Internal Logistics

Internal Logistics

Until recently, it was hard to measure the efficiency of internal logistics. Thanks to implementing RTLS technologies, it is possible to analyse utilisation of technologies in time, adherence to set plans and movement in different zones. After the audit, it is possible to actively manage logistics by deploying the calling system with IIoT, WMS and SAP.

Safety

Safety

Safety is becoming increasingly dominant and localisation of isolated employees is becoming more easily available. RTLS technologies make it possible to not only localise employees but, when necessary, to also set off the alarm. The alarm can be initiated by a fall or inertia in a dangerous place.

Facility management

Facility management

With an increasing pressure on efficiency of utilisation of premises, RTLS technologies finally provide a simply implementable solution for auditing such premises. Subsequently, it is possible to use collected data to improve the quality and ergonomics of the workplace. Kiosk applications, on the other hand, help visitors to better orientate in unknown places.

Calling system

Calling system

The calling system is another step following the internal logistics audit. By installing various IIoT (Industrial Internet of things) sensors and tablets, it is possible to accelerate and simplify communication among operators and forklift drivers. Along with the calling, tablets can also be used to keep records of the performance, control sheets, etc.

Material flow

Material flow

Thanks to openness of the platform, it is possible to analyse any process – either material flow or running of the production line. By collecting data from the production line, it is possible to visualise production at real time and, subsequently, in the history, identify reasons of bottlenecks and other issues. A digital twin has never been so close.

Auditing tool

Auditing tool

Among methods still used for the purposes of short-term auditing of the work of employees are taking physical photographs or taking screenshots from the camera system. Thus, analysing movement in larger premises is very time consuming and inefficient. Mobile auditing tool based on UWB makes it possible to perform such audit quickly and simply.

"IPS is one of the solutions that will, in our opinion, build the big future of facility management. Thanks to INFOTECH, we now have a flexible and reliable partner that managed to implement IPS solution based on our requirements. After offices in Bratislava, we will jointly implement IPS also in other branches."
