Indoor positioning technologies

What is an Indoor Positioning System? We all know the features of the Global Positioning System (GPS), which enable users to locate a place, thing, or people on the surface of the earth. GPS uses satellite signals to locate a thing. But GPS is unreliable in interior spaces ie) under the roof, as there is no visual contact with the satellites. There we use the Indoor Positioning System (IPS). In other words, Indoor Positioning System (IPS) is a system of network-connected devices which is used for the wireless location of objects and persons inside buildings and covered areas. Generally, IPS

Management Control Systems

IOT in Activity Based Costing Two of the key performance indicators (KPI) in the manufacturing industry are MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) and MTTR (Mean Time To Repair). MTBF is a performance metric that measures the time elapsed between when a failure occurs and the next time it happens. MTTR is the time spent to conduct repairs once a failure occurs. Both these KPIs are calculated by dividing the total time taken respectively by the number of failures. While these are good indicators of performance, they are flawed. Failures cannot be foreseen as they are not uniform and can occur
