SpotBot Cellular, a damage-monitoring device, can be placed on
automotive parts to track impacts sustained during transit. Auto parts
often travel through various warehouses before reaching the final
assembly line, providing several opportunities for damages to be
incurred. SpotBot Cellular can also be used to record changes in
temperature, and tilt and roll conditions. To avoid damage, items like
auto glass should remain in an upright position. As such, a SpotBot
monitor is attached to ensure minimal movement throughout transportation.
“Real-time alerts provide supply chain transparency and allow companies
to make necessary changes to ensure safer handling and transportation of
auto parts and components,” said Angela Kerr, vice president of product
portfolio, SpotSee. “Results vary based on situation, but the damage
rate typically drops by 50 percent or more when a monitor is in place.”
Identifying problems as they happen also increases the response to just
in sequence (JIS) supply and assembly line issues. A JIS strategy is
used to create a more efficient assembly line by delivering parts
according to a strict production timeline. If a piece of operating
equipment in a JIS assembly line is damaged, the schedule is delayed,
creating large windows of downtime. With real-time monitors in place to
alert operators of issues, companies can proactively maintain assembly
lines and repair equipment before complete failure occurs. This reduces
downtime and any associated costs.
Data collected from monitoring devices is stored in the SpotSee Cloud,
which can be accessed from any web-based device. This allows users to
access, visualize and analyze their data in real time from anywhere.
