WIP Tracker

Achieve the optimal flow of raw materials and products in your non-linear or cell manufacturing processes.

Make non-linear and complex production simple

Companies often face low productivity in non-linear or highly variable production processes. This is caused by a variety of difficult-to-identify factors that cause higher costs and lower efficiency such as:
  • High inventory to support mixed production batches
  • Under-utilized resources due to incorrect product, people, or tool availability
  • Wasted time searching for lost, forgotten and ageing work-in-progress (WIP)
  • Bottlenecks and congestion causing quality and throughput issues

The Solution: SmartSpace WIP

SmartSpace WIP Tracker from Ubisense creates a complete digital twin of your indoor and outdoor areas.  By combining the real-time location and status of WIP with intelligence from planning systems (such as process time limits or product delivery schedules), configurable business rules can automatically prioritise products and tasks to reduce cycle times and meet goals.

  • Make better use of under-utilized resources by correcting product, people, or tool availability
  • Reduce wasted time searching for lost, forgotten, and ageing WIP
  • Relieve bottlenecks and congestion causing quality and throughput issues
  • Clarify the inventory to support mixed product batches
  • Measure the efficiency of non-linear production processes
  • Ensure finished and part-finished products are stored correctly
  • Avoid unplanned downtime by correctly staging people, equipment and products
  • Synchronize your products and work cells, avoiding duplicate work or missed production steps

Create Alerts

In busy production facilities with high volumes or finished and unfinished products widely dispersed around site, WIP can be easily forgotten or lost, increasing the risk of damage or missed delivery schedules.

SmartSpace can automatically alert colleagues of misplaced or out-of-policy WIP.

  • Easily customizable alerts for ageing or misplaced products
  • Prompts for routing WIP with the option for capturing feedback notes directly in the system
