AREA Enterprise AR Interoperability Requirements Workshop

Date of Event:

Sep 25 2019


Nashville, TN.


Loews Vanderbilt Hotel
Nashville, TN.

Overview of event

On September 25, the AREA will conduct a workshop to brainstorm and document enterprise AR interoperability requirements for workers who use AR to perform operations on a shop floor more efficiently and safely. The use cases include providing job orders, configuring instruments or machinery, servicing or repairing components and machinery in a plant, ensuring correct materials are positioned with respect to machinery and support critical processes, navigating a user to job site, delivery of complex instructions, quality inspection and remote expert support.

This workshop, a component of the AREA Interoperability and Standards program, is designed to provide value to the following stakeholders:

  • Representatives of enterprise organizations with manufacturing or assembly use cases that meet the workshop’s criteria will learn how to develop requirements and contribute their requirements which, if/when met will improve their ability to integrate AR and shorten ROI,
  • Standards Development Organizations (staff and members) will have a more detailed understanding of the customer requirements and, based on those, be able to evaluate if/how their organizations can reduce barriers to enterprise AR interoperability.

The AREA is calling for participation from large enterprises (AREA and non-members) with current AR projects or pilots for shop floor use cases and who are facing integration challenges. We seek to collect their interoperability requirements in a structured manner in this workshop. 

In order to develop the highly-focused requirements needed to develop standards in a short amount of time, the AREA seeks participants working in the IT departments of large enterprises and with recent (past 12 months) participation in AR pilots and/or integration projects. 


The workshop will be held on September 25 from 4:00 PM to 5:45 PM Central US Time (Nashville). Participants should plan to be at the venue no later than 3 PM.
