Deploying Tablets Safely in Manufacturing to Boost Productivity
To increase business productivity, Intel IT conducted multiple proof of concepts (PoCs) to identify business, safety, and ergonomic requirements for the use of mobile devices, including tablets, in our manufacturing environments. We provided feedback to external suppliers on specifications for ruggedized and intrinsically safe Intel® architecture-based tablets. Using these mobile devices, as well as Ultrabook™ convertibles, will help to boost employee productivity in Intel factories, warehouses, security areas, construction sites, clean rooms, and tool install design office, where using a standard laptop PC is unsuitable. Our PoCs showed standardization benefits in efficiency, accuracy, and savings in time and costs from using tablets.
