In lean manufacturing lingo, "Gemba" is the shop floor, the place where the work happens, and the place where value is created (sometimes also referred to as the "place of truth"!). Gemba Systems' mission is to empower people on the shop floor with smarter technologies that support and enable better processes, resulting in higher productivity, better quality, and improved morale.
Gemba Systems supports manufacturing companies in the digitalization of their operations, especially focused on improving their manufacturing execution systems (MES).

We offer guidance, tools, and hands-on support in the selection and implementation of those industry 4.0 technologies that will best support our clients' most critical business processes, and the people who perform them.

During the 2018 South Carolina Manufacturing Conference and Expo, Gemba Systems invited visitors to take part in a survey about smart glasses on the shop floor.
The following white paper reviews in details the results that we have collected.
Introducing smart glasses as a key component in modern manufacturing environments help manufacturing to streamline production, reduce risk, improve quality and help to control costs. Equipped with effective smart glasses, your connected workforce makes fewer mistakes and completes tasks sooner, which means happier workers, better products, and improvements to your Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
