Today, modern manufacturers are continually tasked with optimizing operations, ensuring uptime and maintaining visibility throughout production. The push toward smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0 is introducing increased connectivity and automation throughout the daily workflow in order to produce quality products while reducing costs and minimizing downtime.
Organizations are looking to accelerate improvements by connecting machines, people, data and value chains throughout their facility. The movement toward “smart” factories can deliver measurable business results and is expected to be the main driver of manufacturing competitiveness in the next five years. And all of this must come together while ensuring a production environment that is safe and secure for employees, visitors, property and assets.
The Safe Manufacturing integrated ecosystem allows you to address everyday concerns as well as emerging situations through the four pillars — Detect, Analyze, Communicate, and Respond. Keep scrolling to explore how these pillars work together to address your manufacturing challenges through the example of a Restricted/Hazardous Risk Area.
Overseeing the widespread and diverse areas and machinery of your facility can be a challenge. From controlling multiple points of entry to monitoring worker safety and securing key areas and equipment, detection plays a critical role in improving situational awareness and decreasing response times to potential issues and operational problems
Integrated video security uses artificial intelligence to create high visibility across your diverse facility all in one view.
All of this comes together to provide you with better insights — so you always know what is happening across your facility.
You’re responsible for monitoring a large facility filled with workers, secure areas, vast spaces, critical materials and equipment. Identifying unwanted individuals, tracking persons of interest, locating missing inventory and recognizing hazardous situations in this environment is a demanding task.
Appearance Search capabilities quickly and seamlessly explore video footage to identify persons or vehicles of interest across the plant floor or parking lot.
Ultimately, these solutions and insights are crucial to cutting through the noise, proactively locating points of interest and recognizing which events are important — so you can have eyes on the scene to evaluate and make an informed decision to take action
Whether you are a foreman on-site needing to routinely communicate with your floor staff, plant management and other areas of the plant, or a response team dealing with a large-scale emergency such as a dangerous accident or hazardous material spill, clear and timely communication is key to keeping your teams connected and informed.
Whether it’s an everyday incident or an emergency situation, your response teams and facility personnel need to communicate with each other to coordinate a response in the most efficient way possible. Being ready and aware is critical to ensuring your team can quickly respond to incidents or problems before they escalate — decreasing downtime, maintaining productivity and ensuring the health and safety of workers.
Because enabling rapid response and documenting past incidents can be the key to preventing incidents from becoming tragedies.
It’s time to reimagine what safety technology can do for your manufacturing facility — driving efficiencies, bolstering performance, and assuring your teams are working safer, smarter, and more productively.CONTACT US
