Manufacturing

Digitize processes for increased production efficiency that set the new efficacy standards in production logistics. We digitize the part of industrial production that nobody would - but definitely should!

Pozi Technologies’ industry-grade indoor positioning and identification system is an intelligent, versatile intralogistics super-tool that significantly increases the efficiency of any manufacturing operation, while reducing costs and increasing operational safety.

Pozitech automatically gathers detailed real-time tracking information about the position and movement of all items in the production process - from raw materials to the finished product. This data identifies and eliminates a significant portion of lean waste, while allowing more comprehensive planning, analysis, and control of production.

Pozitech thoroughly digitizes the entire process of production logistics, increases efficiency, and leads to transparent and measurable operations.

Problem

Manufacturers often face problems that result in higher production costs, slower processes, or more frequent inventory discrepancies:

  • production planning and control has limited direct information and no real-time feedback about processes
  • inventory items and parts  are  often misplaced
  • no accurate information is available on the exact path  of  manufacturing processes in a production line

Proposed solution

Pozitech automatically tracks any given object in real-time,  providing an integrated answer to  the different aspects of material handling and warehouse-automation challenges:

  • all items and articles are automatically tracked using the technology most suitable for the respective environment
  • a sophisticated reporting and tracking system gives real-time information on item or vehicle positions
  • every process,   path, or movement of tracked objects is precisely documented, yielding  valuable data for process planning, quality management, and inventory tracking

With Pozitech you can

...tell where in the factory a part or stock item is

  • warehouse shelf location
  • production position
  • transport or processing equipment

...assign a task remotely to the part handler and track it in real time

  • position (physical and logical)
  • task (processing station, route, delivery point)
  • item (automatically registered when moved)

...monitor the entire production process by track-and-tracing products, equipment or containers during

  • warehousing and picking
  • processing and assembly
  • delivery

The TIMWOOD experience

Pozitech identifies and eliminates over 5 out of 7 lean waste areas responsible for 83% percent of waste in any given manufacturing process - a large part of which is usually unknown to production managers:

  • Transportation: Moving the product around unnecessarily is a waste of time, effort, and  increases the likelihood that it will be damaged.
  • Inventory: Identifying unused materials reduces wasted capital. It is money just sitting around in the form of raw materials (0% complete), work-in-process (50% complete), or finished goods (100% complete).
  • Motion: The “wear and tear” on the equipment or people involved in transporting the product around unnecessarily, wasting time, but also wasting the resources of the trucks, forklifts, and employees.
  • Waiting: Time that the part or product is sitting around – not being transported or processed.
  • Over-production: Producing more than is necessary is often caused by inaccurate stock information.
  • Over-processing: N/A
  • Defects: N/A
