A New Generation of Electricians Will Upskill With BILT 3D Guidance
GRAPEVINE, TX / ACCESSWIRE / October 4, 2022 / Siemens is collaborating with BILT Incorporated to provide official 3D Intelligent Instructions® for the next generation of electricians. The interactive training app guides users through the assembly and installation of the Siemens P5 power panel and strap and breaker kit. The goal is to demystify the installation experience.
“Safety is paramount and BILT makes training safer,” says Siemens North American Marketing Manager David Quatela. “The 3D app is accessible and intuitive. BILT gives electricians all the information they need, right at their fingertips.”
Quatela says this generation of workers is especially adept at digital training. They’ve grown up Googling information and following YouTube videos to learn how to do things. But unlike video, the BILT app allows users to manipulate 3D animations on a touchscreen device to view each step from any angle. Users can zoom in, tap on a part for details, and instantly replay a step.
The war on talent has wreaked havoc on the trade industries and the demand for electricity continues to grow worldwide. According to the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), the skilled labor deficit is dire; 10,000 electricians retire every year and only 7,000 new professionals join the workforce. This “severe, nationwide shortage” makes it difficult for electrical contractors to keep pace with customer demand.
“Siemens is an industry innovator,” says BILT Chairman & CEO Nate Henderson. “They’re making it possible for apprentices to upskill faster, install with confidence, and follow safety guidelines more easily.” He says BILT’s goal is to make every step clear and cognitively simple, so users know exactly what to do without becoming overwhelmed with information or so frustrated they need to call for support.
The BILT platform provides data analytics and enables user feedback to help manufacturers innovate product design, establish best practices, and reduce customer support issues. For more information, download BILT from the App Store or Google Play or go to BILTapp.com.
