Duration: 14.5 Hours


As part of the industry 4.0 digital transformation initiatives, electronics, biotechnology and precision engineering industries have evolved their capabilities through the intervention of digital technologies. Digitization as part of Industrial Internet of Things transformation is being introduced in the overall work process from design, prototype, production to supply chain management. In the advancement of immersive technology, Augmented Reality (AR) technology is being introduced to optimise and improve the productivity and efficiency in the manufacturing operation. Especially in the areas of real time factory planning, technical troubleshooting and repair, predictive and preventive equipment maintenance, just in time and effective safety and technical training and quality assurance. In this module, it will provide participants an overview of immersive technology in the industry. This is to prepare participants to be mentally ready for immersive technology. Then we will equip them with the knowledge and skills on how to operate AR application software so that they can increase efficiency in their work processes.

This module is developed by referencing to one of the skills frameworks under SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG). The technical skills and competencies (TSC) of this module is Augmented Reality Application. It is a Level 1 proficiency module which its description is operate augmented reality (AR) application software to increase efficiency of work processes.



On completion of this module, participants will be able to perform basic AR application.



The knowledge and abilities covered in this module include:


  • Benefits of applying AR in various work processes
  • Procedures and processes at work which are supported by AR applications
  • Operating procedures for work equipment which are supported by AR applications
  • Working principles of AR
  • Concept of overlaying virtual objects onto real world
  • Main components of AR
  • Distinct differences between virtual reality (VR) and AR
