For many distribution center (DC) operations, asset monitoring is performed according to predetermined service schedules or via reports generated after daily shifts or other time-based intervals. Unfortunately, the potential to leverage real-time performance and asset data is underutilized. As a result, the opportunities to drive efficiencies in DC operations are squandered, including the abilities to:
- Reduce unplanned downtime
- Maximize labor productivity and utilization
- Control maintenance costs
- Transition to a predictive maintenance model
Limiting downtime is essential to meeting daily throughput targets and maximizing the utilization of equipment and labor. By connecting equipment control systems and assets, Honeywell Intelligrated provides the visibility to help DC operators monitor critical processes, view real-time statuses, receive situational alerts, and analyze historical data.
