Process Control
Product overview

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.

Process Control has been designed to help alleviate the challenges caused by the inflexibility of traditional assembly processes in two key areas of planning and operations.

Planning challenges Operational challenges 
Inability to interleave variable length processes into the same physical space Line stops caused by overrunning stressed processes

Inability to incorporate long takt-time workstations

Cost and inconvenience of relocating fixed tooling

Reduced productivity from unavoidable waiting time Cost and inconvenience of relocating fixed process control infrastructure.
Wasted time due to manual product identification  

Inability to incorporate mobile processes including online rework and digital inspection

 

Process Control replaces mechanically defined workstations with software-defined work zones in order to: 

  • Automatically reconfigure work zone length to match model and type
  • Seamlessly integrate extended-length work zones
  • Allow work zone overlap to eliminate waiting time
  • Eliminate manual product identification time required to trigger processes
  • Create virtual work zones that follow the product to control mobile device behaviour
  • Allocate temporary work zone extensions to complete overrunning tasks
  • Drag and drop digital tethers to rapidly relocate tools to different work zones
  • Drag and drop digital identification points to rapidly relocate process controls.

What our clients say

Ubisense have been a great partner with us…. Very happy with the support that they’ve given us.

Aldric Pavec, Claas Production Manager, said: “As a leading tractor manufacturer throughout Europe, Claas offers an extremely wide choice of vehicle models in order to meet the needs of modern agriculture “By adding Ubisense technology to the facility at Le Mans, we will be able to best cope with product complexity while reducing waste.”

In May 2017 we began a feasibility study on Ubisense products in Thailand. We were of the view that the latest information technology based on Ubisense market-leading RTLS technology would attract the potential demand for breakthrough improvement in the production and logistics operations across the region.

We soon recognized that it would make sense to bring in Ubisense products to further enhance the competitive edge of various industries in Thailand.
