The need for indoor group location tracking
Get to know about how Indoor tracking works will help organisations understand the benefits and deploy these productivity and safety solutions on a time bound manner. Group tracking solutions can be deployed for tracking production inventory, workforce engaged in group activities, equipment that need to move along with specialised tasks etc.
Grouping of workforce to monitor workflow
It is often necessary to group workers to monitor their movement within the zones defined in an indoor location tracking system. This will help in understanding the group activities better. Such as progress of tasks managed by a group of workers, segregation of the workers based on expertise and seniority, their need to be in these virtual zones when need arises.

Mapping of junior and senior workforce to implement knowledge management. Grouping of technicians during plant maintenance shutdowns – understand the areas visited, the time spent at each location where equipments are located, capturing the exact time spent in repairing mission critical equipment.
Group inventory location for production tracking
Often, in the case of production scenario in the electronic manufacturing space, there is the need to track inventory in groups – for example, a production inventory trolly will contain n number of bins filled with raw materials, which are tagged as part of the the production kit and the need is for the shop floor manager understand the inventory of ready for production, waiting for procurement and empty trollies. With the help of our group tracking function in the digital twin solution, it is now easy to track inventories to help improve production process.
