The time spent searching for devices in vain is already a big financial loss in itself. A more difficult thing to measure, but very important from the point of view of operations, is the frustration of personnel due to constant searching and the consequent decrease in work motivation.
When the devices have Iiwari’s positioning tag attached, they can be found quickly even in a large facility. Iiwari’s indoor positioning system is easy to install even in an old building. The relatively small investment is worth it just because of the increase in work efficiency and motivation.
Data management is only possible by measuring, and indoor positioning for manufacturing provides a way to do this.
With Iiwari software, you can see the movement routes and speeds of both people and machines in real time. You will be able to avoid collisions, improve safety and working conditions and optimize material flows to make your work smoother, safer and more efficient.
In the video you can see, how modern log house company Salvos uses Iiwari positioning system in various ways for automatic production measurement and efficiency improvement. Video has English subtitles.
“We’ve tried all sorts of experiments, starting with coloring the tools according to the color of the workstation. Still, the tools were lost. With the Iiwari system, the problem was solved at once and cost-effectively. At the same time, we achieved the ability to measure total work time, ie the duration of phases. Now that we are developing our operations, we are able to measure whether the changes are going in the right direction or not, automatically.
It has been nice to develop the operation and product together with Iiwari. Iiwari has listened well to customer needs”.

In a smart factory, positioning can be used to automatically monitor the smoothness of production, the duration of work phases and the functionality of the layout of the production facilities, instead of short-term manual research, so-called clocking.
The assembly line defines the zones where the time spent is measured. In this way, the exact duration of each production phase and the time used by different work shifts for each production phase are known.
The management and discoverability of devices to be calibrated is made much easier with the help of Iiwari Asset Manager.
The location information automatically creates a zone alert when all the necessary parts have arrived at the assembly area and assembly can begin. Get real-time information about the stages of production.
Build a smart factory with the help of positioning.
When employees have Iiwari’s positioning device, the hourly accounting is automatically updated when the employee walks in and out of the workplace. The system enabling working time monitoring is very simple. It is easy to install at all workplace entrances, and separate manual recording is no longer needed.
A small investment is worth it because of the increase in work efficiency and motivation, and especially the ease of monitoring working hours.
For your help, we collected a list of the most important practical challenges in industry that can be solved with the Iiwari indoor positioning system. Build a smart factory with the help of positioning!
We use the Iiwari Dashboard to demonstrate how accurately the Iiwari positioning system works. It is also possible to purchase the Iiwari Development Kit for your own testing so that the benefits of historical data collected by positioning can be visually verified.
