VIOLET AI
VIOLET AI is a smart system that uses cameras and sensors to capture the actions and outcomes of your assembly workers. It can detect any defects or errors in the production process, missed steps/parts and/or misalignment for example. It can also alert the workers and supervisors of any issues and highlight corrective actions in real-time. VIOLET AI will also record the best practices of your skilled workers to ensure your standard working procedures (SWPs) are always followed with the related footage being available to train new or less experienced staff. This way, you can ensure that your workers are following the same quality standards to reduce rework/waste in production. VIOLET AI also generates a digital DNA of each part or assembly that you produce, which contains information such as the date, time, location, worker ID, defect rate, etc. This data can be used for traceability and compliance purposes, as well as providing Root Cause Analysis (RCA) data at your fingertips to improve processes and provide reassurance to your customers
