Step-Function Change

Boeing reinvented aircraft wire harness assembly using Skylight

“When you truly sit in the pilot seat, from the technicians point of view, having a hands-free device where the information is just always in the upper right corner of your eye really starts to make sense.”


At Boeing, achieving first-time quality is a must, and wiring harness assembly is a critical component to delivering on its high standard manufacturing process.

The company engaged with APX using its Skylight software to power Google Glass wearable technology and improve its wiring harness production.

The result: A cut in production time by 25% and an error reduction effectively to zero. That’s what Boeing calls a “step-function change.”

Boeing’s implementation was a candidate for Augmented World Expo’s “Best Enterprise Solution” in 2016.
