Ubisense Sales Director for Aerospace, Dr Hugh Revie, will deliver a presentation on the topic of ‘Creating an MRO Digital Twin of Your Processes’ at the AIR Convention Europe 2019.
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.

With the presence of high-level representatives from the world’s leading airlines, airports, and other key industry players, the event puts the European aviation market into the main spotlight. It aims to explore the most progressive solutions of the market to ensure its stable growth and provide a venue to start successful business communication.
Ubisense Presentation at the Conference: Creating an MRO Digital Twin of Your Processes by Dr Hugh Revie
Imagine an environment where all employees know where everything is – what is currently being worked and what is next to be worked. All tasks, tools, material, and people are managed effectively to help provide a significant improvement to the efficiency of the MRO process. With ever-increasing amounts of data being captured, the technology is now available to utilise this data to the benefit of the MRO organisation.
Ubisense have developed a highly accurate and industrially proven indoor location hardware solution that works efficiently with most other location technologies including bluetooth, RFID, barcodes, GPS etc. The software platform, SmartSpace takes input from any location technology and translates the input to create a valuable digital representation of the MRO facility as it is working and enables reports to be created to help analyse and continually improve the MRO operation.
During this presentation, it will be shown how companies have been able to improve their efficiency by more than 20% by using this technology. In an MRO environment, this improvement equates to a significant financial benefit.
You will hear success use cases from aerospace and other industries including manufacturing, logistics, entertainment etc, where the same technology is used to drive efficiencies during manufacture and during aftermarket.
Dr Hugh Revie - Ubisense Sales Director, Aerospace
Hugh has now been working within the Aerospace sector for more than 30 years. He recently joined Ubisense to help them focus on the Aerospace sector. Ubisense have more than 900 customers across many sectors and have been influential at helping many of their customers implement Industry 4.0. Prior to joining Ubisense, Hugh has consistently been working with aerospace companies helping them become more efficient through using their own data more effectively.
He started his career in aviation after graduating with a doctorate in Engineering from Strathclyde University in Glasgow, Scotland. Initially he working for British Aerospace who at the time manufactured small commercial commuter aircraft. During his time with BAE Systems, he moved with his family to Toulouse, France where he was involved in helping create the joint venture with ATR and BAE Systems.
Around 18 years ago, he created his own company, CoreData Limited, which focused on providing airlines, MROs, OEMS and aircraft supply chain companies with solutions that could help them drive value from the large amounts of data they were accumulating. CoreData was a successful venture and he finally sold the company to Rolls Royce. Since then he has been working with customers to improve efficiencies by using their own data and continues to do this with Ubisense.
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 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.
