Add visibility to the shopfloor
Tracking orders and operators on the factory floor
Tracking operators and orders optimizes production, enhances quality, and facilitates agile decision-making, leading to efficient and effective factory operations.
Pozyx is an invaluable tool for your production manager, process engineer, finance manager and even sales team.
- Real-time tracking of orders, operators, carts or other equipment
- Get real-time KPI's for your workflow
- Elimination of scanning operations at every step in your process
- Better manage priority orders
Use cases of asset tracking
Below, we list some of the use-cases for tracking on the factory floor
Use Pozyx to track orders, operators and equipment throughout your production workflows and reduce labor costs wasted on scanning and searching orders.
Whenever a process is not fully automated, issues can occur without being detected. This can lead to production delays, inefficiencies or loss in quality. Pozyx allows you to easily define rules for detecting such issues.
- Avoid buffers overflowing or buffers being empty
- Get warnings when an order is not following its workflow
- Warn when orders or material is sitting idle too long
- Detect equipment being used at the wrong workstation
- Get warnings when workstations are empty
- Detect which material is about to expire
The system makes it easy to organize all warnings and can provide dashboards to track the evolution of issues, or to make real-time decisions.
In a production environment with lots of variability and manual labor, it is difficult to know the exact production times for each production step. Hence, it’s not possible to know what the labour cost details are, or where possible inefficiency can be found.
With the Pozyx system, it is possible to measure the actual bill of labor by tracking both the operator and the orders on the shop floor. This allows you to control profitability on product level or even per order.
In make to order environments (MTO) and quick response manufacturing (QRM), real-time efficiency data can optimize cost calculations and eliminate variability in operations. Pozyx was made to support lean transformation and continuous improvement and is also useful in more mature QRM environments.
The RTLS system enhances takt time, increases operator efficiency (OOE), overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), measures and increases overall efficiency.
Pozyx addresses and tackles all 8 wastes in lean manufacturing.
Monitoring operators can ensure adherence to safety protocols and compliance with regulations, creating a secure working environment.
Supervisors can ensure that employees are following safety protocols such as using equipment correctly, and maintaining safe working distances. For example, alerting the supervisor if an operator is too close to a hazardous area without authorization or training.
