Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) – Localization and Identification Intelligence in F&B

Discover how Siemens is using a plant Real Time Tracking Solution (RTLS) in combination with blockchain and the IoT operating system MindSphere to enable complete traceability in the food and beverage industry.

Estimated Watching Time: 42 minutes


Real-Time Locating System  (RTLS) – Localization and Identification Intelligence in F&B

To ensure better food safety, more flexibility and reliability in production, and greater transparency in supply chains. In the event of recalls, they reduce effort and costs. Trusted Traceability offers the perfect way to capture data across the entire supply chain.

In this webinar we will focus on how to increase the transparency in your plant using a Real-Time Locating System / Location intelligence as new key components in the digital infrastructure of factories and warehouses of the future to navigate material flows, control mobile robots and AGVs or monitor pallets and containers use.

You will learn more about the following:

  • Extending the data genealogy to create an immutable system of record beyond the plant to encompass the entire supply chain, leveraging IoT, the cloud, and blockchain
  • Tracks the movement and storage of materials, in-process items, and finished products, as well as the transfers between and within work centers
  • Create the genealogy within the plant – the context of the data – to create a system of record for production
  • Optimize production and logistics processes

The webinar is aimed at:

Experts and responsible persons in manufacturing, warehouses, and logistics.
