Automotive and tyre manufacturers are at the forefront of implementing Industry 4.0 -initiatives. The aim to track and measure goods throughout manufacturing makes the complete production process more visible, efficient, and ultimately more profitable.
There are, however, some areas in the process, where assets, materials and even completed vehicles are not visible in the digital world. This applies especially to the production process of vehicles, where assets do not follow a predetermined path. The challenge is to know the location of each vehicle at any given time and subsequently avoid production delays. A situation that applies to manufacturing processes too, where raw or semi-finished materials are moved freely throughout the facility on trolleys.
To meet these challenges, Real-Time Location Systems can help you make unguided processes highly visible and integrate them into the digital landscape. Integrating an RTLS into your manufacturing landscape can be highly complex and an investment in this area should be thoroughly researched.
