The new industrial revolution is now underway, boosted by digital and environmental transformation over the past decade. Accelerating the transformation and automation of production processes while developing flexibility, safety and quality is becoming essential to ensure the future of tomorrow's industry. In the webinar (linked below), you will see how this transformation is made possible thanks to personalized end-to-end support, which Orange Business Services can offer you, with its expertise (integration, data security, etc.) and
At a time where mass transit systems are facing the burden of under-investment, increased congestion, and pressure to be green, many are operating under out-of-date models. “Clipboard and pen” methods of transit yard management need to be updated to create more comfortable working environments and a better service for passengers in a more complex working environment. This is all achievable when using a tried and tested Transit Management RTLS (Real-time Location System). New
Any business that relies on managing yard assets can benefit from yard management software (YMS). This type of software streamlines and optimizes yard operations, which leads to increased efficiency and profitability. In this guide, we'll cover the following topics: What is yard management software? The challenges of yard management The impact of COVID-19 on yard management How to choose the right yard management software for your business Why is Ubisense’s YMS so special?
The rise of Industry 4.0 has brought with it several new and innovative ways to track the location of people and it has made tracking people a reality in a variety of commercial and industrial settings. Not only can tracking people have immediate benefits like improved workplace safety, but the location data collected over time can further increase efficiency and optimize workflows. Forward-looking organizations are using people tracking while addressing reasonable expectations surrounding privacy
Most people trace the origin of Digital Twins to a speech made by Michael Grieves at the University of Michigan in 2002. In this speech he addressed all the key elements of digital twins and laid the foundation for what would become a key pillar of the Industry 4.0 movement. But it wasn’t until 2017 that digital twins began to emerge as a key technology trend. It was the spread of IoT devices, both
Asset tracking enables the capture of real-time data about the location, movement, and status of assets. This information can provide valuable insights into processes and workflows, increasing productivity and efficiency. However, choosing the right asset-tracking technology can be daunting. With options ranging from UWB to GPS to the ubiquitous RFID, how do you know which one is right for your business? Asset tracking technologies overlap in capabilities, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Furthermore,
What is RTLS Technology? There is a growing interest in RTLS (Real-time Location Systems) as part of the wider Industry 4.0 and “smart manufacturing” discussion. In recent years, RTLS systems have proliferated within the manufacturing, logistics, and engineering sectors. Companies with a better understanding of these technologies and their potential benefits are poised to profit from the increased efficiency, forecasting, and safety associated with their usage. What is RTLS Technology? How Does RTLS Work?
Hypothetically, an organization could implement real-time asset tracking across all its operations. An ideal asset tracking solution would therefore track all assets, in all processes, and at all times, and the data would be used to manage, monitor, and optimize the utilization of those assets. However, there are challenges associated with implementing asset tracking solutions, including management buy-in, the cost of installing & maintaining infrastructure, the organization's asset tracking maturity, integrating data into
Ever since Ransom Olds introduced the automotive assembly line in 1901, and Henry Ford the moving conveyor in 1913 we’ve pretty much been building cars the same way: cramming processes into fixed workstations. The fixed workstation is a very simple concept. Step 1: define the takt-time based on planned production volume, typically around 60 seconds for high volume. Step 2: set the line speed and workstation size to create 60s workstations. Step 3: divide
The barcode was first imagined in 1948 by Joseph Woodland, inspired by the dots and dashes of Morse code. Woodland was responding to a challenge set by a local retailer in Philadelphia, looking to find ways to speed up the process of checking-out in stores. By the 1960’s, an engineer, David Collins revived this idea and, combined with the availability of lasers, was putting thick and thin striped lines on railway cars so they
