Stanley Black & Decker required transparency of real-time overall equipment effectiveness and line productivity to reduce production line change over time.
The goal was to to improve production to schedule, reduce actual labor costs and understanding the effects of shift changes and resource shifts from line to line.
Stanley Black & Decker’s fully connected production lines deployed Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS), powered by Cisco’s robust wireless network and AeroScout Industrial’s leading enterprise visibility solutions.
The RTLS includes small and easily deployed WiFi RFID tags that attach to virtually any material and provide real-time location and status to assembly workers, shift supervisors, and plant managers.
