ProVIEW Process VIEW for ManufacturingAn Industrial IoT SolutionFinally, there is a solution to replace the 40-year oldprocess of manually placing paper labels on the literallymillions of containers, carts, and sub-assemblies flowing throughfactories every day with simple, cost-effective wireless displays:Omni-ID’s complete material flow management solution — ProVIEW.
ProVIEW is the first trulypaperless system basedon the industrialInternet of Things (IoT)What makes ProVIEW different than other Material Flow Management solutions?It’s simple — traditional paper labeling provides simple visual instruction, but with minimaltracking and automation. RFID provides the tracking but fails to provide the visual instructionor two-way communication/verification necessary for workers. Only ProVIEW combines theseelements to form a powerful new paradigm — instruct track dynamic control —enabling smart manufacturing for an IoT world.VISUALPaper/BarcodeTRACK ABLEWIRELESSDYNAMICREAL-TIME CONTROL RFID ProVIEW ProVIEW combines the immediate reliability of paper labels with the automated tracking and control inherent in Internet of Thingstechnologies — all with a 12–18 month customer ROI (on paper and printer savings alone)!View Tag E-paper RFIDBuild SmartContainersLocate/TrackMaterial FlowsControl inReal-Time withProVIEW SoftwarePick 4xREPORTINGVISUAL DYNAMICWIRELESSINTELLIGENTContainers display latest instructionsHands-free and wireless for operatorsSoftware runs as standalone or integrates with MES/ERP (hosted or premise-based)
What is ProVIEW?You know what components have been delivered to you for processingand what finished products you’re shipping out. Now you can havecomplete visibility and control over what you’re building — in real time.ProVIEW replaces static paper labels with a dynamic e-paper basedsolution. ProVIEW allows you to view your Work In Process (WIP), anddynamically change your flow at a moment’s notice to accommodateany issues. It is the ONLY system on the market that provides you withthe ability to re-send operator instructions automatically, at any pointduring the process. No reprinting, no manual activity and no expendedhuman resources — simply the push of a button.SYSTEMSERVICES 20% of containers are reported lost on an annualbasis, costing companies millions of dollarsMore than 80% of errors are typically eliminatedwhen visual instructions are present.How ProVIEW WorksOmni-ID’s fully integrated ProVIEW system includes all of the hardware and software you need to ensure complete end-to-end processvisibility, seamlessly fitting into your existing process. The differentiating products are Omni-ID’s visual display tags. These display tags directlyreplace paper labels with wirelessly connected e-paper displays in a variety of sizes. As with paper labels, operators can see right on thecontainer or assembly all handling instructions. Unlike paper labels, these visual tags, and the assets on which they are placed, can be trackedas they flow through the factory in real-time. The PROVIEW DIFFERENCE: the displayed instruction can be changed at any time from anywhereas conditions merit!

The ProVIEW SystemO N MENNDLNLYFRIEProVIEW is designed to manage complex material flow applications, while simply integrating with your existingprocesses and MES systems. The ProVIEW system collects the location and status information by individual container,providing the factory floor visibility necessary to automate or re-direct workflows in real-time.V IRLTAENY SOLUTIOProVIEW SoftwareView TagsFlexible enough to work as a standalone application or integratedinto your MES system, this platform allows you to manage all ofthe containers in your network, dynamically change workflowsor work instruction and drive analytics for improvements.

Machine uptime, defective materials, operator skill/training, or resource scheduling aren’t the biggest issues. It’s simply:“getting the right parts to the right place, at the right time". ProVIEW was designed with this in mind. Does production regularly come to a near-standstill as issuesinevitably pile up? Is managing the count, sequence or status of your WIPinventory a challenge because it’s manual? Do you often reassign/reschedule routes for work in process? Do you have teams of “runners" that are sent out to the floor tofind specific containers for a job or inspection? Do you manually track down containers to apply newinstructions?AThe results are often chaos by late afternoon on the factory floor. ProVIEW is the solution to those issues and more.W

Smart containers that can be tracked and redirected to respondautomatically to this complexity, telling operators what to do next, are theanswer. ProVIEW provides an exponential leap forward in gaining full processcontrol in our new connected world, with self-directed “smart containers”.You’ll never lose another container or be short of crucial material again.PROTOOLSPickLocate Select RouteWORK INSTRUCTIONSPICKGetting the rightPROTOOLSparts to the right WIPplace at the right time in any factorystarts with ensuring an accurate picking or kitting of those parts from thewarehouse or other “shopping” location.
