How virtual reality works in manufacturing industry

Among the best uses of virtual reality are VR models with a full range of enterprise products and a virtual consultant for the manufacturing industry.

Use case: participation in any exhibitions all over the world

If you have a small stand but want to exhibit a wide range of products regardless their size use a VR headset. The viewer moves to virtual spaces of any area where any objects can be placed in full size. The virtual guide tells him about the enterprise products.

Additional advantage: application of virtual reality technologies at the exhibition allows guaranteeing the audience’s increased attention to the exhibition booth. Thus, with minimal financial costs, the manufacturing enterprise can participate in all the profile exhibitions held anywhere in the world.

Use case: Training and presentations

Direction: training and safety

  • The oil and gas sector
  • Hazardous production
  • Responsible production
  • Disparate production facilities or facilities requiring unified control

Explanation: According to the results of studies, human learning in virtual reality increases by 40%. Agree, the figure is colossal. Adding the fact that in virtual reality it is possible to recreate any objects and any scenarios of learning through action – we get the ideal tool for learning and practising actions in the event of occurrence of those or other situations.

Example: Network of gas stations. Each employee of the filling station undergoes preliminary training, where he should learn the location of the elements of the filling station, the schematic arrangement of the tanks, etc. Also, in theory, the employee learns the order of actions in the event of occurrence of those or other emergency situations. Also, the employee receives chambers of theoretical information about possible violations at the gas station and their possible consequences.

Think for a minute about the following statistics based on the results of independent publicly available and well-known studies:

According to the research data, people remember
10% of what they read,
20% of what they hear,
30% of what they see,
50% of what they see and hear at the same time,
70% of what they tell (discuss),
80% of what they do,
90% of what they do and tell at the same time.

According to another study: in the real emergency, people in 80% of cases forget everything they’ve studied before during the safety training. To avoid that, VR models help to create the conditions as close to reality as possible.
