The Boeing Augmented Reality Kit (BARK) in Airplane Manufacturing

Room E101/102

This presentation will cover the Boeing Augmented Reality Kit (BARK) modules, and how they are being applied in Boeing manufacturing. The topics will cover the system front and back end development, integration with enterprise engineering systems, and our 3D precision and persistent alignment processes. We will discuss the use case of Augmented Reality (AR) to improve touch labor tasks, and provide a summary of our testing of this system in the factory on aircraft wire harness installation, and fastener location tasks.

The BARK back end is fully integrated with enterprise systems to provide up to date, spatially registered 3D views of wire installation drawings. The front end runs on a Microsoft HoloLens, tablet or cellphone, and allows technicians to customize their view.
Finally, the presentation will discuss the future roadmap for the tool, including additional features that are being added in 2018, and future applications.
