AndonSPEED: a unique system for optimising warehouse logistics processes
Since 2016 AndonSPEED has been playing its part in optimising processes on manual workstations and in warehouse operations. The system is a unique and innovative intelligent monitoring and call-for-action system, unlike traditional andon light systems.
AndonSPEED not only gives a clear local visual signal of a disruption or change in status on the line or workstation, but also documents and analyses down-time. The wirelessly connected system passes information to a control station display on a PC or screen and can also despatch call for action e-mails automatically to personnel required to intervene and resolve a problem.
In line with their Industry 4.0 development initiative, the Siemens factory in Nanjing felt that using phone calls as the primary method for reporting and calling for action was not acceptable for long-term development goals. In addition, phone calls do not create any data that can be stored for future referencing.
