Challenges in creating Factories of the Future 16 January 2017 Following the news that Bosch is launching a research consortium to develop a concept to make manufacturing more efficient and profitable, Adrian Jennings VP of RTLS technology at Ubisense, looks at some the challenges that lie ahead for manufacturers in creating Factories of the Future. He asks: “if you think it’s hard to keep track of things now, how about when the whole factory changes layout at will?” “The research work being conducted by Bosch is based on the idea of a Factory of the Future, which will see the traditional assembly line sliced into smaller, modular and self-contained workstations in order to create efficiencies and increase profitability. Yet this model has its own set of challenges. It’s hard enough keeping track of things with fixed assembly lines, but when the line itself can morph according to demand, then things get exponentially worse. So position constraints and position controls (making sure the right things happen in the right workstation) need to be reactive to the changes. “The only way that this can feasibly be done is to make the controls all software-based so that they can be reconfigured with a click of the mouse. Better yet, the production modules are all smart enough to create their own controls around their specific micro-environment and when plugged all together it just blends into an end-to-end process. Either way, it’s important to get your workstation controls virtualized, and that’s where Ubisense comes in with its location-aware IoT solutions. “Visualization is already delivering huge efficiencies for many manufacturers today. This is particularly true of the automotive sector where Ubisense’s software platform is helping to deal with increasing levels of complexity in the assembly process, which can see a range of vehicles and different specifications manufactured concurrently on the same assembly line. Ubisense’s SmartSpace enables manufacturers to manage real-time location and identification data from multiple sources to support industrial-scale mission-critical visibility and control. Detecting and responding to real-world interactions between people, things and the environment enables new kinds of visibility and control applications. And it is this which will form an important role in the development of Factories of the Future. “There is much discussion around Factories of the Future, IoT and Industry 4.0 but not many manufacturers yet know exactly how they are going to get there. There is a lot of research needed, helped by bodies such as Bosch’s new consortium, and many practical details still to be confirmed. In the automotive world some pioneering manufacturers are already moving away from the fixed assembly line and by creating location-aware IoT environments have improved efficiencies across the business. While Ubisense’s technology alone will not deliver a Factory of the Future, installing the right software systems now will put manufacturers in a much stronger position to do so”.
Does anyone have level 2 and able to take a look at state of play?

Thanks bamboo, will do. I am not a trader and usually try to identify turn around situations where there is a sustainable business badly managed & catalysts are coming into play. Ubi fitted that mould for me. My own target price was/is high 70's by end 2017 and the recent stock option grants kind of line-up with that scenario. Ubi are on the cusp of being out of net debt and p/s of what looks about 1 with a growth market. If this new CEO is capable, with the exec chairman helping guide to start, I could see recovery >60p much sooner. A little buying interest and this could run up nicely, hence question about flag pole potential. Kestrel own about 29% that looks like about a 47p average. They do make mistakes but have a very good batting average. Some results soon. Also interesting the business is becoming more diverse in software, hardware, target segments and moving out of excess automotive dependence. Interestingly, the more pressure on automotive margins the greater need for manufacturing efficiency and the potential for Ubi.
Hi p1nkfish, I have had a look at the chart. Unfortunately every time I try to save a screenshot the chart program freezes, so will have to post it later. [edit, chart now posted] I can see what you are hoping for, and this would be known as a price mirror or reflected zones of support and resistance. This would target around 92. There is however a prior gap down which could limit the rise, if any, to approx 76. I have looked for triangulations to see if we can get an indication of possible turn date but there are none. This could be due to the fact it is thinly traded on a wide spread, so there is little detail in many of the daily candles. In terms of timing, measuring the consolidation zones either side of the central dip or bowl is all we've got, and gives us a possible b/o date around 10-11 Jan '17. A b/o eod close below approx 35 would be a sell signal for me. This becomes a buy with an eod close above 44.5, and I'd be interested if you would let me know if and when this occurs, so we can look again at the chart.
gonna be profit warning here imho car sales spluttering

Using location-aware IoT solutions to reduce the pain of safety recalls 22 November 2016 Recalls are a painful experience for manufacturers and becoming increasingly so, not least for the automotive sector. In 2015, the U.S. Department of Transportation pushed for an overhaul of the automaker's safety and recall practices in a bid to improve road safety. This led to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) imposing the first ever maximum financial penalty on a number of automotive manufacturers. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles was fined a total of $140 million in two separate penalties and GM and Honda have both since received a $70 million fine. While these sums might make you wince, they represent only a fraction of the true cost of a safety recall. On top of the fines, manufacturers have the cost of recalling the vehicles products, replacing or repairing any issues, providing additional customer support to deal with related customer queries and installing systems to ensure that similar mistakes are not repeated. And there’s a longer-term negative impact on brand and sales which is not so easy to quantify. Safety recalls are by no means an issue exclusive to the automotive industry. You don’t have to search far to find stories about recalls by manufacturers making food and beverage products, mobile phones, white goods and many more. While the issues, fines and responses may change each time, the incidents are nearly always costly and hugely damaging to the company responsible. Issues for car manufacturers When it comes to making cars, there are different types of faults that can occur. Any nut, bolt or screw that people fix falls into one of three categories. Those with the lowest importance relate to cosmetic appearance of a car such as a trim (which is far more important to some brands than others). Then there are the mid-level fasteners, used on items such as instrument panels, which are structural but not safety critical (although it is not advisable to drive without them!). Finally there are critical fasteners, which relate directly to safety and affect items including seatbelt mounts, airbags, brake pedals and electrical connections. When it comes to safety critical fasteners, manufacturers are duty bound to keep a safety record providing proof that every vehicle has been manufactured correctly and passed the required quality checks. In a plant, more than 1,000 cars can be built in a day – so if there is a mix up in records or a potential issue is not spotted straight away this can lead to major recalls involving many vehicles. With safety recalls the costs grow incrementally, so the later that the fault is found, the bigger the repercussions. In the worst case scenario, the affected cars will reach dealerships and sold on to customers, which can lead to accidents and even death. Very recently one of the major automotive manufacturers embarked on a costly safety recall following a potential issue with fuel tank attachment bolts that had not been tightened properly. As a result, there was a possibility that - after an extended period of time - the fuel tank straps could fracture, causing the fuel tank to separate from the vehicle and leading to a fuel leak which, in the presence of an ignition source, can start a fire. It was imperative to alert the owners of the affected cars and relevant dealerships to ensure that this didn’t happen - and as quickly as possible. Location, location, location Many of the problems in manufacturing aren’t seen as location based, but the truth is that an assembly line is about moving things and attaching them to other moving items. If anything is in the wrong place, at the wrong time, problems will arise. On a busy automotive assembly line, when every car often has a different specification, the opportunity for location errors to occur are vast. The right person needs to be in the right place working on the right bolt using the right tool at the right setting on the right car – if any one of these factors is wrong there will be an issue (as can be seen in the recall example above). By tracking the exact location of tools, people and assets, Ubisense’s technology can ensure that each of these factors is performing correctly. If an issue does occur, Ubisense’s system will send alerts so that problems can be resolved before the car leaves the assembly line. The system can also be set up to disable tools taken to the wrong car or used on the wrong process. This is beyond error detection and moves to error prevention – and is helping Ubisense to prevent major auto recalls for 8 of the world’s top 10 automotive manufacturers[1]. Creating location-aware environments Mistakes caused by human error are pretty much guaranteed in a busy manufacturing environment - and even the smartest of factories requires some element of human interaction. What’s important is to support these manual processes with error proofing – or preferably error prevention – systems, so that a simple mistake overlooked does not become a major problem for manufacturers and their customers at a later date. Ubisense’s advanced tracking technology enables manufacturers to create location-aware environments which make sense of thousands of movements and interactions in real-time. By providing visibility across an entire operation, Ubisense’s technology not only alerts manufacturers to issues as they occur - helping to avoid situations which may lead to safety recalls - but delivers a whole host of other benefits in terms of accurate reporting and compliance. Precisely tracking people, tools and other assets within in any specified environment, Ubisense’s smart solutions help manufacturers to maintain continuous flow, optimize efficiency and reduce errors in manual assembly processes through real-time spatial modelling and analysis.

Well insider supported sub 30p. Still of the opinion there is good upside here and the GBP can help even though they have reasonable headcount abroad.
I think any volume that arrives is more likely to be on the upside than the downside in the next 6 months after so long hanging around sub 40p. Those looking to exit with volume should mostly be gone by now. New arrivals awaited on trading news, results and forward look.
Decent length of time since last news. Can't be long before more arrives. They had irons in the fire with Magna, Hyundai and I think GM was mentioned. Something has to land if you plant enough interests.

Ubisense and Outboard deliver vocal localisation solutions for Tokyo’s new National Theatre and Finland’s National Opera: Technology from Ubisense Group plc (AIM:UBI), a global leader in enterprise location intelligence, is now precisely tracking performers at Tokyo National Theatre and the Finnish National Opera (FNO), thanks to recent installations by long-standing partner Outboard. Outboard’s TiMax Tracker system combines Ubisense’s SmartSpace software with its own spatial zone mapping application, managing precise ultra-wideband location-tracking hardware to control automated vocal localisation in the live performance and presentation sectors. Ubisense’s battery-powered miniature tags (TT tags) are worn by performers and the signals they emit are picked up by Ubisense readers (TT sensors) mounted around the performance area. The SmartSpace platform analyses the xyz data from the readers in real-time, following the performers as they move around the stage within 15cm accuracy. The TiMax Tracker spatialisation app then sends audio localisation control instructions to the TiMax2 SoundHub audio matrix. With five Ubisense readers installed at the FNO, the major audio renovation was completed in time for the sell-out show of Phantom of the Opera. The production’s large number of soloists, chorus and dancers meant TiMax spatialisation automation was a significant factor in achieving a level of authenticity and impact to match the high production standards of the FNO. Tokyo’s New National Theatre (NNTT) installed a 32-channel TiMax2 SoundHub-S32 and TiMax Tracker system with six Ubisense readers and 32 of its tags. This delivered adaptable provision of automated vocal localisation and audio show control in both the main ‘PlayhouseR17; auditorium and also the smaller ‘Pit’ theatre. Outboard has been incorporating Ubisense’s technology into its solution portfolio for more than eight years, during which time more than a hundred permanent or temporary installations have taken place across the globe. Dave Haydon at Outboard said: “It’s been great working with FNO and the New National Theatre in Tokyo, two establishments that demand high-quality solutions to deliver their audiences the very best in sound quality. We’ve been using Ubisense’s technology for a number of years now and it gives our systems unparalleled precision when tracking performers around the stage.” CTO at Ubisense, Andy Ward, said: “Dave and Robin at Outboard have created an amazing range of products for use in entertainment and event productions around the world and we’re delighted that they’re using Ubisense products to such great effect. We may be best known in the manufacturing world, where our systems are often used to track assets, but our technology is being used more than ever before to track a range of people in real-time, from doctors and their patients to sports stars and performers.”

myWorld transforms operations at TELUS with web and mobile solution 9/14/16 TELUS is Canada’s fastest-growing national telecommunications company, with $12.6 billion of annual revenue and 12.5 million subscriber connections, including 8.4 million wireless subscribers, 1.4 million residential network access lines, 1.6 million internet subscribers and 1.0 million TELUS TV customers. TELUS provides a wide range of communications products and services including wireless, data, Internet Protocol (IP), voice, television, entertainment and video, and is Canada's largest healthcare IT provider. In early 2015 TELUS was about to complete the rollout of a new GIS for outside plant (OSP) planning, design and asset management. The team needed a web and mobile GIS platform to support critical operational processes with groups such as cable plant locates, field techs and construction. The key requirements for the new web and mobile solution were to: Integrate with the GIS platform Handle massive national network asset, address and lot parcel data sets Scale up to thousands of users Work both online and offline Provide significant off-the-shelf features and functions Support for all mobile device platforms Built on a flexible architecture for configuration, development and integration Support for standards based file formats TELUS ultimately needed to select and deploy a new integrated web and mobile GIS solution quickly that provided teams with up-to-date, accurate information and enabled the operations teams to meet business, deployment and regulatory requirements. In addition, its strategic fiber network deployment initiative required web and mobile GIS tools to meet critical progress timelines and milestone commitments. The TELUS team had evaluated other web/mobile GIS solutions but they did not meet the essential requirements. Several of the key TELUS stakeholders were aware of Ubisense myWorld and impressed with the innovative approach, solution capabilities and leading-edge architecture, so the two teams began discussing the business and technical requirements along with the project timeline. Following just four weeks of focused discussions, TELUS and Ubisense embarked on a four-week live system trial to prove out the key requirements in a realistic environment. The trial was a complete success and led to the selection of myWorld as the strategic web and mobile GIS platform for TELUS nationally. The phase one production rollout was completed in just five weeks. Ubisense’s myWorld platform enables TELUS staff to see the network asset details integrated with Google Maps on their PCs, laptops, smart phones and tablets, placing critical and time relevant information in the hands of field teams such as cable locators, installation and repair plus construction. The combined Ubisense and TELUS team has continued to release a host of myWorld features with a focus on providing all the information and functions that users need to be productive. These include complex network tracing, schematic diagrams, two-factor authentication for contractors, offline regional datasets, annotation management, additional data layers, fiber drop editing and planning tools. myWorld has significantly reduced the average time it takes to locate cables from 5 – 7 minutes to just seconds. Today approximately 1,400 users access the information provided through myWorld and the number is growing. There has been a lot of positive feedback, with users praising the solution’s performance, usability and integration with Google. Nelson Gillette, Director IS at TELUS said: “We’ve been very impressed with Ubisense, the team has worked very quickly and been able to cater for our specific business and technical requirements. myWorld is intuitive to use and provides a detailed view of our above and below ground network, layered on top of optional base maps including Google Maps, Googler Satellite and Google Street View. The open functionality of the myWorld application makes it possible to overlay many other types of data including forest fire perimeter details and power outage details. For example, in May 2016, it was used to assist with managing our operations in and around Fort McMurray Alberta. As a result, response teams were aware of the current location of the fire in relation to our network infrastructure. We have plans to overlay additional customer and business insight details to better manage outage events, ultimately providing an improved customer experience.” myWorld has been so successful and well received that TELUS and Ubisense are now working to roll out additional business-focused applications including: Integration with CRM, Trouble Ticketing, Service Delivery and Network Management Fibre service area analysis and strategic planning “Enterprise Crowd Sourcing” apps, enabling a growing number of TELUS employees to become participants in data correction, quality and ultimately integrity Field redlines and edits with round trip updates A focused portal for residential and commercial serviceability Scott Casey, VP of Geospatial Solutions for Ubisense, said: “I’m really impressed with the TELUS leadership and solution delivery team. This has not been a traditional client and vendor engagement, it’s a true partnership based on aligned goals and shared responsibilities. The TELUS say/do ratio is unmatched and we look forward to expanding the myWorld platform and delivering continuous improvements in operational effectiveness, customer responsiveness and proactive network management.”
