Supported by Gemba Systems Inc., SANY America implemented the Proceedix digital instruction and inspection execution platform. As a result, SANY America’s quality inspectors no longer need to waste time printing and retrieving paper inspection sheets.
Instead, they now have all the right and up-to-date inspection procedures at their immediate disposal - digitally. Instead of holding paper and pen, while climbing in and out of excavators, they can record inspection results hands-free using Google Glasses.
Any quality issues can be documented -including pictures, videos and comments- in a matter of seconds, and communicated instantly. Inspection reports are generated automatically, and custom dashboards show historical performance with powerful drill-down capabilities, enabling focused continuous improvement activities.
"Digitizing our quality inspections
with Proceedix resulted in over 70% of time savings and in a significant improvement of our quality performance."
Quality Manager, SANY America
Avenger Aerospace Solutions has announced the release of “Avenger Fleet VU (AFV)”, a remote engineering and certification assistance service using Remote eye® Technical Assistance and Vuzix M300XL smart glasses. This solution, provided by Gemba Systems Inc., will allow mechanics on the hangar floor to access engineering and certification resources at Avenger’s Greenville SC facility without the need for expensive travel. It’s just like having on-site engineering and certification support, but at a fraction of the cost.

Yes, that’s Google Glass on her frames. But she’s not using it to check her Facebook, dictate messages, or capture a no-hand video while riding a roller coaster. Heather is a 30-year-old factory worker in rural Jackson, Minnesota. For her, Glass is not a hip way to hang apps in front of her eyeballs, but a tool—as much a tool as her power wrenches.
It walks her through her shifts at Station 50 on the factory floor, where she builds motors for tractors.
