Accelerating Smart Factory Transformation
Enterprise Sensor Integration (ESI) is a powerful middleware solution that revolutionizes asset tracking and management for manufacturing, supply chain and sustainment operations. ESI intelligently connects sensors to improve visibility and decision-making across the enterprise. ESI provides huge savings and transformational levels of efficiency, accelerating smart factory transformation.
The smart integration platform connects various data sources into a single user interface, giving decision-makers a complete picture of their asset movements and inventory. It provides a “sensor agnostic” platform for managing data, regardless of hardware and sensor types or brands. It can operate in the cloud or on dedicated on-premise servers.
ESI seamlessly connects a wide range of tags and sensors, including RFID position-information tags, passive and active GPS-enabled WiFi tags, as well as embedded hardware and complex servers.
The Boeing Implementation
Our enterprise-class sensor integration solution is based on core technology we successfully implemented at the Boeing Company, called the Automated Identification Technology - Information Management System (AIT-IMS). The solution has been rolled out to over 300 facilities across Boeing, touching thousands of users daily.
Along with the improved data, Boeing has reduced the amount of resource hours throughout the production process, saving Boeing an estimated $70 million per year. It has also improved situational awareness and safety with real-time alerts.
