No one can deny that time and experience equal expertise, and all those years, days and moments along the way are what shape what we really “know". But what if there was a way to expedite the time and experience needed for the same, or better results? Video Work Instructions perform like a canon that speeds over the time and experience chasm and lands firmly in solid results. Virtual QE is taking this concept to the manufacturing industry with applications for new hires, veteran technicians and managers alike.
Manufacturing new hires are reaping the super-speed benefits of Video Work Instructions from the very beginning. Video and its effects revamps everything from their selection, hiring, training, productivity, work perceptions and job satisfaction. Video also allows expert technicians the platform and flexibility to record, store and disseminate their expertise for the benefit of an unlimited number of employees, an unlimited number of times.
Managers can trace increases in labor availability, standardized best practices, quality and on time delivery, reduced turnover and even improvements to the auditing process to Video Work Instructions. Video Instructions have been used to chronicle how to perform periodic tasks, that only happen every few years, or to capture information pertinent to management and HR personnel and policy changes.
