Our guest for this edition of #TheRobotIndustryPodcast is Kyle O'Reilly from VKS. They digitize work instructions. VKS is an industry 4.0 software platform that helps companies that assemble and have high-mix, medium volume assembly automation.
We talk about best processes, quality, productivity, real-time manual assembly, training, managing talent, and bottlenecks in high-mix contract manufacturing.
VKS built the software tool themselves because of their needs in their sister company CMP, which manufactures a wide range of metal-based products. They needed to document processes to improve quality, get rid of work instruction binders and PowerPoint.
VKS software is intuitive to use. It shows step-by-step instructions of whatever they need to build. Think real pictures, videos, sketches. It is used in all kinds of industries, universities, around the world.
Trends in the industry: trends to industry 4.0, adoption of technologies, scalable software, digital IoT, digitization, companies are turning away from paper for scale as a cost of doing business.
