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
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
INTRODUCTION Ubisense have been providing location solutions to many customers over the last 17 years. These solutions have been delivered with a mixture of hardware and software. The hardware - Dimension4™ - is Ultra Wide Band (UWB) and is the most accurate industrialised real time location solution (RTLS) available. 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,
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.
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.
I start by highlighting the missing element of many IoT implementations: the context of asset location and movement. Having highlighted the value of that additional context, I will apply that to MRO operations to understand the benefits in planning, the ability to react to issues, and consequently reduced turnaround time.
