Track and Trace for Industrial Tools Track and Trace for Industrial Tools
Track and trace for industrial tools refers to systems capable of recognizing and reporting the location and status of tools in a facility. Today's factories require exacting work. Track and trace technology can improve production safety, quality, and productivity. Asset tracking is currently done via barcode and a variety of manual steps in most cases. However, new solutions leveraging smart tags, near-field communication (NFC), and RFID are coming to market to globally track all varieties of objects in real time.CHALLENGES / REQUIREMENTS- Tracking of handheld tools for optimized use- Avoid misuse of tools which can result in serious accident or injury- Precise application of pressure or torque is required in many industries and operator error can cause costly defects- Production of industrial and consumer goods requires exacting workSTAKEHOLDERS- Industrial operations- Equipment manufacturers- Cloud platform providersKEY OBJECTIVES- Factory systems can detect the location of a tool to within a meter or less- More precise use of the tools reduces the likelihood of product defects- Status monitoring and automation can ensure proper tool use to avoid accidents- Equipment utilization can be improved with better asset visibilityTYPICAL SYSTEM CAPABILITIES- Real-time tracking of location- Monitoring of availability and operational status- Communication to operators via device user interfaces USAGE VIEWPOINT- 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 precisionFUNCTIONAL VIEWPOINT- Sensors: Vibration, torque, heat, energy consumption- Network: WiFi, Wide Area Network (WAN)- Standards: - Augmented Intelligence: Prescriptive analytics- Augmented Behavior: Machine-to-human (M2H) interfaces
Visual Quality Detection Visual Quality Detection
Quality assurance systems utilize RFID, sensors, video monitoring, remote information distribution and cloud solutions on the production line to streamline inspection procedures, improve decision making, and reduce costs driven by quality defects.
Warehouse Optimization Warehouse Optimization
Typical warehouse optimization includes implementing or optimizing warehouse management systems (WMS), automated material handling systems, bar coding, and automated data collection.CHALLENGES / REQUIREMENTS - A system is needed to monitor warehouse for better management and optimizationSTAKEHOLDERS - Warehouse managementKEY OBJECTIVES - To increase efficiency of warehouse operations- Increase efficiency of staff deployment - Reduce client delivery timeTYPICAL SYSTEM CAPABILITIES - The system can provide following information:- Location of goods and inventory- Location and operational status of forklifts- Location of available storage space- Inbound and outbound data of delivery fleetsUSAGE VIEWPOINT - A system detects the location of goods stored in warehouse, as well as the available storage space- It can also track the forklifts, their path and task which they are performing- The system keeps track of inbound and outbound data of delivery fleets- Using all above data, the system analyzes the operations in the warehouse and suggests optimization in itFUNCTIONAL VIEWPOINT - Sensors: Occupancy and motion, Position- Network: Wide Area Network (WAN) - Standards: - Augmented Intelligence: Descriptive analysis- Augmented Behavior: Machine-to-machine (M2M) interfaces
Water quality and leakage monitoring system Water quality and leakage monitoring system
Smart Water Monitoring platforms are generally ultra-low-power sensor nodes designed for use in rugged environments and deployment in hard-to-access locations to detect changes and potential risk to public health or environmental damage in real-time.CHALLENGES / REQUIREMENTS - Water is lost from the point of production & receipt by end-users (aka Non-Revenue Water)- Water is lost due to leaks in pipes & other infrastructure- Leaks typically go undetected or are responded to after the event- A significant amount of water is lost due to excessive irrigation(Only 70% of water supplied is consumed by agriculture)STAKEHOLDERS - Water consumers - Agriculture, industrial or residential areas- Water supply agenciesKEY OBJECTIVES - Uninterrupted quality services- Minimise water losses- Ensure water quality- Reduce interruption of service to consumers- Increase revenueTYPICAL SYSTEM CAPABILITIES - Sensors keep a track of water flow at every location of the system and send data over network analytical software tools- Analytical software tools continuously monitor the data and detect the water leakages- Leakage locations are then conveyed to the rectification and maintenance teamUSAGE VIEWPOINT Leakage Detection- A Sensor detects a sudden water leak & immediately generates an alarmLeakage Prevention- The System detects unusual readings from a Sensor (but no actual leakage)- Analysis of Sensor/historical data indicates a pipe breach is imminentThe Facilities team is deployed & arrives to find a rapidly deteriorating section of piping- The Facilities team immediately halts the water supply & replaces the damaged section of pipingFUNCTIONAL VIEWPOINT - Sensors: Pressure, Flow- Network: Wide Area Network (WAN) - Standards: - Augmented Intelligence: Descriptive analytics- Augmented Behavior: Machine-to-machine (M2M) interfaces
