Production Logistics

Tracking material flow across manufacturing sites prevents shortages and production downtime. A digital twin of the production environment is created within the SmartSpace software with precise 3D spaces, configured for important logistic areas, including the warehouses, lineside buffers, handover areas and linefeed areas. Users can search for types of parts of materials and can easily locate them across the site on an interactive digital map.

Dashboards show the real-time quantity of parts or materials in the defined spaces, highlighting when quantities are approaching or below optimum levels. More detailed reports can show individual levels of parts or materials across the plant. Custom rules can be configured for individual fulfilment priorities alerting users of potential congestion or starvation of critical material. SmartSpace uses real-time location movement and location data from sensors that track individual parts or material handling equipment as they move around the site. Dashboards automatically update with current levels of availability and give production teams accurate information to optimize operations.

Tool Management


Locate, coordinate and control the use of tools in real-time across both indoor and outdoor facilities.

Eliminate search time, automate processes, and prevent incorrect tool usage. See all tools in real-time in an interactive map of your facility.

Tools can be assigned unique digital representations and can be searched for by asset type, name, status, and zone. Click any asset to study more detailed information and to set alerts.


Process Monitoring

SmartSpace continuously monitors the movement of WIP throughout the production process, revealing real-world production flow and detecting deviations from plan. This instantaneous view of production reality enables operations teams to proactively optimise productivity and quality, while enabling continuous improvement teams to quickly identify process waste and instability.


  • Wasted time searching for WIP
  • Delayed WIP stuck between process steps
  • Quality issues arising from missed or incorrect process steps
  • Bottlenecks caused by frequently-overrunning processes
  • Increased productivity and quality through better coordination of complex processes
  • Reduction in labour costs
  • Improved order-to-delivery time
  • Reduction in WIP inventory
  • Reduction in cycle time
  • Low productivity caused by inefficient routing of work orders through available work zones
  • Low productivity driving WIP inventory build-up and
    labour costs required to hit delivery schedules


  • Real-time location of all WIP
  • Automatic alerts highlighting delayed WIP
  • Real-time detection of process sequence errors
  • Automatic identification of unstable processes
  • Identify priority WIP and match with available resources


  • Increased productivity and quality through better coordination of complex processes
  • Reduction in labour costs
  • Improved order-to-delivery time
  • Reduction in WIP inventory
  • Reduction in cycle time

Yard Management


Locate and manage Work-In-Progress (WIP) in real-time across both indoor and outdoor storage areas.

Ubisense Yard Management creates a digital twin of your indoor and outdoor yards, defining storage, work and dispatch zones and tracking the real-time movement of products through them.

• Reduce capital and operational costs through better resource utilization
• Increase productivity and reduce process cycle time
• Eliminate search-time waste 


Logistics Control


Digitize delivery operations and track equipment utilization.

SmartSpace digitizes delivery operations and tracks equipment utilization. The software includes a dashboard where users can assign deliveries to operators, track delivery tasks through to completion and monitor and optimize resource utilization.

The “Delivery” screen shows tasks already completed, those currently assigned and in progress, and those yet to be assigned. Users can assign delivery tasks to operators, and a popup shows the equipment available to associate with the delivery and its location on site. Once assigned, the operation appears under the “Assigned” table.


The current location and status of all equipment and operators across the site can be viewed on a digital map. Filters and searches enable users to view the current availability and assigned tasks of both equipment and operator, as well as the history of delivery tasks for a specified period of time.

The entire logistics process is tracked in real-time with guided instructions for operators. SmartSpace shows the equipment assigned to each delivery task and controls the instructions given to the operator via a digital display. Using precise location and movement tracking, SmartSpace knows when the material handling equipment arrived at the designated pickup area. Once delivery is complete, operators are directed to the location of their next task. If delivery is made in the wrong area, alerts will be sent and operators will be guided to the correct location.

Offline Rework


Monitor the movement of products and tools after assembly to optimise inspection and rework

SmartSpace’s offline rework solution helps vehicle manufacturers sustain continuous flow and optimize efficiency in the repair and rework department. As a result, this offering delivers measurable productivity gains by reducing errors and wasted time, and significantly improving production qualityBring an unprecedented level of visibility and control to the offline process, allowing frontline managers to more easily visualize process status and the real‐time location of all work-in-progress (WIP). Additionally, SmartSpace automatically monitors and measures processes and generates alerts when deviations from plan occur. This level of real-time insight dramatically improves quality, productivity and operational decision-making.

Tool Control


Directly control wireless tools in real-time on fast-moving or complex assembly lines.

Ubisense Tool Control accurately locates assembly tools and enables the correct operation in precisely defined work zones. Remove the limitations of corded tools, mechanical tethers and fixed workstations to improve quality, increase flexibility and reduce costs in highly stressed continuous production processes.

Sequence Control

By precisely tracking tool position and orientation, assembly devices can distinguish between adjacent fasteners to ensure the correct tightening sequence is followed for critical operations.

  • Control tightening sequence and torque settings
  • Automatic digital audit of completed fasteners
  • Configure multiple tool zones on the same product
  • Enable multiple tightening sequences on the same line
  • Corrects for poor lighting and recessed fastenings


Process Verification

Errorproof critical assembly operations to improve quality and reduce rework.

Lightweight tags are attached to the critical parts and equipment in the assembly process, such as tools, scanners, materials or fluid dispensers. By combining location data and business rules, all necessary operations can be validated. If an operation is not fully completed, an alert can be sent and a product can be prevented from leaving a station. Errors such as fitting a part to the wrong area of a product can be prevented in real-time, preventing costly rework or product warranty claims in the future.

“Ensure process compliance on every build.”
