Ubisense launches Visible Industrial Process (VIP)


16-04-2010

Ubisense launches another application in its Manufacturing Solution Suite, Ubisense Visible Industrial Process (VIP). The new application enables complete visibility of production components, process, assemblies and sub-assemblies, across multiple sites.

Ubisense has developed Ubisense VIP in response to requirements from a number of strategic customers, including Airbus. It is designed to give production integration control managers accurate, real-time location information and production status on sub-assemblies at various stages of production at multiple remote manufacturing sites, sometimes based in different countries.

Earlier this year Airbus selected Ubisense to extend the world’s largest radio-frequency identification (RFID) enabled manufacturing initiative, with the addition of the Ubisense RTLS across a number of locations.

The Ubisense Manufacturing Solution Suite includes Ubisense Process Tracker, which allows items to be tracked throughout a production process and Ubisense Asset Manager, which allows easy identification, retrieval, calibration and configuration of tools and components, and is already widely used in manufacturing plants from Korea to the US, by steel manufacturers and foundries as well as aircraft and automotive plants.

The Ubisense Manufacturing Solution Suite is also being deployed by the world’s largest industrial tool manufacturer, Atlas Copco, who has integrated it with their ToolsNet system.

 

Ubisense VIP combines the benefits of its existing manufacturing solutions with additional features, which include web-based user configuration, support for multiple-site operation, and the management of multiple-components and multiple tags per component. The Ubisense Manufacturing Solution Suite provides customers with a real-time view of critical business operations, such as the tracking of components and assembly processes, thus improving communication, increasing production throughput, and making planning more effective.

“We are excited to announce the launch of Ubisense VIP” said Richard Green, Ubisense CEO. “The Ubisense Manufacturing Solution Suite provides greater visibility and control across our customers’ plants, and aids the decision making and planning process by giving them real-time, actionable information instantaneously. Further development and adoption of VIP helps them to improve their processes and will assist them in maintaining their competitive advantage through increased productivity.”
