New Employee Training with Smartwatches in Production

In the fast-paced world of production companies, the effective training of new employees is essential to maintain operational efficiency, accuracy, and safety. This use case explores how the integration of smartwatches into the training process can streamline onboarding, improve employee productivity, and enhance overall company operations.


  • High turnover rates among new employees.
  • Complexity of production processes.
  • Training inconsistency and potential for errors during the learning curve.


1. Smartwatch Integration

Upon joining the production team, new employees are equipped with smartwatches featuring a custom training application. These smartwatches are synced with the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and provide real-time guidance and support throughout the training process.

2. Real-time Task Assignments

As trainees step onto the production floor, their smartwatches assign them real-time tasks based on their training schedule. For example, an inventory trainee tasked with picking orders will receive notifications on their smartwatch with details about the order, item locations, and optimized pick paths.

3. Step-by-Step Instructions

Trainees can access step-by-step instructions for various tasks directly on their smartwatches. This includes written guidance, ensuring consistent and accurate execution of production processes.

4. Safety Alerts

Smartwatches are equipped with safety sensors that can detect potentially hazardous situations, such as heavy machinery in proximity. When a safety concern arises, the smartwatch immediately alerts the trainee and provides guidance on how to mitigate risks.

5. Progress Tracking

Supervisors and trainers can monitor trainee progress via a central dashboard linked to the smartwatches. This enables real-time feedback and the ability to identify areas where additional training may be required.


  1. Faster Onboarding: Smartwatches accelerate the onboarding process by providing immediate access to training materials and real-time task assignments.
  2. Reduced Errors: Step-by-step instructions and safety alerts minimize errors, ensuring the quality of work and product accuracy.
  3. Increased Safety: Smartwatches contribute to a safer work environment by proactively identifying and addressing potential hazards.
  4. Streamlined Training: Trainers can efficiently oversee multiple trainees and provide timely guidance when needed, improving the overall effectiveness of training sessions.
  5. Improved Productivity: Employees trained with smartwatches tend to become productive faster, contributing to higher operational efficiency.


The integration of smartwatches into the training of new employees in the production companies has proven to be a game-changer. By providing real-time guidance, safety support, and task assignments, smartwatches have enhanced the training experience, reduced errors, and accelerated the onboarding process. This innovative approach not only ensures that new employees quickly become valuable contributors but also elevates the overall efficiency and safety of company operations.
