In many (Western) factories, fewer people are working with increasingly more smart machines. Pieter Diepenmaat and his colleagues at Hoog+Diep were asked by one of the largest beer brewers in the world to improve this working relationship using smartwatches. Their solution enables employees to manage a large area with complex, noisy – and often wet – machinery, because machinery indicate via real-time smartwatches when they need tending to.
During the table session, Pieter lets you in on how they combined their research into employees’ needs with the development of this new technique, testing their way to a successful marriage between man and machine.
