Link Productivity to Location and Flow
Location-Aware Kanban Board
Visualize job routes on the shop floor and organize them into a process flow. Sensors on bins or pallets track WIP locations, and check-in/out of geo-fenced areas enables PeopleFlow to track an item through a process. Misplaced items are highlighted on a Kanban card to quickly locate them on the floor or in inventory.
Always-On Time-and-Motion Studies
Highlight travel path, time, and distance of people, inventory, or equipment equipped with sensors in a Spaghetti Diagram. Use the generated Spaghetti Diagram to analyze waste related to Motion. Can you reorganize or move your tools or materials locations? Can you layout your work centers to reduce travel time or distance?
Locate Equipment + Inventory
A typical lost tool or inventory item takes over 20 minutes to find and often involves more than one person to locate it. Scale that to your operations and the number of occurrences, and you're looking at days of lost productivity. PeopleFlow Instant Locate allows sensor-equipped inventory and tools to be located on a map instantly.
Use the power of data to see issues in your workplace -- before they become major problems.
- Always-On data collection to run studies and scenarios
- Staff and Visitor privacy is designed into PeopleFlow
- Capture movement & interaction data for 100s of 1000s
- Wearables ensure privacy and reliability
How Does PeopleFlow For Industry Work?
1. Install Sensors + Tags
Deploy Sensors to determine location of PeopleFlow tags with 1-2m accuracy. Assign PeopleFlow Tags to employees or visitors or stick on equipment, tools, inventory, and work-in-process. Integrate MRP to support notifications & reporting.
2. Capture Data
Always-On Data captures the movement of people and things throughout the plant and the interactions between people and things, things and things, and people and people. Add location to your inventory, equipment, process flows, and plant floor staff.
3. Run Process Improvement Studies
Lean Tools for identifying waste enable you to track and locate work-in-process and inventory in a Kanban board, run time-and-motion studies to build a Spaghetti Diagram for the layout of your work centers and stores, and quickly find lost inventory.
REQUEST A COST ESTIMATE
PeopleFlow Contact Trace costs are primarily driven by the number of staff at your facility. There are incremental costs for installing data collectors at strategic points in your facility to offload the interaction information from PeopleFlow Tags that employees will wear while on your site. A floorplan will allow us to estimate the infrastructure costs at your facility – we are primarily looking for the number of entry/egress points, common areas, and other spaces where people pass through on a regular basis.
We find that clients aren’t comfortable talking about technology until they have a sense of their end costs. An estimate can give you some comfort before speaking to sales about your needs.
