Mark Sage, Executive Director of the AREA, shares his views on day 1 of the AR Workshop: Hardware / Software Functional Requirements for Industrial Applications.
Day 1 started with an introduction from Tom McDermott (DMDII) Mark Sage and then focused on hardware requirements. The session was expertly managed by Lonny Johnson, who stepped through the benchmark requirements defined by Lockheed Martin, Caterpillar and Proctor and Gamble.
For every requirement presented, there were lots of useful and interesting comments from the audience. The engagement was amazing and there was a real buzz in the room.
The day finished with a networking session and demo event with many of the AREA members showing their solutions. Everyone commented on how successful and interesting the day had been and that it was the first-time people the industry have come together to discuss Global Enterprise Requirements.
Day 2 will focus on software and finishes with an open session hosted by the AREA to discuss next steps and how to continue developing these global AR Enterprise requirements.
