Ubisense transforms physical spaces into smart spaces, bringing manufacturers proven gains in quality, cost, and productivity. Our SmartSpace platform monitors the physical flow of the factory creating a real-time “digital twin” of the process. This Digital Process Twin provides the deep situational awareness that empowers people to make more insightful decisions, and business systems to operate with foresight and certainty. With offices in the UK, France, Germany, North America, Canada and Japan, Ubisense has more than 900 customers across the globe, and has enabled many to implement their factory digitisation strategies.

Ubisense Presentation at The IoT Tech Expo 2019 – by Adrian Jennings: Extending the Digital Twin to Manual Processes
IoT focuses on connectivity between “things” – devices, machines, tools etc., but in certain industries processes are still overwhelmingly planned, supervised and executed by people. In this presentation Adrian Jennings describes how the standard notion of the IoT “Digital Twin” has limited value in these applications, leaving large parts of critical processes completely opaque and unconnected. Using real-world case studies as examples, Adrian will explain technologies that are extending the Digital Twin to encompass manual activities and how significant value is being created as a result.

SmartSpace Inbound Logistics Monitor
SmartSpace monitors the location of WIP in the yard, where high volumes of finished and unfinished product are widely dispersed around site, awaiting the next phase in their production lifecycle. Operations teams can now instantly find individual or groups of products, increasing productivity by eliminating search waste.
SmartSpace Production Logistics Monitor
Ubisense monitors the flow of kits and subassemblies in the plant and detects deviations from plan creating a real-time view of status and alerts. Operations teams can now proactively maintain JIT and JIS flow from origin to point of use with the aid of real-time guidance and automatic verification.
SmartSpace Process Control
Ubisense virtualises physical process controls and removes the constraints of traditionally fixed workstations. This frees up planning teams from fixed TAKT times and can better align process design with product complexity. Operational teams can quickly reconfigure and rebalance the line to rapidly react to product and process changes.
SmartSpace Process Monitor
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.
SmartSpace Yard Monitor
SmartSpace Yard Monitor helps to solve a range of challenges caused by delays owing to yard audit and search.
SmartSpace Asset Monitor
SmartSpace monitors the location of tools and equipment throughout multiple production sites, where build and test processes are widely dispersed. Operations teams can now instantly find required resources, increasing productivity and decreasing order-to-delivery times by eliminating search waste.
SmartSpace Compliance Monitor
SmartSpace brings multiple different assembly and MRO verification processes together in a reliable, digital build record for complex products and assemblies. With both real-time and digital-ledger capabilities integrated into one platform, operations teams can rely on SmartSpace to immediately identify non-conforming tool, equipment or parts use within their assembly process, while quality and compliance teams gain a digital build record that is unmatched in both detail and reliability.
SmartSpace Tooling Management
SmartSpace continuously monitors the movement of tools and equipment throughout the production process, revealing real-world movements, utilisation and detecting non-compliant use. This real-time view of utilisation enables operations teams to improve productivity by ensuring tools and equipment are optimally distributed and used, non-conformant tools are quarantined and inventory levels are optimised.
Industrial IoT at enterprise scale
SmartSpace is an enterprise platform that uses location and identification from any source to create visibility of real-world objects and their interactions, enabling complex manufacturing processes with high levels of variability to be more flexible, easier to manage and easier to control.
