Factory

By using EXBeacon platform, we can figure out the time and location of people and things (materials, manufactured goods, pallets, forklifts) in the factory and analyze their routes to improve the workflow. We can carry out location management, detailed workflow management, workflow improvement and time management which used to be very difficult. In addition, we can implement failure prevention detection linked with sensors attached to equipment and manage the safety and health condition of workers, using vital sensor information.

■Main functions and services

  • Employee attendance management (free address / fixed seat)
  • Entrance / exit management, work management
  • Visitor access management
  • Indoor environmental management (room temperature, CO2)
  • Failure prevention detection of machinery etc.
  • Worker safety management (Vital sensor information)

■ Cooperation with production management system

In the case of factories, IoT DB is connected not only to the EXBeacon platform but also to external systems such as PLCs, and accumulates various information in the factory.

IoT DB is the reality of the digital twin. 1) Providing on-site management information to MES and ERP as appropriate, 2) Providing on-site support services at all times, 3) Analyzing accumulated information using various analysis tools The The amount of information collected by the EXBeacon platform will be 1000 times that of conventional information.

■Case study

Grasping work progress using work ledger

[Customer] Toshiba Elevator Products Co., Ltd.

・ Machine manufacturing work process management system in a large assembly factory. A work ledger that is moving with the work in process group is attached with a BLE tag, a receiver (EXBeacon) is attached to the ledger, and the work progress in each work area is grasped.

Position detection of work in process and workers / MES linkage

[Customer] Major musical instrument manufacturer

・ Detects work in progress at a specified location and performs detailed process management.

・ Collect the time required for each process by collecting the location information of workers.

・ In conjunction with MES, improve the quality of production management.

Pallet position detection with directional beacons

[Customer] Major automobile manufacturer

・ Location management of “metal pallets” in the factory

-Tag each pallet and determine the position more accurately by performing boundary judgment using directional beacons.

Grasping progress using 1m positioning method

[Customer] Major precision machine manufacturer

・ Manufacturing process management in precision machinery factory.

-Use for process management by placing products with pressure sensors, and checking for work-in-process and workers with directional beacons.

Location management of employees and work in progress using card-type tags

[Customer] Nakamura Manufacturing Co., Ltd.

・ Managing the location of people and things at the parts production factory.

-Manage the position of work in progress by attaching an ultra-thin card type tag to the clear file on the work management table (paper).

-In addition to the current location of employees, the return home rack is used to manage the returnees at the same time.

Automatic generation of work results from collected location information

[Customer] Major precision machine manufacturer

・ Manufacturing process management in precision machinery factory.

-Use for process management by placing products with pressure sensors, and checking for work-in-process and workers with directional beacons.
