TeamViewer, a provider of remote connectivity and workplace digitalization solutions, announced that the global semiconductor manufacturer GlobalFoundries (GF) has deployed TeamViewer’s Augmented Reality (AR) platform Frontline for its warehouse operations at its facility in Dresden, Germany. The company said this deployment looks to provide up to 25% faster execution of warehouse processes, better employee ergonomics, a picking error rate close to zero and a reduction in waste of around 100,000 paper sheets per year.
At the GF warehouse, the software guides the warehouse workers through the picking process with clear step-by-step instructions that are displayed on smart glasses directly in their field of view. Together with the integrated voice control, it provides hands-free information to the workers, replacing the former paper-based process.
“At GF, we always strive to improve our operational efficiencies to better fulfill our customers’ needs,” said Kevin Hidalgo, senior director of logistics at GF. “When looking for a solution to digitally transform and improve our warehouse operations, we found that an augmented reality-based solution could really make a difference for us. With the rollout of TeamViewer Frontline, we were able to take efficiency, accuracy and sustainability of warehouse logistics to a whole new level.”
“Around 80% of the global workforce is not working at a desk, but in manufacturing, production, logistics or field service,” said Jan Junker, executive vice president at TeamViewer. “With our AR solutions, enterprises have the first-time opportunity to also digitalize the tasks and processes from these areas and seamlessly connect the workers to the company’s existing digital infrastructure. The benefits that GlobalFoundries achieved in such short time speak for themselves.”
TeamViewer said the end-to-end implementation of TeamViewer Frontline in the warehouse of GF’s Dresden facility was completed in only 10 weeks. TeamViewer is free of charge for private use, it has 620,000 subscribers.
