Track and Trace for Industrial Tools
How does this use case impact an organization’s performance?
Tools are continuously monitored for location, use and idle time. Data for every tool is provided to the monitoring software, which monitors for optimal use of the tools to avoid accidents and improve precision.
This greatly enhances asset utilization and production quality, reduces maintenance costs and ensures operational safety.
Where is the ’edge’ of the solution deployed?
Track and trace for industrial tools is usually deployed within the tools themselves. A real-time connection for monitoring is upheld with operations management, and shared with operations on a tool-by-tool basis.
What sensors are typically used to provide data into the IoT system, and which factors define their deployment?
Bar Code Scanners
Position Trackers, Infrared Sensors
Vibration, Torque and Heat Sensors
Energy Consumption Trackers
Voice Recognition for Advanced Tools
