By Alyssa Dalton
Jul. 6, 2015 – Ubisense Group says it has launched Smart Factory Assembly to help vehicle manufacturers address critical operational challenges along the assembly line and reduce the increasing cost of manufacturing complexity. The modern assembly plant must be flexible and agile in order to manage product variability without introducing waste or compromising quality, it notes. According to the company, the two new products — Virtual Station and Smart Device — enable vehicle manufacturers to break free from fixed workstations and embrace the virtualization required to manage complexity on high-mix, high-volume assembly lines. With this level of flexibility, manufacturers can achieve measurable cost reduction, guaranteed productivity gains, quality improvements and the ability to effectively manage mass product customization, it adds.
