Aerospace and Defence

Aerospace and Defence manufacturers need to increase their operations performance by improving manufacturing cycle times, output, and overall effectiveness, which can be achieved by reducing non-value-added work from their manufacturing processes and reducing inventory costs.

Ubisense Smart Factory solutions provide visibility into production status and workflow across any aerospace manufacturing operation. Real-time location intelligence provides a layer above the manufacturing systems that can gather and aggregate data from many sources that provides real-time visibility of the current manufacturing situation, and detailed historical information that can be used to analyse and improve the whole manufacturing process.

The assembly process involves component part and assembly movement logistics and requires high-value tools and jigs at each stage. Ubisense real-time location systems (RTLS) provides high fidelity location of moving objects.  Fusing this location data with other data from business systems, control systems and manually-entered data Smart Factory delivers visibility of and control over assets and processes. Smart Factory reports and displays the history of asset movement and containment within defined areas, reducing the time taken to locate important assets and providing detailed analysis on asset movement over time.

Smart Factory enables aerospace and defence manufacturing companies to monitor process adherence, measure process performance and identify assembly and asset locations, dramatically improving the ability to hit production targets and reduce inventory carrying costs by:

  • Alerting production staff to process anomalies
  • Identifying production bottlenecks which can be improved
  • Graphically displaying and reporting the historical movement of assets over a given time period
  • Minimise Foreign Object Damage
  • Rapidly locate tooling to be calibrated
