The first intelligent voice solution for Quality Inspectors and Controllers

An AI solution for field operations

SPIX for CHECK enhances the productivity of inspectors and quality controllers, who can work hands and eyes free, guided by our SPIX voice assistant.

At a time of data proliferation and massive deployment of software to manage the activities of field operators, man-machine collaboration is no longer an option, but a genuine necessity for improving the overall operational performance of processes.

In addition to automating repetitive tasks, the “augmented” inspector must not only devote more time to higher value-added tasks, but also enable technology to progress. Thus “allied” to the machine, his work is improved and a true partnership is established between man and tool.

Anintelligent voice-assistance solution for inspectors and quality controllers at all stages of industrial production.

The deployment of technologies integrating AI algorithms to assist the quality controller is becoming essential for organizations wishing to remain competitive. The efficiency and performance of inspection and quality control 4.0 tools such as SPIX FOR CHECK enable operators to be more flexible and agile in their daily missions. What’s more, operators can easily get to grips with this type of tool, thanks to simple, intuitive technologies.

The return on investment (ROI) of the SPIX FOR CHECK solution takes just a few months. Once implemented, and with a proven return on investment, SPIX Industry is in a position to deploy its solution on other business processes such as production, assembly, maintenance and all field services.

7 reasons to choose Spix for Check

REASON #1: Advanced voice interaction services tailored to your operators’ professions

  • Measurement and verification
  • Reference entry and verification
  • Free comment input
  • Selection from trade repositories
  • Reminder of PPE and tools
  • Push alerts and points of vigilance
  • Photo shoots
  • Photo and video manipulation

REASON #2: The performance of our speech recognition component in your work environment

Industrial voice applications have to cope with difficult acoustic conditions. An operator’s words are often drowned out by noise from the plant or facility being inspected (e.g. machine noise, various conversations, wind, ventilation systems). Voice recognition, combined with a certified headset and microphone, cleans up audio signals, reducing the harmful effects of ambient industrial noise. The voice recognition rate is very high, with no learning phase for operators.

REASON #3: The naturalness of our synthesized voices

Our synthesized voices are optimized to read long texts in a natural, human way. Algorithms based on deep learning provide greater fluidity and a more natural prosody, resulting in a unique vocal experience.

REASON #4: Guidance modes specially designed for voice + screen multimodality

Compared with traditional Voice Picking solutions, the presence of a smartphone or tablet screen extends the possible types of feedback from the Voice Assistant to the operator, and therefore the modes of interaction:

  • 100% voice guidance between our SPIX voice assistant and an operator via headset and microphone
  • Multimodal guidance using voice and the device screen simultaneously, via a dedicated HMI.
  • 100% visual guidance for cases where voice interaction is not possible for the operator

REASON #5: Support for a wide range of Android devices

SPIX FOR CHECK runs on most Android mobile devices and terminals on the market.

REASON #6: Advanced voice functionalities enabled by natural language processing (NLP)

  • Voice navigation in checklists or inspection plans/forms (previous step, next step, go to, still to do, super check)
  • Introduction of synonyms on words, groups of words or phrases
  • Dynamic voice interaction with the SPIX tablet (system status, detailed performance, comprehension level, etc.)

REASON #7: SPIX FOR CHECK’s ability to interface with all inspection and quality control software on the market

  • Weak coupling by exchanging static files via a pivot format
  • Strong coupling through dynamic, real-time interfacing via standardized protocols and messages

A turnkey application that’s autonomous, embedded and functional off the network.
A pivotal format for interfacing with all QMS and IMS software.
