Yard Management

Ubisense tracks the realtime position of workinprogress across indoor and outdoor areas and keeps systems of record uptodate

Are you looking for Transit Yard Management?

What issue does it address?

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. Production resources are left idle waiting for their next job or movement waste is created by incorrect storage or staging of products.

These challenges can lead to:

  • Increased costs from inefficient use of space and resources
  • Delayed product completion and delivery schedules
  • Ageing work in progress at risk of damage or loss

What is the Ubisense Solution?

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.
Pre-configured functionality can include:
  • Maps and searches for real-time location of assets
  • Customizable alerts for ageing or misplaced products
  • ‘Snap to space’ to neatly depict location and orientation of products
  • Graphical reports for process times and space utilization

What benefits does it provide?

Ubisense is proud to work with leading organizations around the globe to help improve the storage, locating and management of physical assets providing the following outcomes:
  • Reduced capital and operational costs through better resource utilization
  • Increased productivity and reduced process cycle time
  • Elimination of search-time waste

Prioritize 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

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.

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
