Together with our industry partner we developed a digital shiftlog. These were the requirements:

  • Replacement of an handwritten shiftlog
  • Integration of system documentation, safety instructions, workflow descriptions, news, fault and maintenance reports
  • Working with an easy and responsive user interface
  • Enabling customizable queries
  • Export of time sheets

So we realized a beta version based on Semantic MediaWiki, which is subject of this talk. But the digital shiftlog is only one part of a greater government-funded project called "WikiProd". Together with our industry and university partners we're going to make first experiences with the combination of wiki technology and smart glasses.

The digitalisation of maintenance processes, the intelligent combination of plant and process documenation while working with easy user interfaces and smart glasses gave us some new ideas about the coming future of semantic knowledgebases.
