With millions of containers used in manufacturing environments around the world, inefficient container management wastes time and money. Automated container management uses precise RTLS data on container location and status on the shopfloor to improve overall container transparency and utilization. Automated container management also enables automated bookings and secures flawless process documentation.
In this 30-minute session, you will…
Automating container or load carrier management improves overall inventory management, cycle time, and process documentation. Having real-time transparency about the status and location of containers such as crates, small or large load carriers, pallet boxes or pallets, reduces time spent searching for containers and eliminates production bottlenecks. This allows manufacturers to cut cost and lead time in their assembly and production processes. Automated container management eliminates non-productive search and idle times as well as transportation and inventory cost through demand-driven replenishment.
The value and benefits of process automation in industrial production
KINEXON attaches indoor location tags to containers to generate their precise position data on the shopfloor through Real-time Locating Systems (RTLS). Our Location-based Process Automation (LPA) software KINEXON OS turns your shopfloor into a powerful digital twin that enables you to automate and optimize processes through the interaction of location data, geofences, and event triggers.
KINEXON is a global technology leader in full-stack industrial IoT solutions. Our agile and scalable software KINEXON OS automates industrial processes through indoor location data from technologies such as BLE, UWB, or RFID. This enables leading customers in industries such as automotive, aerospace & defense, and discrete manufacturing to cut costs, increase cycle speed, and optimize documentation in production-critical processes. Automating container management adds value from day one and can be scaled into unlimited process automation use cases.
The indoor location system KINEXON RTLS enables full visibility of container movements and status in real time.
KINEXON OS is your central software to automate and optimize container movements and utilization via indoor location data.
Ultra-wideband (UWB) technology is the gold standard for indoor localization via RTLS with up to 10cm positioning accuracy.
More about UWB
Capture all real-time container location data on the shopfloor and visualize the position including and the status of the container.
Attach individual properties to each container to visualize their status via icons and ensure all metadata are available.
The KINEXON Search & Find App helps end users find Containers via their mobile devices.
With the integration and management of comprehensive data (e.g., maintenance data), the container inventory is monitored in real time.
The integration of user-specific views via a client-based system enables targeted container management per functional area.
Automate replenishment control by tracking minimum quantities of empty containers per functional area.
Automatic transport orders are triggered by integrating interfaces to third-party systems. This is the basis for material flow analysis and advanced reporting.
