Two meters, or not two meters: that is the question

April 28th, 2020|Contact Tracing, Technology Trends|

I wonder if you’ve thought about why we are being advised to stay two meters (or six feet) away from other people to avoid Coronavirus transmission? That number used to be half the distance by the way, only changing fairly recently. To understand it, we have to go back to post-World War II England, and to a hospital not terribly far south of Stonehenge. Harvard Hospital was for decades the

Don’t stand so close: contact tracing with RTLS

April 27th, 2020|Contact Tracing, Technology Trends|

I’m pretty certain when Sting penned those lyrics back in 1980 he wasn’t imagining a manufacturing plant in 2020. Yet, here we are needing to rethink the way we work to ensure adequate social distancing to keep operating safely. Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) that track the interaction of people certainly has a role to play. With a long history of successfully tracking the location and movement of things, we take this stuff pretty

Improving Business Efficiency in an Aerospace MRO Environment

January 30th, 2020|SmartSpace Use-Cases, Thought Leadership|

INTRODUCTION In this series of Blogs, I explain how using digital process twins can revolutionize MRO efficiency. I discuss how the concept of the Digital Process Twin, having been perfected in assembly plants across aerospace and automotive manufacturing, is now being applied to MRO operations. The Internet of Things is a much-discussed topic, but people aren’t things, and nobody sells “smart, connected wing stands” so how do IoT concepts apply to MRO

Ubisense are now supporting many hundreds of thousands of tags and sensors deployed across many markets. The software - SmartSpace® - takes the data from any location solution, whether UWB, RFID, bluetooth, barcode,

Improving Business Efficiency in an Aerospace MRO Environment – The MRO Digital Twin

November 15th, 2019|Thought Leadership|

As discussed in the previous Blog, the Digital Process Twin is what we are creating in the MRO environment and to do this we need to understand how all the key pillars of MRO interact with one another to help define and monitor the process.

Improving Business Efficiency in an Aerospace MRO Environment – Defining the Digital Twin

November 6th, 2019|Thought Leadership|

In this Blog I want to establish what is meant by the term ‘digital twin’ and how it applies to the MRO environment. The term can lead to confusion since there are many examples of digital twins which mirror multiple kinds of real-world objects.
