Maintain maximum levels of uptime

When a machine goes down, plant operators are on crunch time. Every hour can translate into hundreds to thousands of dollars per line.

Using Skylight on smart glasses, consumer packaged goods makers can run more efficient operations while increasing quality and reducing overall costs associated with unplanned downtime, maintenance and support. As manufacturers move toward more direct-to-consumer models, Skylight can help skill up warehouse operators, improving accuracy of picking to keep return levels down and customers happy.
