UNLOCKING THE EDGE

Any industry. Any system. Any process.

Ready to move your Mine into the future?

It is no longer enough to focus merely on extraction grades. Operational managers have to adopt a systems theory approach and look at the effect of single process efficiencies on the entire mining value chain to drive productivity. Horizontal interoperability of disparate systems is crucial, as is the protection of legacy systems and devices. A seemingly insurmountable task, with a relatively simple solution – IoT.

Create a complete overview of your entire operation, digitise it, and optimise it.

Surprisingly, it’s not as complex or high-tech as you’d think, can be overlaid in a short amount of time with little to no disruption to your business and can incorporate all your existing systems, devices and equipment. Well, our solution can.

Manufacturing Change

Manufacturing, by nature, involves the interconnectivity of various systems and processes. Efficiency and productivity are the drivers for success but, in increasingly complex environments, how can organisations maintain control of, and optimise, their operations? The answer is simpler and faster to implement than you think – IoT.

As more operations adopt lean manufacturing principles, they run the risk of dropping their productivity rate if there are any delays in the delivery of components. Over and above creating interconnectivity between various locations, plants and processes, asset tracking is crucial.

Surprisingly, it’s not as complex or high-tech as you’d think and can be overlaid in a short amount of time with little to no disruption to your business. It can incorporate all your existing systems, devices and equipment and enable the deployment of real-time strategic changes. Well, our solution can.

Operation of Manufacturing Facilities & Assets

Intelligent interconnectivity of machinery, systems and processes, regardless of whether they’re existing or new, allow real-time deployment of changes to manufacturing output based on demand and resource availability.

Production Asset Management & Maintenance

From quality control, damage and breakdowns, location tracking and bottlenecks within the production chain to production flow monitoring, services and predictive maintenance.

Cost Reduction

  • More efficient use of resources and utilities, avoiding surplus material pile up and smarter production rates based on demand.
  • Real-time asset management shows the health and status of various machinery, allowing for pre-emptive maintenance.
  • Lower cost of ownership, smarter spending and workforce optimisation.

Data Management

  • Optimisation, digitisation and visibility of the factory and manufacturing environment and all of its components.
  • Simplification of complex manufacturing processes using predictive analytics and smart BI.

Field Service

Client behaviour and preference monitoring, packaging and logistical preparation.

It’s one thing to be able to manage a fleet from collection, right through until delivery. Tying that data in with fuel levels, both in the fleet and stored, production levels, supply and demand and your bottom line takes an organisation to a whole new level. Every change to productivity in your business, no matter how small, contributes to increased profitability.

We think our IoT solution is the answer to unlocking that change.

As industries are driven to do more with less, asset tracking will become more important than ever.

Monitoring maintenance, performance and location are all top of mind for anyone managing an asset intensive business, or reliant on one.

From improved inventory accuracy to compliance with industry mandates, our IoT solution can be overlaid onto your existing infrastructure to minimise disruptions. Once implemented, agility and fast reactivity to weather, market prices and even local traffic conditions begin to increase productivity.

Maintenance

Real-time tracking helps ensure that maintenance of fixed and mobile assets is scheduled, resulting in minimal downtime, and, where possible, avoiding major breakdowns and productivity stoppages as a result of component failure.

Organisational Overview

Complete visibility of all assets, delivery schedules and progress, and digital evidence bags help track and trace products from factory floor to final delivery and monitor system performance across the business.

Real-Time Visibility

Enables the deployment of fleets and service teams automatically and remotely, optimising supply chains and preventing production downtime by monitoring. Reduces loss of valuable and returnable assets as well as misuse by creating complete visibility of all assets.

Asset tracking and monitoring

Accurately track assets along the entire supply chain, particularly in the case of unanticipated breakdown or loss, provide preventative maintenance and damage monitoring, optimise process efficiency and track people during emergency drills and evacuations.

Rather than just reacting when thresholds are reached, healthcare machinery needs to shift to continuously monitor vitals, providing digital audit trails and proactive treatment.
– Nico Steyn, IoT.nxt

Generally, hospital monitoring equipment alerts healthcare practitioners when thresholds are reached. There’s simply too much information, from too many devices, printing lines onto too many reams of paper, to contemplate interoperability.

In a digitalised, interconnected environment these issues are obsolete. Our technology-agnostic IoT solution can be overlaid onto existing set ups, meaning older equipment can be protected, and there’s little disruption in vital wards. Data feeds are made into interoperable pools of information, from which real-time, actionable insights can be drawn.

Poised to account for $117 billion by 2020, the health care IoT industry is not one to ignore.

“Disruption is evident in the healthcare sector, where the pen and paper has been the primary means of recording patient information for decades. But now, healthcare technology is changing in major ways.”

Asset Tracking and Monitoring

Real-time tracking helps ensure that maintenance of fixed and mobile assets is scheduled, resulting in minimal downtime, and, where possible, avoiding major breakdowns and productivity stoppages as a result of component failure.

Facilities Management

Tracking rooms and theatres to ensure that spaces are used, and functioning optimally. Equipment performance can be analysed alongside heatmaps, noise and temperature levels, medicinal storage conditions and energy consumption.

Doctor / Patient Planning

Expedited response times, particularly during emergencies, coupled with more accurate location mapping and utility planning lead to improved patient satisfaction.

Enhanced Patient Care

A holistic view of vital information could lead to more proactive treatment and improved accuracy in the diagnostic phase of patient care. Real-time insight into patient information and personalized thresholds and data could aid in improved disease management.

Predictive Maintenance

Automatically trigger smart actions like work orders, service alerts and the technical fine-tuning of equipment in real-time.

Ready to put your farm in your pocket, and future-proof your operations?

Ever-increasing demand in a highly competitive sector pushes technology to the forefront for farmers. Knowing how a farm, and all the components that, collectively, make up its ecosystem, are functioning and developing at all times is more important than ever. We’ve seen how technology can positively impact agriculture, specifically autonomous equipment and bio-farming practices.

The stumbling block for many farmers now is bringing all their technology, systems and devices together into one interconnected system, to cut out time spend dealing with various vendors and unlock the full value of their operation.

Quality Control

Digitised value and supply chains allowing for produce to be tracked and traced from source to retail shelf, delivering quality control and the ability to immediately identify problem areas at production source.

Interconnectivity

By connecting all legacy machinery warehousing and packaging plants can be more productive and efficient.

Energy & Resource Management

Use of power, management of irrigation, pumps, dam levels, water required at production plants are all aspects of energy use that can be managed in real time and changed seamlessly for exceptional cost savings and improved efficiency.
