In the field of education, virtual reality has major advantages for the transfer of knowledge faster than conventional approaches and allows businesses to provide their workers with an efficient training program. By offering step-by-step guidance to create particular tasks, the Augmented Reality technology will assist during the training process. The knowledge in the AR application is made omnipresent, allowing the worker to be able to obtain the instructions with less effort, understandable and effective, avoiding the faults in the operation of the real ballast system. The process begins by evaluating the current components of the ballast system to understand how to incorporate augmented reality technology to boost the performance of the process. The ballast system is then made into a 3D model, including the proportional dimension and exact position of each part of the ballast system as mounted, and the potential real-world scenario. The outcome of this work is called the application of Ballast Component AR. A testing process is carried out to determine whether the application of augmented reality is prepared for implementation and preliminarily checked during the development stage. The AR framework is fully run and checked by the use of Android smartphones or tablets in the process. To evaluate input from users of the AR application, a questionnaire is used with defined parameters regarding the performance and the usefulness of the application.
