Speeding up repairs: Connecting drones, workers and 3D printers

Accenture’s Henk-Jan Schuurman describes how Accenture’s Digital Distribution Solution is speeding up repair times.

It is used to connect a drone with a heat-sensing camera, which detects a failed part. A connected worker (wearing smart glasses) is then notified to remove the part and provided with instructions. If there are no available parts in inventory, the operator uses a 3D printer to manufacture a new part.
