SIMATIC RTLS - the locating platform for your digital enterprise
Mobilize production. Maximize flexibility.
Many innovative companies are thinking about how to make their traditional workflows in production and logistics more dynamic. This allows to respond more quickly to market changes, optimize capacity utilization or manufacture smaller batches. The key are flexible, self-organizing production and logistics concepts based on our SIMATIC RTLS locating platform. What does that exactly mean? You can use SIMATIC RTLS to navigate material flows, control mobile robots, monitor component use, and fully document the final product assembly. Welcome to the Digital Enterprise!
Seamless locating of all relevant objects anywhere on the company premises
Precise, end-to-end visibility of moving objects and people in production and logistic processes
Are you thinking about to better manage and optimize your critical assets, streamline your operations and create more efficient workflows? SIMATIC RTLS offers a full portfolio of options for capturing location data to gratify accuracy, precision and range requirements. It can also feed data into higher-level MES and ERP systems for issuing alerts, alarms, or commands. Plant and logistics operators can use the data to increase efficiency, visibility, and safety. To gain a complete enterprise wide view across multiple plants, even those located on different continents, companies can use cloud platforms like Siemens MindSphere, the open IoT operating system, to link each one and combine its RTLS data with other plants’ data streams. At the same time, SIMATIC RTLS solutions can complete the picture of digital twins for production processes by providing dynamic location data in real-time for all physical objects and personnel, whether at rest or in motion.
Easy deployment and expansion - The SIMATIC RTLS portfolio features four interworking components
Siemens SIMATIC RTLS solutions are extremely easy to deploy and configure, especially because they do not require RF engineering. A qualified electrician’s skills are all that are necessary. In addition, these RTLS solutions are highly scalable, so plant and logistics operations can add RTLS capacity in stages as site needs grow — right up to a company-wide infrastructure — with no additional configuration costs.
