We’ve developed workplace models including an inventory of standard actions required for furniture production, textile production, and helicopter maintenance. Part of the vocabulary screening included developing standard verbs for handling and motion – and their visual representation. With our partners from VTT, the Technical Research Centre of Finland, we’ve created this visual language for guiding users on-the-job, when using smart glasses and portable devices.
