One of the key challenges with the migration to Industry 4.0 is ensuring that key assets which are part of the manufacturing process are delivered in time to maintain operational efficiencies on the factory floor. Many times misplaced or lost parts can result in inefficiencies as staff waste time searching for parts reducing operational efficiency and ultimately output. In the worst case, manufacturing lines can stop. There are many solutions on the market today to solve the problem however legacy solutions either didn’t have the range to extend over large areas, indoor + outdoor, or had very poor battery life requiring constant charging. With the advent of LPWAN IoT networks, this has all changed. Now industries can benefit from modern asset tracking solutions which can work indoor and out and have very long battery life with small compact form factors. Come learn about how LPWAN asset tracking solutions can impact your business.
