Airbus not the only one to be impressed by digital checklists for industry from

The Potsdam-based company nxtBase wins one prize after the other. How come? By offering digital, virtual checklists. But what exactly does nxtBase do? Customers receive data glasses, so-called smart glasses into which companies can enter their checklists, e.g. those for checking aircraft doors or railway wagons. With these smart glasses, warehousemen, fitters or service technicians can process digital lists step by step, with their hands free. “What and where should that go?” “Is this the right component?” “How did we do that again?” The smart glasses have answers to all of these questions. Moreover, everything can be documented with the camera. Employees standing in front of a machine can be shown the various components – including designations – via WLAN. For example, if somebody has to inspect the door on an aircraft with hundreds of components, the glass will tells them what to inspect and in what order. If a part is in order, the next step will then follow. If not, the employee can find out step by step what the matter is. If he was to look at plans, he would have to keep turning around each time. And there also wouldn’t be any documentation of what he did and how he did it. “This check is important for our customers – for instance, in the aerospace or railway industries,” says Jörg Jonas-Kops. “It’s like TÜV, it has to be a real check. With our solution, the person placing the order knows where there’s a snag in the process. The glass can also be used, for example, to check whether a spare part for the part that has to be removed is available in the warehouse or has to be ordered.
