of hands

Quality – insures complex and infrequent instructions are easily accessible with step-by-step guiding; insures checkpoints are completed, imaged, stored and available “real-time” for trending and audit

Productivity – using eye winks, finger taps, voice, beacons and single device documenting (photo and response) shows gains in processing time and efficiency; reduced wait times for solutions; one-time mobile login

Profit – reduced/eliminated cost of errors – first time right; reduced admin time

 

Organizational value:

  • Quality Factory inspections (checklists)
  • Paint Standard Work and Job Element Instructions
  • Assembly Instructions
  • Weld Control Data
  • Field Services streaming diagnostics
  • Warehouse Material Picking/Receiving
  • Training

(Case Study) Taking the Right Path to AR Deployment
Many organizations understand the great potential of next-gen, see-through AR technology, and many are eager to deploy it. But some are overlooking the realities of major technology transitions. Setting the stage for see-through AR deployment is a complex and lengthy process that involves extensive infrastructure upgrades. Rather than taking a single leap and resigning themselves to negative ROI in the near term, some organizations are taking an incremental approach—one that facilitates the transition to next-gen AR technology while delivering positive ROI today.

C'EST WHAT? Leveraging Mindful Design for Innovation
Michael Perman believes that innovation is the ability to perceive alternative realities and the courage to move toward them.  In this presentation, you'll learn about the "source code" for innovation through understanding what people crave, what concerns them and what brings them comfort.  You'll also learn about the linkage of innovation and neuroscience, understanding the role of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, cortisol and oxytocin.  Learn new ways to transform teams and organizations to invent the future.

(Opening Keynote) The Enterprise Wearables Journey

Wearable devices — and the apps, software, and services that make those wearables truly valuable — are changing the way workers do their jobs and how consumers manage their lives. Unlike the smartphone and tablet revolutions, wearables constitute a long tail of disparate devices: For example, smart glasses and smart clothing offer completely different functionalities, user interfaces, and use cases.

In this speech, J. P. will offer a big picture framework for thinking about adoption of wearables in the enterprise. He'll also offer pointed examples and case studies. The talk will answer key questions about enterprise wearables, including:

  • What is the current interest level among enterprise decision-makers in adopting wearables?
  • What are the drivers and inhibitors of wearable adoption?
  • How are different deployment models -- business-to-employee (B2E), business-to-business-to-consumer (B2B2C, like Disney's Magic Band) -- relevant to enterprises today?
  • What are the key technologies (smart glasses, AR/VR, smart clothing, fitness tracking, others) that are relevant to enterprises, and why?
  • What are the business impacts of adopting wearable technology?

(Case Study) Enhancing today, and Creating the Future State of AEC industry – How VR/AR + Wearable Technologies are helping transform Design, Construction and Operations of the built environment

Technology disruption is now commonplace in many industries, including the AEC industry.  We’ve evolved from paper to digital, from 2D CAD to 3D BIM, and now from perceiving a space to now experiencing a space leveraging VR/AR and wearable technologies.  How does that impact project outcomes or the key stakeholders of the projects we work on?  How do today’s enhancements to design, construction or operations provide us with insights to what the future can or should look like?  Below are some of the topics we will explore through real project case studies and investigations of what tomorrow could look like for the AEC industry.

 

Design: Improving Decisions through Immersive technologies – moving from single-player to multi-player experiences

 

Construction: Improving safety awareness – Stop looking down at your mobile device and look up at the data enriched site

 

Operations: Improving end user interaction with facility data to drive operational efficiencies – internet of things meets digital building systems

 

We are constantly evolving and are on the cusp of a whole new consumer level VR/AR boom.
