ID is linked to the existing order data. Depending on the process step and
order status, order information can then be displayed on the Simatic RTLS ePaper
transponders, providing a paperless solution. Location Intelligence also offers users the
opportunity to track individual workpieces or the entire order in real time. When
the order ID is entered, the real-time positions of linked transponders are
shown on the customer’s digital card.
The transparency achieved by this technology enables the individual optimization of production and logistics processes. The key to this is virtually defined areas known as geofences. They can be created in the software using drag & drop, and are used to detect entry into and exit from defined areas. The associated entry and exit events can be statistically evaluated, visualized or linked to additional actions.
