Manufacturing Real-Time Tracking Systems

Track Personnel, Equipment and Manufacturing Production Processes

Real-time locating systems (RTLS) ​are successfully used ​today in industrial and manufacturing facilities to have visibility into the precise, real-time location of an personnel and assets. RTLS technology is used to track the location of floor workers and valuable equipment, as well as the manufacturing production process from beginning to end.

IdentiSys offers an RTLS solution that requires minimal hardware — Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) sensor beacons and Bluetooth / WiFi gateways​ — saving organizations with costs involved in expensive infrastructure setup of antennas, servers, cable, etc. With ​this cloud-based solution, no server configuration is required and data can be transferred to the cloud using existing WiFi.

Manufacturing Tracking

Tracking Beacons

  • ​Employees and visitors are tracked via sensor beacons. Beacons for personnel tracking are available as ID badges or wristbands.
Personnel Beacons
  • Manufacturing process, material flow and equipment is tracked with small beacons that can easily affix or adhere to objects.
Asset Beacons

RTLS ​Applications in ​Manufacturing

There are many ways to utilize RTLS in ​manufacturing, including:

  • Visitor Location Tracking - Track the real-time location of visitors.
  • Visitor Wayfinding - Help visitors get to the correct room or area without struggling to find their way around the building.
  • Staff Location Tracking - Track the real-time location of staff in the ​building. 
  • Secure Restricted Areas - Set user-defined real-time alerts when a person enters a restricted area or an ‘authorized personnel only’ area.
  • Production/Manufacturing Process Tracking - ​Track goods, materials, work orders, and assembly lines.
  • Condition Monitoring - ​M​aintain operational health of equipment by monitoring environmental fluctuations of temperature, motion and vibration.
  • Cold Chain Monitoring - Maintain an optimal temperature of storage, distribution and handling of supplies.
  • Equipment Tracking - Track valued equipment assets within the facility for inventory management and theft prevention.
  • Evacuation and Mustering - Account for ​staff and visitors at mustering points during an evacuation drill or real emergency.
  • Emergency Accountability - Location reports provide first responders and security personnel with a list of people who remain in affected areas.
RTLS tracking solutions include complete audit trail reporting capabilities.
