Digital assistant for multi-variant assembly tasks

The ActiveAssist assistance system is revolutionizing the manual workstation and moving the focus of Industry 4.0 towards people. At the heart of ActiveAssist is freely configurable software that supports employees with targeted information and help functions and intelligently guides them through the assembly process. This means that there is nothing standing in the way of multi-variant assembly tasks down to batch size 1. Intuitive to use and completely connected, the assistance system increases process reliability and quality.
