Omni-ID Unveils View 10; e-Paper Replacement for Build Books Transforms Materials Flow Management

Omni-ID, the world’s leading provider of RFID and visual-tagging solutions for industrial applications, has unveiled the View 10, expanding its award-winning suite of ProVIEW intelligent supply chain enablement solutions.

The View 10 features a paper-size (10 inch), low profile and lightweight display specifically designed as a “build book” replacement for large capital goods manufacturing. Fitting seamlessly in the pocket, slot or hanger of existing bins or other on-floor transport systems, it combines advanced RFID, infrared and WiFi communications technologies to drive real-time intelligence to operators at the point of assembly while also returning advanced analytics to plant management. Each e-tag can be automatically or manually triggered to display custom instructions at different locations on the factory floor, and remotely updated instantaneously as priorities and build schedules fluctuate.

“The View 10 not only replaces paper work instructions, but also allows constantly updated materials tracking throughout the entire manufacturing process – solving one of the most significant information gaps in manufacturing material flows today,” said George Daddis, chief executive officer of Omni-ID. “This type of advanced process visibility takes on even greater importance as manufacturers seek more data points to help uncover inefficiencies on the line. We’re feeding analytics packages that are making a significant difference in throughput at a time when corporations are looking for more ways to be globally competitive. We’ve brought the Internet of Things to the plant floor.”

The ProVIEW system has been installed in multiple Fortune 100 manufacturing facilities, including four of the world’s top automotive companies. Detroit, a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America and the leading manufacturer of on-highway heavy-duty diesel engines and axles for the commercial truck market, recently presented its use of the system at the RFID Journal Live conference.

In addition, the ProVIEW system has been deployed at Whirlpool’s advanced, high-volume washing machine plant in Ohio.

Frost & Sullivan had the privilege of being the first to view the demonstration for the analysis of the product View 10 from Omni-ID at RFID Journal Live 2014, Orlando, FL. Based on the demonstration and the understanding of Omni-ID’s product suite and the market, “The ‘Internet of Things’ has quickly moved beyond consumer use cases, but had yet to penetrate the factory floor down to the individual bin and part level because of technological and integration hurdles,” said Ram Ravi, Senior Research Analyst, Auto-ID and Data Capture, Frost and Sullivan. “With its ProVIEW system, Omni-ID has solved that issue, and is changing the manufacturing landscape. With high-impact installations across multiple vertical markets showing its potential, the company has raised the bar for the future of intelligent supply chain data collection and on-floor application.”

With the aim of dramatically modernizing the forty year-old, paper-intensive Kanban process, the ProVIEW System creates or enhances intelligent supply chains by tracking and tracing parts required for batch builds; enabling more flexible and responsive assembly by automatically labeling quality errors and reworking instructions in real time; and supplying data for advanced analytics on operator and process efficiency. In addition, the e-paper solution replaces the paper, ink and toner from legacy processes for substantial environmental and cost advantages.

Omni-ID and its ProVIEW system have been recognized for leadership and customer value in manufacturing by Frost and Sullivan, as well as having won or been nominated for the Best in Show at the RFID Journal LIVE! Conference for three consecutive years (2012, 2013 and 2014).

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
