Deploy and train Core ML vision models and procedures

IBM Services Software Inspection Workbench is a native iOS or iPadOS mobile app that works with IBM Maximo Visual Inspection to enable the labeling of images used to train Core ML computer vision models using an iPhone or iPad with Apple Pencil on compatible devices. Once models are trained on the server, IBM Inspection Workbench can deploy those models in real time to the IBM Services Software Inspector Portable app and the IBM Maximo Visual Inspection Mobile app and create or update relevant inspections, all from one native iOS or iPadOS experience.

IBM Inspection Workbench introduces the concept of inspection procedures that enable multiple inspections to be conducted as a progression of steps. Procedures can be created, edited and published from IBM Inspection Workbench. Published procedures can run on the IBM Inspector Portable app.
