elearning for manufacturing industry


In the manufacturing industry, attention to detail, safety, compliance, maintaining high standards, and regular innovation is important. Manufacturing is responsible for all physical goods ever produced and this creates a real need for everybody associated with this industry to know their product at all times. This industry relies on vendors, suppliers, and distributors to complete the manufacturing process, as a single product is the combination of multiple manufacturing efforts put together.

The need for all external partners to be aligned is imperative, and regular training and updating is the only way to achieve this. The manufacturing industry also faces increased competition yearly. To stay ahead of the game, organizations focus largely on R&D and this creates a need for well-trained employees.

Why traditional training falls short of a modern manufacturer’s needs.

  • Training is highly technical: The level of training required by workers is highly technical. Traditional training relies on written documents, notes, and paying keen attention. With modern manufacturing topics being complex, these methods alone are unreliable, making it risky, expensive, and non-scalable. Additionally, the shortage of product and process experts increases the need for a switch to eLearning.
  • Training cannot be revisited: In this industry, the need to revisit courses is important. Complex topics cannot be understood in a single attempt. Repeated training helps individuals perfect this complex knowledge. Traditional training is generally carried out once. The scope for repeating such training activity is small since added costs are involved. By designing courses for repeated users, training can be revisited.
  • Training Partners, Vendors, and Distributors: Manufacturing companies rely heavily on partners, vendors, and distributors for semi-finished components. The need to train these partners and ensure their compliance is critical. Traditional training approach in this regard is inefficient and unreliable. With manufacturing units increasingly becoming global, maintaining standards of safety, process, and ethics through eLearning are important for well-known companies.
  • The need for easily available information: When working on a manufacturing line, the need for immediate information is critical. The stress of working on a manufacturing line demands the availability of quick and qualitative information.
  • High employee turnover: The worker turnover in this industry is significant. Often, new employees are not from the same industry either. This creates a need for regular onboarding and in-depth training on a regular basis.
  • Safety and compliance tracking: The manufacturing industry faces the highest number of work related accidents on a yearly basis. With government policies tightening its grip on worker safety and compliance training initiatives, it is important to keep a track of employees who are attending these trainings and those avoiding it.

How does eNyota help manufacturing companies?

  • Creating courses understood by all: Workers often have no technical background or knowledge. Our team of experts simplify complex technical topics making it understandable by all. Whether it is product training, process training, manufacturing good practices, or even sales training, by creating engaging interactive eLearning courses, our instructional designers ensure learners engagement and retention is high. This is demonstrated through assessments which are tracked by your learning management system (LMS).
  • Translate courses for your global manufacturing units: With manufacturing, distribution, and warehousing units spread across the globe, we have created interactive courses in multiple languages, allowing workers to understand complex issues easily.

  • Simulate safety courses: We have created interactive simulation-based courses which explain the dangers of working on a manufacturing plant with appropriate images and scenario re-enactments, giving your training a visual dimension. The ability to interact with courses allows learners to understand and demonstrate their knowledge while boosting their confidence.
  • Mobile-friendly courses: Workers often do not have access to computers or workstations. We understand this and hence, mobile optimized courses are created.
  • Interactive audio + video courses: We can break down complex manufacturing and assembling processes into interactive bite sized audio + video courses which explain the intricacies of the job in detail. These can be a mix of live action videos interlaced with interactivity or illustrated animated videos.
