The IIoT and Technical Communication in Action

There is a growing recognition that effective technical communication systems can significantly improve the usage, service, and maintenance of plant and equipment. For example, using HMI (human-machine interfaces) to help machine operators troubleshoot and fault-find. Or using machine-specific documentation delivered to a mobile device to reduce service and maintenance time by as much as 80%.
Meanwhile, many manufacturing companies see 30% or more of their turnover coming from after-sales service and parts. By linking Illustrated Parts Lists and IETMs to parts fulfillment systems, companies can secure additional significant additional revenue. Rik will give real-world examples and explore the best approaches to take.

In this session, attendees will learn:

  • The fundamentals of Documentation 4.0 and from real-world examples
  • The best practices for extending technical documentation
  • What has/hasn’t worked well & what is possible. For example, how has a global manufacturer of industrial looming equipment reduced downtime by empowering operators via HMIs.
