Sponsored by Analog Devices, Inc. and Molex, the three-part video series produced by Supplyframe highlights the stops a product makes throughout its journey from design to production, including warehouses, facilities manufacturing, shipping, etc. With so many eyes on the global supply chain this year, it’s more important than ever that accessible, automated monitoring and tracking is accessible to everyone.
“Sensors are essential for tracking products throughout the supply chain and are becoming increasingly smarter and better connected,” said Robbie paul, Director of IoT Business Solutions at Digi-Key. “Digi-Key is committed to enabling the development of next-generation monitoring solutions that transform the supply chain to help the world run faster and more efficiently. “
The first of three videos in the series, “Components at the Source”, is now available on the Digi-Key website. The episode will focus on how inventory is tracked in a warehouse, as well as emerging technologies such as indoor positioning, robots / cobots and more.
The second video, titled “The Product Journey”, will be released in early November. This episode will follow a product along its journey, from origin to destination, and explore the technologies used to optimize routes, manage vehicle fleets and track assets.
The third video, “Next Generation Production”, will showcase the wide variety of monitoring solutions available to ensure the safety, security and reliability of workers’ products, such as temperature monitoring, condition-based monitoring, use of blockchain in supply chain management and Suite. The episode will be available in December.
“If we are to sustainably scale a resilient and secure supply chain that meets the expected growth of e-commerce, it must be highly automated,” said Donnacha O’Riordan, Director, Connected Movement and Robotics for Analog Devices. “Cobots and autonomous mobile robots will be at the heart of this automation. At ADI, our DNA lies in the precision technologies that connect the physical and digital worlds. These are the technologies that allow humans and machines to work together.
“Molex is delighted to be working again with Digi-Key on developing rich content that addresses issues that are very real and relevant to our customers,” said Fred bell, vice president of global distribution for Molex. “As a leading provider of integrated electronics solutions and manufacturer for all major industries, we are able to draw on a long history of resolving supply chain issues to help provide guidance in this particularly difficult time. . ”
