TeamViewer has announced that GlobalFoundries (GF) has used TeamViewer’s Augmented Reality (AR) platform Frontline to digitally modernise its warehouse operations at its Dresden location.

In a statement, TeamViewer said GF realised significant benefits from the installation of TeamViewer’s solution, including up to 25 per cent faster warehouse process execution, improved staff ergonomics, a picking error rate near to nil, and a decrease in waste of around 100,000 paper sheets per year.

“At GF, we always strive to improve our operational efficiencies to better fulfill our customers’ needs. When looking for a solution to digitally transform and improve our warehouse operations, we found that an Augmented Reality based solution could really make a difference for us. Now, with the roll-out of TeamViewer Frontline, we were able to take efficiency, accuracy and sustainability of warehouse logistics to a whole new level,” GF Senior Director of Logistics Kevin Hidalgo said.

Executive Vice President Solution Sales and Delivery Jan Junker stated: “Around 80 percent of the global workforce is not working at a desk, but in manufacturing, production, logistics or field service. With our AR solutions, enterprises have the first-time opportunity to also digitalize the tasks and processes from these areas and seamlessly connect the workers to the company’s existing digital infrastructure. The benefits that GlobalFoundries achieved in such short time speak for themselves.”

At the GF warehouse, the software leads warehouse workers through the picking process with clear step-by-step instructions presented right in their field of view on the smart glasses. Together with the integrated voice control, it provides workers with 100 per cent hands-free information, entirely replacing the previous paper-based approach.

According to TeamViewer, the entire TeamViewer Frontline implementation at GF’s Dresden location took approximately 10 weeks. TeamViewer is collaborating with GF to discover further ways to use the technology and is investigating use cases other than vision picking.
