Activate the best practice in full screen

Über die Best Practice,

Pixelspray VR is a unique VR based training tool aimed to train line workers in a paint shop setting. The system allows each user to log in, learn, and do live evaluations which can be checked by the line managers. We also have the ability to record a painter, which allows us to retain experience users data against which we can compare the newer users. This helps with retaining the knowledge of more experienced users even after they retire.

The system is dynamic and can load multiple car models and paint colours. The user has a limited time to complete the paint job, after which they are evaluated.

There is also a practice mode where the user is not timed and can practice the paint job.

One of the main goals of Pixelspray is to help users to identify “defects”. These usually occur when there is overpainting or underpainting, or other factors. The program mimics all these factors, and users have to be aware of defects at all times and at the end they are shown how many defects were created.

Defects are the biggest reason for plant line shut downs in real world scenarios, which can lead to huge losses for stopped production.
