Ubisense Yard Management
Locate and manage Work-In-Progress (WIP) in real-time across both indoor and outdoor storage areas.
- Instantly find finished or part-finished products that are widely dispersed around site with precise searches.
- See all Work-In-Progress (WIP) across your facility with a real-time, browser-based map.
- Set alerts for ageing or forgotten WIP to avoid missing delivery schedules and loss or damage to products.
- Create a digital-twin of your yard with real-time movement of products to identify process bottlenecks.
- Track actual space utilization over time with dashboards and identify opportunities to reduce capital and operational costs.
With high volumes of finished and unfinished product widely dispersed around site, it can be difficult to find and stage assets effectively. Time is often wasted searching for lost or forgotten WIP.
Ubisense Yard Management reduces wasted search time and helps coordinate the correct staging of WIP in your processes.
- Quickly find finished or unfinished products on a digital map of your facility
- Create searches based on product location and status
- Easily see the real-time location and status of all WIP
Yard Management from Ubisense creates a complete digital-twin of your indoor and outdoor yards. 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.
- Prioritize search results using attributes including asset type, status, time in process and delivery schedules
- Configure business-rules to guide colleagues and ensure processes and WIP are optimized
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.
Ubisense Yard Management 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
Ubisense is proud to work with leading organizations around the globe, helping improve yard management, using a wide variety of proven, real-time location system technology to deliver the following outcomes:
- Elimination of search-time waste
- Reduced capital and operational costs through better resource utilization
- Increased productivity and reduced process cycle time
