This presentation focuses on a brain science evaluation of augmented reality (AR) as a learning and training tool in the manufacturing sector. I show that AR tools hold great promise in manufacturing because they reduce the cognitive load on the learner, provide the opportunity for limitless practice, and speed learning and retention by broadly recruiting multiple learning systems in the brain in synchrony. Specifically, AR tools simultaneously recruit cognitive, behavioral and experiential learning systems in the brain thus creating multiple distinct, but highly interconnected memory traces. Traditional tools focus almost exclusively on the cognitive skills learning system. I examine a number of use cases for AR including supply chain, environmental health and safety (EHS), product development, equipment operation, and field service. Finally, I summarize the brain science underpinnings for the effectiveness of AR tools in each use case.
