Manufacturing: Use Cases

CloudD and Manufacturing

Sensors and CloudD's connectivity platform installed throughout your factory can greatly improve the efficiency of the manufacturing process, improve workplace safety, improve customer support, and significantly reduce maintenance costs and downtime.

CloudD makes it possible to efficiently monitor and control your entire production process from anywhere. Monitor the state of your machinery with sensors to prevent breakdown, remotely monitor and control your machinery through a real-time dashboard (tablet, web-based, etc), reduce workplace injury and accidents with environmental sensors.

1. Real-Time Production Monitoring

Through the use of internet enabled sensors, manufacturers can know in real-time the state of production at any location within a factory, can track the performance and "health" of machinery, monitor the environmental conditions within the factory, and monitor and control inventory levels without having to physically check them. Production can be monitored and controlled on a mobile-app dashboard or web page from anywhere in the world.

Benefits

Remote Monitoring and Control:

Monitor and control machinery from anywhere, monitor production output remotely

Reduce Production Delays:

Real-time monitoring can reduce downtime and lead to fewer production bottlenecks.

Improved Efficiency:

Faster time to market, greater asset use, greater employee efficiency, reduced costs

2. Worker Safety

Remotely monitor the health of your employees, detect dangerous changes in the work environment (carbon monoxide leaks, humidity and temperature changes), equip vehicles with anti-collision sensors, build audio and video communication systems to easily call for help, create an emergency alert systems.

Benefits

Fewer Injuries:

Reduce the rate of injury with health monitoring tools (wearables), environmental sensors, vehicle safety sensors, etc.

Faster Response Time:

Workers equipped with wearable safety devices can easily signal for help from anywhere.

Construction: Use Cases

CloudD and Construction

Construction sites can be chaotic scenes, with workers often changing location, new materials constantly arriving on site, and construction deadlines to meet. Keeping track of worker hours, construction material deliveries, construction progress, and workers' locations can be a very complicated task. With the internet of things and CloudD however, many of these tasks can be automated or easily monitored and coordinated through the use of sensors and mobile devices (phones or tablets).

If you are a developer or construction firm looking to implement a solution in this space, contact us! With CloudD you can build (or we can build for you) tools and solutions like auto-checkin (workers automatically clocked in when they step onto a jobsite), GPS location tracking (for tracking workers, vehicles, etc.), real-time inventory and delivery monitoring, environmental and safety monitoring, and more.

1. Personnel Logistics

Track your employee hours and overtime with an auto-checkin app, remotely assign workers to tasks, know where your employees are at all times (and easily communicate with them). Know immediately when tasks have been completed. Improve worker safety with wearable technologies.

Benefits

Reduced Complexity:

Save time with apps that allow workers to auto-checkin when they arrive no site (check-in occurs automatically through an app when a worker steps on site), track the progress and completion of tasks remotely on a mobile dashboard, improve worker safety with sensor alert systems and wearable tech.

Cost Savings:

With sensors and the internet of things, worksites can save significant time and energy through automating certain tasks, eliminating the need to physically check up on workers and projects, and eliminating paper work.

2. Real-Time Materials Tracking

Track in real-time the location of materials on a work site, know exactly when materials and contractors are going to arrive, track your inventory levels on a mobile dashboard.

Benefits

Faster Production Schedules:

Real-time tracking of materials and workers allows for better coordination on site and faster construction progress.

Asset Tracking:

Prevent asset theft with sensors that track the location of your materials.

Metals & Mining: Use Cases

CloudD and Metals & Mining

Benefit from the real-time monitoring and control capabilities of CloudD and the internet of things. With mining worksites and assets often located in remote locations and profitability of companies in this sector strongly influenced by down-time and maintenance costs, being able to better predict and control these costs is of paramount importance.

CloudD and the internet of things can solve a number of problems for the metals and mining sector: by enabling real-time remote monitoring and control of assets, operators can save on fuel costs (fewer physical visits), labor costs (fewer personnel needed to monitor and control assets), and maintenance costs (machinery performance can tracked in real-time, allowing operators to preemptively solve problems before they become huge headaches). The IOT can also greatly improve workplace safety through the use of environmental sensors, alert systems, and emergency wearable technologies.

1. Equipment/Machinery Monitoring

Sensors and an IOT platform make it possible to track in real-time the locations of employees and vehicles, monitor their status, and efficiently direct assets to required locations all from a mobile-app or web interface.

Monitor and control machinery remotely.

Benefits

Efficiency:

Improved operational efficiencies.

Flexible Management:

Knowing the status of vehicles and employees in real-time allows for more flexible management.

Reduced Costs:

Reduces maintenance costs, fuel costs, operational costs.

2. Worker Safety

Remotely monitor the health of your employees, detect dangerous changes in the work environment (carbon monoxide leaks, humidity and temperature changes), equip vehicles with anti-collision sensors, video communication systems, and emergency alert systems.

Benefits

Fewer Injuries:

Reduce the rate of injury with health monitoring tools (wearables), environmental sensors, vehicle safety sensors, etc.

Faster Response Time:

Workers equipped with wearable safety devices can easily signal for help from anywhere.
