IoT Hi-TECH

Business Challenge

Business Challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt operations in the R&D labs and customer experience centers of the Hi-Tech sector. Even as nearly 80% of the lab workforce teleworks, a minimum number of critical lab personnel are still required to ensure efficient management and monitoring of processes, equipment, and environments in the labs and customer experience centers. On the other hand, as visits to experience centers come to a standstill, enterprises must find out ways to reengage their customers virtually and deliver a complete experience to ensure business continuity and new opportunities. All of this come coupled with achieving improved visibility into end-to-end operations of the Original Design Manufacturers (ODM), a key factor that can help address unique opportunities surrounding collaboration around materials, quality, and performance of the ODMs.

Reimagined operations and experiences in labs and experience centers should be backed with secure, zero-contact premises, asset health and inventory checks, and continuously monitored processes and lab environments. Together—gaining total visibility into operations of ODMs, enhancing end customer experiences and operations in R&D labs—underline the importance of reimagining the modus operandi of manufacturing operations, existing R&D labs, and customer experience centers.

IOT Proposition

Our Proposition

Lab of the Future by IoT WoRKSTM utilizes the ReServ platform and AR/VR (Augmented/Virtual Reality) technology to enable remote operations and device management, allows training of teams to be done more effectively, and delivers engaging customer experiences.

Real-time Manufacturing Insights (RMI) solution, by IoT WoRKSTM delivers real-time operational visibility from ODMs’ shop-floor to top-floor, coupled with advanced analytics, product quality updates, and is preconfigured with ready-to-use connectors, dashboards and KPIs for role-based viewing—for OEMs and Hi Tech customers.

Live Social-Distancing Monitoring by IoT WoRKSTM solution combines radar sensors, AI models, and easily retrofittable distributed architecture, that can provide real-time locational insights on people and workforce movements, identify potential hotspots, generate alerts to enable optimization of operations, monitor crowds, and ensure disease-free premises.

Intelligent Asset Tracking & Management (IATM) solution is an end-to-end offering that monitors and automates real-time visibility and control of connected assets to introduce transparency into inventory usage and asset lifecycle management processes, including bringing in automated checking and control of critical asset usage and movement across premises.

IOT Impact

The Impact

Lab of the Future delivers an enhanced, end-to-end customer experience via remote attendance, delivers a single pane of visibility into lab operations, asset health, and inventory statuses—improving workforce productivity by 20-30%, and reducing training costs by 30-50%, enhancing first-time fix rates of complex equipment and lab operations.

RMI solution enables top-quality production processes, greater flexibility in addressing change orders, improved visibility into ODM operations, and de-risking of supply chain operations and planning.

Live Social-Distancing Monitoring, with its exceptional centimeter-level tracking accuracy, enables safe, zero-contact premises by ensuring compliance with occupancy norms, thermal screening requirements, and reimagines operations for the “new normal.”

IATM solution introduces almost 98–99% asset visibility and accountability in asset tracking and custody management, 80–85% improvement in asset inventory audit processes. The solution enables reduction of asset write-off costs by almost 25–30%.
