Transformation for IoT Business Model in Connected Industrial Vehicles
CNH Industrial wanted to put IoT-enabled viechles onto the market. Whether monitoring a single machine or integrating an entire fleet, operators are able to track the status, speed, and movement of machines and their performance and also receive alerts on issues that may require service by a qualified technician to improve uptime and overall effectiveness of the vehicle.
Scalability Through IoT: Dillon Transportation's Growth with Innovative Access
Dillon Transportation, a dry van transportation company, experienced significant growth since its inception in 1996. From a humble beginning with one truck and two drivers, the company expanded to a fleet of 125 trucks and 170 drivers and crew members. However, this rapid growth brought about a challenge. The owner, Donnie Dillon, found it increasingly difficult to keep track of every driver and truck in his fleet. He could no longer remember the specifics of each trip, which he previously kept in his head. The company needed a more sophisticated way of storing information about drivers and loads. They required a system that would allow employees to access the specifics of each trip easily. The challenge was to find a solution that could manage the growing complexity of their operations.
Successful 5G and Wi-Fi Network Convergence Solution for a Power Plant in China
To thrive in the industry 4.0 era, many factories are always looking for ways to improve efficiency and enhance reliability, and power plants are no exception. Any idle time resulting from an operational glitch directly impacts both the top and bottom lines of the business. Thus, the network is central to everything the plant generates. To improve the network infrastructure, the Milesight CPE units, which are 5G-ready and Wi-Fi integrated, are implemented in a power plant to provide a wireless solution for high-speed, reliable connections with low latency.The Beihai Power Plant Phase II is an expansion project, which is a major project promoted by GFIG to build a stable and reliable “energy network” for Guangxi province, China.A 24-by-7 operation spread across 136,500 square meters (0.05 square miles). They were actively seeking a solution with the latest wireless network technology so that they could successfully interlink all mobile devices and office equipment without any downtime, meanwhile, exchange the data securely on the private network.Frustrated with network downtime, unstable connectivity, and spotty coverage, this coal-fired Beihai power plant was desperate.Wireless DeploymentTime equals money. Wired deployment is not an option due to the tricky and time-consuming process, and if a buried cable is broken, it is expensive to repair, while industrial wireless deployment saves significant costs compared to an equivalent wired installation.Extensive ConnectionsMany smartphones and tablets in areas of the plant must be connected to wireless networks to enhance workers’ capabilities, saving time and money in the long run.Dedicated NetworkA dedicated or private network is preferred as it is self-contained that can be deployed almost anywhere and managed centrally, providing a higher level of security.Harsh Work EnvironmentMetal buildings, machinery, massive magnets, extremely hot temperatures, and high humidity made it difficult to gain dependable signals or stable connections.Having tried some of the most well-known Wi-Fi and cellular solutions on the market, the IT network staff at the power plant turned to Milesight 5G CPE units with minimal investment in the new infrastructure.
Innovative Supply Chain Management: A Case Study of The Home Depot and Convoy
The Home Depot, a leading home improvement retailer, faced significant challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. The company had to deal with the possibility of social distancing in warehouse and distribution facilities, and manage extraordinarily volatile demand. The nature of their freight, which includes bulky, heavy, and difficult-to-handle items such as appliances, lumber, light fixtures, and power tools, made loading and unloading time-consuming. This potentially delayed carriers and pushed detention costs higher. The company also had to manage the additional physical asset and matching problem in the yard due to their heavy reliance on drop trailers. The pandemic further complicated these issues, necessitating a quick response to lessen the impact on drivers and implement a flexible strategy for loading and unloading trucks.
Axon Software: A Game Changer for JNB Heavy Haul
JNB Heavy Haul, a heavy haul trucking company based in Mitchell, Ontario, was facing several operational challenges. The company, which handles oversized, overweight loads across Canada and the USA, was struggling with inefficient workflows, particularly in accounting and dispatching. The company was heavily reliant on paper bills of lading, which often led to misinterpretations and errors. The invoicing process was also problematic, with a lot of duplication and re-entry of information. Tracking permits and extra costs for each load was a difficult task, often managed through Excel spreadsheets. The company was growing, and the existing systems were not scalable, leading to inefficiencies and a need for a better solution.
