Time saved in searching for assets in the factory or warehouse
Takt time reduction through better production visibility
Decrease in equipment spendings thanks to better utilisation rate
RTLS in Manufacturing
Real-time location systems (RTLS) are used in manufacturing to track the location and status of equipment, tools, and personnel in real-time. RTLS technology uses a combination of wireless communication (BLE, UWB, LoRa...), hardware, and software (Location Engine, End-user Application, tools...) to provide precise, real-time information about the location and status of assets within a manufacturing facility.
Overall, Ubudu RTLS system for manufacturing is used to improve operational efficiency, reduce downtime, and enhance safety in manufacturing environments. The best technology for a particular use case will depend on the specific requirements and constraints of the application. It may be necessary to use a combination of different technologies to achieve the desired results.
Track the location of work orders
Track the precise location of work orders for real-time and transparent visibility on production operations with automatic alerts for detected delays.
Reduce time spent by operators searching for work orders to increase productivity
Show the real-time location of all work orders on a map so that operators don't waste time searching for them.
Avoid production interruptions and delays
Receive real-time alerts by email in case a work order has spent too much time in a specific workstation in order to take the necessary action to avoid any delay or interruption.
Optimise production flow by identifying bottlenecks
Analyse how your work orders move between different workstations, how long they stay in each zone and which path they take between zones to continuously improve your workflow and enhance the production process.
Provide real-time visibility on work order status to your account managers
Account managers can filter by client name all the orders in production to quickly check where they are and therefore understand their status to keep their clients informed and anticipate any delay.
Track the location of tools & equipment
Track the precise location of tools & equipment used on your shop-floor to measure their utilisation rates based on their movement data. Receive automatic alerts in case a tool exits a specific zone or if it doesn't move for a long time.
Reduce time spent by operators searching for tools & equipment to increase productivity
Show the real-time location of all tools & equipment on a map so that operators don't waste time searching for them.
Increase tools & equipment utilisation rate
Analyse the utilisation rates of tools & equipment based on how much time they spend in different zones and how often they move from one zone to another.
Optimise intra-logistics flows
Following a continuous improvement approach, analyse the flows of your Material Handling Equipment (MHE) to optimise their circuits and avoid any material shortage in your workstations.
Prevent accidents from happening on your site by alerting in real-time workers of nearby hazards and make sure all staff is safe when an emergency occurs.
Avoid accidents between machine and workers
Send a real-time alert to pedestrian workers and machine operators when they get too close to each other to prevent collisions.
Better control access to hazardous areas
Remind workers of the danger in the hazardous area before they enter through a real-time alert.
Locate workers in case of emergency
Ensure all your workers have evacuated the area where an emergency or accident happened to avoid leaving anyone behind.

What they say about us
Ubudu's RTLS solution provides beneficial functionality through a combination of technologies and a platform that simplifies data analysis. Thank you to the technical and sales teams for their responsiveness and efficiency.
We are proud to be working hand in hand with renowned tech company Ubudu in bringing SDA+ and RTLS into the SM4RT TRACE suite of solutions. Thanks to Ubudu’s expertise and experience with the technology itself, we are able to make Malaysian offices, factories and warehouses safer and more efficient.
Ubudu hybrid RTLS platform provides us the necessary flexibility to go-to-market and address different customers’ needs with competitive offerings. With its out-of-the-box applications and tools, the solution is easy to deploy and customer onboarding is smooth.
Ubudu has enabled us to secure pedestrian movements in our sorting centres in a simple, quick and large-scale way. This solution is more easily adopted by our employees, unlike the more expensive and limited solutions we had previously deployed.
The collaboration with Ubudu has been effective and together we work toward excellence in every aspect of project delivery.
A simple solution to make operators aware of the areas of interaction with the machines.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is there something you need to know?
The ROI of RTLS in a manufacturing plant depends on the use case and on the costs of the solution (especially cabling costs). Ubudu hybrid RTLS can be deployed with different technical architectures in order to optimise the costs of the solution based on the client needs. With this approach, the ROI is between 6 to 12 months.
The time spent by operators searching for assets in manufacturing and logistics plants have been reduced by 60-80%. This means that not only the operators have more time to spend on added-value operations and be more productive but it also revalues the work of operators by giving them the tools to be more efficient.
Yes, Ubudu provides an open API that allows you to integrate real-time and historical data to your MES, WMS and ERP systems. There are 3 types of data that can be integrated: positions, entry/exit in zones and alerts. Automatisation can be done by defining actions to take place automatically in your system based on the data received from the Ubudu system.
The Analytics Dashboard enables you to create any type of graphic you want to analyse the flow of your operations. For example, you can create pie charts to quickly see how much time assets spend in different zones, you can make use of the flow diagram to see in which zones the asset went, you can create heatmaps to identify in which parts of the plant most assets go etc...
