Video Insurance; a way to store Video Work Instructions for later use
by Desiree Schnoor
Video work instructions are setting the tone for U.S. manufactures by revitalizing the way their technicians and managers are able to do their jobs. Workers learn better, faster and cheaper and managers are able to hire and train more workers faster, and better. Video work instructions harness the knowledge of skilled technicians, reproducing what they know and how they do tasks for both new and existing employees to view and reproduce. Consequently, one of the most important and often urgent need for Video Work Instructions is preventing the knowledge and experience of skilled technicians disappearing with a worker. This is especially true for companies with soon-retiring senior technicians.
Virtual QE is now offering Video Insurance, options for companies who would like to record and store their Video Work Instructions for use in the near future.
The first option, consists of a monthly fee for storing a company’s completed Video Work Instruction until they are ready to implement at their facility. This option offers the higher monthly charge of the two options; however the video instruction implementation price is established and locked in at the time of your commitment.
Similarly, the second option consists of a monthly fee for storing your completed Video Work Instruction until you are ready to implement at your facility, and costs less monthly. This option is not price locked, so when you are ready to implement, your price will be whatever current market pricing is at that time.
Who might take advantage of Video Insurance now so they can implement Video Work Instructions in the near future? Companies that don’t currently have an expert employed but are looking for one. They might not yet have someone working in a task that is an expert, or their expert might have retired or quit before they had a chance to record his or her skill. Those who lack an expert technician don’t have anyone to record the task, therefore cannot make a video work instruction at this time.
Secondly, growing companies working on contract basis would have already built all costs into projected profits, so purchasing Video Work Instructions now would eat into their profit margins. It would make most financial sense for them to wait until next big project.
Also, companies with tight cash flow margins on products would have difficulty justifying the purchase of Video Work Instructions right now. Similarity, it may not be the right time yet for companies that are doing short runs of different parts.
