Hexagon Nexus Connected Worker suite

Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division released Nexus Connected Worker, a suite of manufacturing software solutions that connects workers to real-time data for actionable insights and reporting on operations, maintenance, quality, and audits. 

Powered by Hexagon’s Nexus, a digital-reality platform for manufacturers that simplifies collaboration across departments, the suite offers powerful enterprise-system integration and provides a central location for digital representations of assets, processes, and production facilities to support real-time decision making.

The ability to correct course using guidance from shopfloor data is an advantage for manufacturers who struggle to remain competitive in an evolving industry. 

Because rigid departmental divisions have long been the industry operating norm, breaking down these siloes remains a challenge despite the need for better data collection and information sharing being clearer than ever before. 

Nexus Connected Worker provides the operational agility and the IoT connectivity needed for a responsive workforce to react to immediate needs and glean insights from data that has been collected over time. 

The mobile-first applications can be easily accessed from the shop floor and the workflows can be tailored to meet specific needs across industries.

Using Nexus Connected Worker, renowned recreational-vehicle (RV) manufacturer Airstream transitioned from a paper-based inspection process to a digitised process with a standardised inspection process for all manufactured vehicles. 

The simplified inspection workflow enabled Airstream to reduce quality reporting time from one week to one day and report quality data for 100% of its products.
