May 21, 2014 - Omni-ID releases View 10, 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. With the aim of dramatically modernizing the forty year-old, paper-intensive Kanban process, the ProVIEW View 10 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.
