The Internet of Things (IoT) is poised to revolutionize manufacturing and global supply chains, promising to make factories smarter, more agile and profitable. But the truth is, organizations must overcome major interoperability challenges to realize its full potential.
The IoT works by seamless connecting machines, devices and sensors over an intelligent network. However, many IoT sensor solutions are not designed for interoperability with other brands, data formats or legacy systems.
Learn how Tapestry Solutions has addressed these challenges with Enterprise Sensor Integration (ESI) during RFID Journal’s 2018 Internet of Things Virtual Event, scheduled Tuesday, July 24, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. EST.
Tapestry’s Todd Fields, Senior Director of Strategy, will discuss how ESI-enabled RFID technology has solved interoperability challenges for Boeing and BAE Systems.
ESI is a sensor-agnostic IoT platform that seamlessly integrates myriad sensor technologies that track, monitor and control assets and workflow processes – ensuring connectivity across all brands, manufacturers and ERP systems.
Operating in the cloud or on dedicated services, ESI has global enterprise scalability that ensures total asset visibility of parts, equipment and processes, anywhere in the world. ESI connects various data sources into a single user interface through data fusion – giving decision-makers a complete picture of their asset movements and inventory.
At BAE Systems, Tapestry replaced existing manual processes with an automated, enterprise-level RFID solution that efficiently tracks and manages inventory, assets/tools and workflow processes. Today, the technology provides BAE Systems with the capability to track over 200,000 assets, 30,000 parts and an estimated 6,500 work orders at its plants.
At Boeing, ESI seamlessly connects more than 100 sensor technologies at 50 factories, and is proven to handle over 6 billion tag reads per week. ESI saved Boeing more than $100 million during its first year alone and continues to generate savings each year by improving productivity, reducing inventory costs and increasing supply chain visibility.
