The "internet of things" enables the merge of physical and informational business processes. Therefore it is the cornerstone for a new type of process automation. Previously intransparent physical processes can now be mapped, controlled and steered.
Our customers aim to increase the efficiency of their business processes. Indicators for inefficiencies are long delivery times, out-of-stock problems, high inventory costs or product losses and recalls. These problems arise due to a lack of information on the location, current condition (e.g. temperature), and usage of products and transport materials within the supply chain. Connecting these physical objects to the internal information systems (e.g. ERP, PPS, MES) lead to a sustainable increase in business process productivity.
Emerging ubiquitous computing (UC) and RFID technologies provide the solution: A chip that is able to communicate wirelessly (transponder) is attached to every physical object – the object becomes a "Smart Thing".
Smart Things are the cornerstone for a new type of process automation. Previously intransparent physical processes can now be mapped, controlled and steered. In the future, objects will steer business processes themselves – the event-driven organization emerges, also offen called the "real-time enterprise".
Based on robust UC technologies, Intellion develops implements and operates tailor-made “Smart Thing Solutions” for your company.
