With Skylight, instructions are now provided via the smart glasses. So are guided videos, animations, and images―all configured and accessible at any time for the worker. No stopping, no walking up and down ladders, less risk of injury. Workers can even turn on their camera and call engineers or other support team members for "see what I see" assistance with difficult steps.

As each nut is finished, Skylight automatically records the final correct torque value. For further documentation, Skylight prompts the mechanic to take a photo of each installed B-nut for historical quality purposes before proceeding to the next step in the procedure.
On average, across all mechanics studied, the efficiency improvements were between 8 - 11%.
60% of the participants indicated that they preferred using the wearable technology to the traditional methods.
85% of the mechanics agreed to the statements, “I believe that using this system will reduce manufacturing errors,” and, “I thought the system was easy to use.”
