Some of the questions that we face from our customers and prospects during factory visits. They want integrated solutions that are affordable, easy to deploy, low cost of maintenance and with all required international certifications.

Q. Firstly we want to zone our workers. This would enable us to know who is present in which activity room or particular equipment at a given time duration

A. Our Indoor Localisation software has functions to divide the factory shopfloor into 5×5 meter zones and provide the location and movement of workers, their proximity to certain equipment.

Q After this, we want to know the utilization of our production equipment. We want to know this in order to ensure that plant and machinery is being used optimally.

A. We have equipment utilisation monitoring devices integrated on to our Shop Floor monitoring system, which gives a breakup of the hourly usage of various equipment. Wireless acceleration tags are attached to each of this equipment. This data can be used for Activity Based Costing purposes.

Q. The plant works for 24 hours throughout 6 days a week. Sometimes our workers speed up manufacturing by sacrificing the quality of the final product in order to free themselves from working longer hours. We ensure that their plant is constantly running and there’s no unnecessary idle time for machines.

A. The time spent by each work in a specific zone will be accurately recorded by our indoor localisation system, ensuring readily available to the operations manager.

Q. In order to make this possible they want us to give comprehensive reports of people moving in the facility and co-relate it with equipment utilization hence enabling them to address this issue.

A. Workers can be divided into different categories such as inspectors, trainers, contractors. They can be grouped under leaders to understand their behavior on the factory shop floor.
