Today, modern manufacturers are continually tasked with optimizing operations, ensuring uptime and maintaining visibility throughout production. The push toward smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0 is introducing increased connectivity and automation throughout the daily workflow in order to produce quality products while reducing costs and minimizing downtime. Organizations are looking to accelerate improvements by connecting machines, people, data and value chains throughout their facility. The movement toward “smart” factories can deliver measurable business results and is expected to be the main driver of manufacturing competitiveness in the next five years.1 And all of this must come together while ensuring a production environment that is safe and secure for employees, visitors, property and assets.
Motorola Solutions has created the first and only end-to-end technology ecosystem that unifies voice, video, data and analytics on one single platform — providing you with the foundation of safety for your operations that you need to stay focused on the job. Assuring managers and employees that when situations arise there is technology in place to resolve issues as quickly as possible to prevent them from escalating beyond control.
Their technology ecosystem allows intelligence to advance outwards, giving you eyes and ears where you’ve never had them before. Information can move where and when it’s needed — from cameras, to radios, to smart devices and machine sensors, alarms and productivity tools, to security and operations centers both on and off-site — and provides meaningful and actionable workflows. Technologies integrate seamlessly across diverse areas and functions to provide efficiency and visibility. Common interfaces and workflows makes it easier to manage teams and train new team members.
And because manufacturers face wide-ranging regulatory requirements that impact security and operational needs depending on their size and what they are producing, our ecosystem includes scalable technologies and solutions that can be adjusted to address your facility's unique needs.
Motorola Solutions Safe Manufacturing technologies come together to keep your facility safe and operations efficient — delivering the certainty of safety you need to deliver on your promise of producing quality products to customers and profitably for your business.
Overseeing the widespread and diverse areas and machinery of your facility can be a challenge. From controlling multiple points of entry, monitoring worker safety and securing and monitoring key areas and equipment, detection plays a critical role in improving situational awareness and decreasing response times to potential issues and operational problems.
Integrated video security uses artificial intelligence to create high visibility across your diverse facility all in one view. Access control provides entry management, immediate lockdown capabilities and push notifications to devices. Radio alerts ensure all personnel — across multiple teams — are automatically informed of critical information simultaneously. Sensors and alarms help to oversee and maintain worker safety and plant production capabilities.
All of this comes together to provide you with better insights — so you always know what is happening across your facility.
You're responsible for monitoring a large facility filled with workers, secure areas, vast spaces, critical materials and equipment. Identifying unwanted individuals, tracking persons of interest, locating missing inventory and recognizing hazardous situations in this environment is a demanding task.
Appearance Search capabilities quickly and seamlessly explore video footage to identify persons or vehicles of interest across the plant floor or parking lot. Video analytics detect potentially suspicious or hazardous activity, providing real-time insights into facility-wide movements. The Focus of Attention interface quickly brings your attention to areas of video security interest, increasing efficiency and improving response time when evaluating a situation.
Ultimately, these solutions and insights are crucial to cutting through the noise, proactively locating points of interest and recognizing which events are important — so you can have eyes on the scene to evaluate and make an informed decision to take action.
Whether you are a foreman on-site needing to routinely communicate with your floor staff, plant management and other areas of the plant, or a response team dealing with a large-scale emergency such as a dangerous accident or hazardous material spill, clear and timely communication is key to keeping your teams connected and informed.
Radio communications instantly and reliably connects security, response teams, floor staff, field workers, foreman, plant management and local first responders when needed. Broadband push-to-talk with multimedia capabilities extends your reach by enabling voice and data information to be shared across devices to those in other buildings or off-site. Mass notification capabilities make it easy to notify and share information with your entire organization at a moment’s notice.
Connectivity — across devices, networks and locations — is an important part of ensuring you and your entire team are aware and informed at all times.
Whether it’s an everyday incident or an emergency situation, your response teams and facility personnel need to communicate with each other to coordinate a response in the most efficient way possible. Being ready and aware is critical to ensuring your team can quickly respond to incidents or problems before they escalate — decreasing downtime, maintaining productivity and ensuring the health and safety of workers.
Dynamic interoperability makes it easy to directly share data with response team personnel in real-time, enhancing situational awareness. Incident management streamlines the logging of incident reports and makes it easy to share multimedia with other personnel when needed and inform future decision-making for safety, security and operational procedures. Work order ticket management makes it easy to track work orders and close out tickets quickly and efficiently directly from your radio.
Because enabling rapid response and documenting past incidents can be the key to preventing incidents from becoming tragedies.
