Due to its tremendous potential, Augmented Reality (AR) has experienced a recent surge in adoption and integration within the manufacturing enterprise. While industrial AR has been successfully implemented and shown to have significant benefits in a variety of applications, proper use case development, application-specific evaluation, and data interoperability remain open research challenges. In this work, we demonstrate an AR-enabled use case that allows for remote monitoring and inspection of manufacturing systems by overlaying contextual information, such as machine execution data, over the video feed of the manufacturing floor. Additionally, we discuss challenges related to our prototype's implementation and potential opportunities to mitigate such issues through standard indoor geospatial representations.
