Process Monitor
Product overview

SmartSpace continuously monitors the movement of WIP, tools and equipment throughout the production process, revealing real-world production flow and detecting deviations from plan. This instantaneous view of production reality enables operations teams to proactively optimise productivity and quality, while enabling continuous improvement teams to quickly identify process waste and instability.

Process Monitor helps overcome challenges across two main areas: 

Tooling Management

  • Wasted time searching for roaming tools and equipment
  • Incorrect staging of tools and equipment in each production work zone
  • Uncoordinated use of shared equipment across multiple work zones
  • Tools and equipment not returned to approved storage locations as scheduled

Process Visibility

  • Wasted time searching for WIP
  • Delayed WIP stuck between process steps
  • Quality issues arising from missed or incorrect process steps
  • Bottlenecks caused by frequently overrunning processes
  • Low productivity caused by inefficient routing of work orders through available work zones
  • Low productivity driving WIP inventory build up and labour costs required to hit delivery schedules

Process Monitor overlays a real-time digital twin plugged into actual production flow using software-defined work zones to deliver:

  • Real-time location of all tools and equipment
  • Automatic detection of incorrect or unauthorised tools and equipment in a work zone
  • Automatic detection of tools roaming outside of their allocated work zones
  • Real-time alerts for tools and equipment that haven’t returned to stores on time
  • Real-time location of all WIP
  • Automatic alerts highlighting delayed WIP
  • Real-time detection of process sequence errors
  • Automatic identification of unstable processes
  • Identify priority WIP and match with available resources
