Ubisense Process Tracker Drives Production Optimization for Manufacturing Market
Cambridge – 24 April 2009
Ubisense, the World leader in precise real-time location systems, today announces the availability of its Process Tracker Application meeting the needs of its rapidly growing Industrial customer base.
The application already in use at customers such as Aston Martin and Cummins provides real-time visibility throughout processes such as rework and finishing in automotive manufacturing plants, engine manufacturing plants, aircraft assembly and MRO. Visibility alone can highlight problem areas and can be used to significantly reduce costly work-in-process by generating alerts when a product becomes stuck. But Process Tracker adds to this with weekly or daily key performance indicators (KPIs) that include such data as the ageing of product in-process, direct measurement of mean times in process steps, and more advanced measurements such as “Right-First-Time” and “Non-Value-Added-Time” by product model or across the entire process.
The application allows production engineers to draw their process step locations on a map, and to enter basic process parameters such as how long a step should take (dwell time) and constraints on step ordering (process flow definition). Combining this data with the location of tagged assets, the application delivers product tracking, dwell time and process flow monitoring, along with a range of standard output and analysis options.
Simon Holloway, Practice Leader for Process and RFID at Bloor Research says, “precise RTLS from Ubisense is clearly delivering major process improvement opportunities for manufacturing companies and Ubisense is becoming a standard in challenging manufacturing environments where both precision and reliability are key”.
Ubisense is the world leader in Precise Real Time Location Systems, tracking people and assets with unmatched accuracy, and giving enterprises the power to bring visibility and control to previously intractable business processes. With over 350 customers worldwide, Ubisense is revolutionising industries today. Visit www.ubisense.net
