Making IoT Relevant To Assembly Processes
SmartSpace extends existing business systems to make them connect naturally to the real-world. By creating a real-time digital twin of assembly processes, SmartSpace’s constant vigilance empowers people to make more insightful decisions, and business systems to operate with foresight and certainty.
SmartSpace enhances existing business and process data with a context that captures the location, flow and interaction of the constantly moving parts of an assembly process, from WIP to tools to raw materials and beyond. “By making this connection to the reality of production flow, SmartSpace’s process logic instantly detects activities that are contrary to plan or procedure, and flags those for action through its many interfaces,” says Adrian Jennings, Chief Product Advocate. “These connections include interfaces to systems such as ERP and MES, directly to other controls and devices, and most importantly to people.”
SmartSpace applications in assembly plants include automatic process error-proofing, paperless inspection, safety and quality compliance, complex process optimisation, next-step decision support and many more. SmartSpace is deployed globally in Fortune 500 manufacturers across automotive, aerospace, commercial and agricultural vehicle assembly, and other industries where complex moving processes require constant supervision. Ubisense will be demonstrating SmartSpace on booth 2105 and discussing how it is architected to support a phased roadmap to factory digitisation.
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.

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 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.
