SAP and Vizux: Maintenance made easy Order fulfillment is only half the SAP-Vuzix story.

Suppose that driver’s forklift has a problem. Normally that means taking the equipment out of service. But if it’s relatively simple, the driver can call a technician who can walk him through a checklist -- complete with visual prompts -- and make the fix on the spot.

An SAP app being discussed would allow railway workers to inspect train wheels by simply looking at them. The glasses would then check to see if the wheels are still in round; if they are not, they’ll be “painted” red; if they are, they’ll appear green. Yellow? Too close to call, and the mechanic will have to perform a manual check. (Fast-forward to 1:50 or open in new window.)
