CHAPTER 5 WHO ARE USING AUGMENTED REALITY From manufacturing to real estate from e-commerce to retail shop almost everyone is using it. Let’s check one by one: Companies will use AR to visualize what they are building and manufacturing. This allows prototyping with a high degree of knowledge of the product from the beginning of the process hence facilitating decision making and correct- ing errors in the initial stages of the process. INDUSTRY MANUFACTURING AND ARCHITECTURE From simulations for the cure of diseases to the simulation of virtual worlds with millions of people creating services the use of AR will focus on the creation of environments for the simulation of complex situations. PUBLIC SERVICES

slide 14:

It will have a high impact on the future of retail by allowing companies to understand the behavior of consumers and the acquisi- tion and consumption of products in their different variants. PUBLIC SERVICES It will allow the candidates to live virtually for a time in the company so that both parties can analyze if the fit would be effective. It will also allow companies to carry out selection tests for profession- als from a new perspective by enabling selection through telepresence and posing tests of knowledge and skills with a completely different perspective. TALENT MANAGEMENT

slide 15:

A segment of consumers will prefer the immersive experience of buying in person which is why it will encourage large online retailers to try to fill this gap. E-COMMERCE AND EXPERIENTIAL MARKETING The use of this technology will reduce the need for physical presence in an organization to improve interaction and communication between the members of a team customers and suppliers BUSINESS MANAGEMENT The 3-Dimensional capacity offered by AR tech- nology will increase the capabilities and opportu- nities of management by manipulation and remote INDUSTRIAL MAINTENANCE THROUGH REMOTE ACTION The use of this technology will reduce the need for physical presence in an organization to improve interaction and communication between the members of a team customers and suppliers LEARNING AND TRAINING action in the area through drone control in high-risk environments. It will also help in the execution of actions in locations with limited access for the maintenance of machinery and equipment. You have seen that Augmented Reality has started showing its significance in almost every field. Now you have to analyze how people from these fields are getting benefits or how they are utilizing their goodness in their business.

slide 16:

Logistics is a customer-centric business that wants to allure customers with fast reliable secure and accurate services. Faster and accurate access to information becomes crucial for precise planning and overall operation is very critical for enhanced customer experience. Augmented Reality in Logistics is about to revamp the infrastructure via easing the overall process. From highly innovative warehous- ing management system to safe transporting to effective supply chain manage- ment everything becomes easy to optimize. Now Logistics has ditched the age-old manual operations and is stepping into augmented reality-based operations. Logistics is a complex industry which mainly includes four key steps in the opera- tion model: Warehouse operations Transportation delivery and after-sales service. Augmented Reality in logistics is bringing a revolution in these four ways: CHAPTER 6 HOW AUGMENTED REALITY IS BEING USED IN LOGISTICS Warehouse operations include mainly sorting of products and retrieving the right product. This can be a very tricky job. A huge warehouse can be a tricky place to locate a particular item. Given that most of the workers in a warehouse are tempo- rary the traditional use of paper and pen is slow and prone to errors. AUGMENTED REALITY IN LOGISTICS RECREATES WAREHOUSING

slide 17:

Augmented Reality comes handy by providing a 3D image of the warehouse and can show the product that the person has been looking for. Eventually it can reduce time consumption and takes away the possibility of error. Transportation improvements have played a crucial role in the development of the Logistics Industry. Items from the warehouse are shipped to various hubs for the final delivery of the product. The delivery of the products to the various hubs is done and verified using paper and pen. This can be a tedious job. Moreover it can lead to confusion and is vulnerable to mishaps. Augmented Reality in Logistics can come in handy by having a 3D illustration of the way to pack items in the truck from the warehouse. Additionally it can help in deliver- ing the right products using 3D imaging. This saves time and makes the process efficient. Also Augmented Reality can replace the current navigation system by showing a 3D view of the routes ahead thus helping the driver to choose the right path to avoid traffic and make the travel a smooth experience. This saves cost to a great extent. TRANSPORTATION IS BECOMING MORE ACCURATE AND SAFER Surveys suggest that delivery men spend 60 of their time not driving as they are busy checking which product to deliver next. Augmented reality can help in making this efficient. With the help of AR delivery personnel can choose the next prod- uct to deliver using 3D imaging. Additionally this can replace the tedious process of using a paper and the time-consuming work of scanning the bar codes on the product to identify the right product. AR MAKES BOTH CUSTOMERS AND DELIVERY PERSON STRESS-FREE

slide 18:

Augmented Reality can be useful in intelligent loading of products according to the route of delivery personnel consequently making work done by the personnel stress-free and efficient. Another benefit of Augmented Reality is the security it provides. It can scan the person who accepts the delivery to make sure that the right person is receiving the product.

slide 19:

The era of Augmented Reality is here. From entertainment to business almost every walk of life has been greatly affected by Augmented Reality and there is a lot of scope for AR in the future. Moreover there is a bouquet of benefits for Augmented Reality in Manufacturing and Production Manufacturing Industry as well. As the manufacturing industry increases its adoption of AR it will get many benefits such as: CHAPTER 7 HOW AUGMENTED REALITY IS REVAMPING MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY Enhanced Productivity AR has become an innovative way to explain anything and makes every- one understand the process scenario etc. Additionally the pace of work has increased to upwards of 30 as compared to when AR is not involved and thus enhances productivity. An example could be training people through AR which reduces the learning curve of new employees. Both AR and VR could be used for this purpose depending upon the spe- cific use case Save money AR is affecting the speed of work and production figure and is eventually bringing more money in less time. For instance At Ford designers were using multiple clay models in designing process which are now being replaced with mixed reality HoloLens and one physical model only. The clay models were expensive and time-consuming to develop. Moreover earlier designers needed to work for several days with those models. Now they are taking only a few hours with these technologies

slide 20:

Here are some of the use cases of augmented reality applications in design and manufacturing: Augmented Reality plays an important role in product designing and development. The dynamic nature of AR assists in creating digital designs without having to create them physically. Thus it makes the overall process simple easy to access less time consuming and comfortable as the product does not have to be physical- ly created unless it is finalized. AR IMPROVES THE PRODUCT DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT PROCESS 1 One of the biggest issues is to put the newcomers in manufacturing units directly. They are beginners and are unaware of the procedures protocols and equipment that may lead to safety hindrance. To maintain the safety protocols and to avoid any treacherous activity AR describes everything to the novice and enables them to understand the overall process. They will get information about the important ter- minologies of their job including how what when and why. 3D models of equipment and machines play a crucial role in training. Its applica- tions become broader and enable the remote trainee to get training anywhere across the world. The training approach saves time space cost manpower and many more while providing detailed practical training to the layman ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND TRAINING BECOMES SIMPLER 2

slide 21:

In a product manufacturing process you can find any error or defect with AR pow- ered devices. With such equipment you can save a lot of time effort and money during the manufacturing process and even get products with minimum errors. EASY TO ELIMINATE DEFECTS IN PRODUCT MANUFACTURING 3 The management crew can now know which equipment requires servicing or warn you about any potential issues. Moreover to keep a record of last service date and recall it at the exact time is not easy. Augmented Reality in manufacturing enlight- ens you not only with the operation time and potential failure but also with the requirement of service AUGMENTED REALITY IN MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY MAKES MAINTENANCE EASIER 4 ASSEMBL Y TASK BECOMES EASIER 5 With Augmented Reality application at the manufacturing unit you will be able to visualize the parts of the equipment and their details to assemble with 3D hologram instructions. It also provides all the information about the steps required for the manufacturing and designing process. Augmented reality in the manufacturing industry has a broad capability. AR powered tools and equipment used during the entire product life cycle will be very beneficial. Along with the process enhancement benefits its use includes cost-effectiveness time-saving scalability and is completely worthy to give a try in the production line.

slide 22:

Augmented reality is changing the way people do business. 3D objects virtually placed via user’s mobile devices can add layers of experiences and makes them engage more with your product or service. This enhances the process at every stage from pre-sales to sales to post-sales. technology helps to strengthen the brand and consumer relationship. Here are 15 key ways augmented reality is trans- forming the customer experience as well as marketing experience: CHAPTER 8 HOW IT IS HELPING IN ATTRACTING CUSTOMERS IN VARIOUS FIELDS Augmented Reality helps you to showcase every minute detail about a particular product. It can also show fun visuals about the product the manufacturing details and other relevant information. For instance purchasing a smartphone will be easy as it gives a larger window to compare it with other similar products in real time. This gives an immersive shopping experience. HELPS IN PRESENTATION OF IN-DEPTH DETAILS OF THE PRODUCT 1 LET CUSTOMERS FIND PRODUCTS MATCHING CURRENT TRENDS 2

slide 23:

Augmented Reality shopping can help customers interact with current trends. Now customers can view which of their friends have liked the particular product they are about to buy. This allows customers to buy with confidence and be social- ly acceptable among friends. Augmented reality will be very helpful in retail shopping. Customers can check out the positioning of appliances and furniture in their house before purchasing them. This way the furniture can be viewed in real life as to how much space it occupies and whether it matches the interiors or not. It helps in easy decision making. ASSURES CUSTOMERS ABOUT THEIR SHOPPING 3 Trying before purchase helps in making the right decision. A haircut can be tried beforehand to make sure that it looks good on you. Clothes can be tried before purchasing. Trying clothes physically usually takes a lot of time and can be unsan- itary. Augmented Reality aids in getting a 360-degree view of the dress the cus- tomer is trying. They can also try thousands of lipsticks by just swiping through the menu using their smartphone’s camera. This makes shopping a lot easier and saves lots of time as well. REVAMP TRIAL METHOD WHILE PURCHASING PRODUCTS 4

slide 24:

Augmented Reality user manuals can be very useful when compared to the textual manuals. This can help in the effective and successful installation of the device or appliance. It also explains about the working of the product in a far better way. Simultaneously it supports the environment by saving paper. AUGMENTED REALITY REDEFINES THE USER MANUALS 5 Post-sale support is the most important aspect of the shopping experience and has evolved a lot. Servicing of products after sales will become hassle-free. Now a person can do it himself through AR manuals or a professional can assist him remotely. This makes the process easy and time efficient. MAKES POST SALES HASSEL FREE 6 Companies especially tech companies can get more out of new technology. They can demonstrate effectively to their customers as to how their products will meet their end goal. AR will be responsible for saving time optimizing brand awareness and improving sales. INCRESES BRAND AWARENESS 7

slide 25:

The technology will be very helpful in service or product demonstration to the client. Business can explain to their clients more clearly about their approach and process. Prior to this even after the best explanation there used to be some ambi- guity in thoughts. But AR removes the barrier with 3D demonstration and can clear the misunderstanding precisely. IMPROVES KPI’s DEMONSTRATION 8 Business can get to know what others rivals are doing in the industry. They will also get the complete acknowledgment of how their consumers are using and accepting the AR experience. This would be valuable in the testing process for any business. LET BUSINESSES KNOW WHAT THEIR COMPETITORS ARE DOING 9 AR has the potential to boost operational efficiency and thus customer service. It can better consolidate data even from multiple sources project server monitoring metrics and analytics along with data navigation into the data center environment. It would drive efficiency for server administrators working on the data center. IMPROVES DATA CENTRE OPERATIONS 10

slide 26:

Whether you have a meeting with the potential investors or potential customers you have to show your capabilities to convince them with your best. You can uproar in their minds with the best presentation style. Making an image or graph come alive from your screen can make a huge difference. HELPS YOU IMPRESS CLIENTS /INVESTORS WITH IMPRESSIVE PRESENTATION 11 If your business belongs to the architecture industry augmented reality will make in-progress tours super easy. Customers can get to see what you are planning with every detail such as precise color and materials. AMAZE YOUR CUSTOMERS WITH VIRTUAL TOURS 12 Augmented reality provides an efficient and inexpensive way to create a 3D replica of any product. It will drive more engagement with your products. For instance with AR goggles a person can see the technology upgrades and interior finishing of a car. AR makes him feel as if he is really sitting inside the car. COMPELS AUDIENCE WITH 3D REPLICA 11

slide 27:

Augmented reality helps businesses to define a tactful and compelling strategy. Right now retailers and few others are taking advantage of AR. But it is open to all. By adding creativity and ideas anyone can reach new heights in business. PROVIDES NEW OPTIONS FOR STRATEGY 12 Augmented Reality is gaining prominence in the consumer market. Shopping experiences are about to change forever. It improves the relationship between brands and consumers during and post-sale of a product. The mentioned utilities are just the beginning of the benefits of Augmented Reality. The future of Aug- mented Reality holds a lot of promise. PROVIDES BUSINESS A ROOM FOR MANOEUVRE 11
