InSight, InControl: Real-time position and quality monitoring for production material transports

Matching themes: Asset Tracking, Condition Monitoring, Digital Supply Chain, Inbound Supply Chain, IoT, Material Visibility, SCPM, Security of supply, Sensors, Smart Supply Chain, Track & Trace

By combining asset tracking and condition monitoring of the production material during transport, you can initiate appropriate countermeasures in case of alarming signals long before goods receipt.
By combining real-time asset tracking and condition monitoring of production material during transport, you can initiate appropriate countermeasures to keep your production running long before goods receipt.

A materials controller needs up-to-date information at all times for production planning purposes. He needs to know whether the goods required are going to arrive at the plant in time – and whether they will do so in an intact state, a very important point when it comes to sensitive components. And all this preferably in real time, of course. But this is a lot more than what most track-and-trace solutions have to offer. Read more
