Scenario 1: Real-Time Tracking of Products in Manufacturing and Logistics

We show you how you can optimize logistics and production processes with the help of sensors. In addition to controlling production processes and route optimization, the innovative sensor technology eases the burden on workers and optimizes buffering.

Scenario 2: Connect Machines and Business with the SAP Asset Intelligence Network

The new SAP Asset Intelligence Network (AIN) collects, tracks, and traces equipment information in a central repository. It provides a completely new form of plant management while it connects equipment in an ecosystem of operators, producers (OEM), and service partners and enables everything to cooperate across borders and worldwide.

Scenario 3: Visual Picking and Voice-Directed Technology in Warehouse Processes

We support you during the order picking stage with conventional barcode and RFID scanner connection as well as voice-directed warehousing and visual picking technology. Printed picking lists are replaced by headsets or smart glasses that display the products to be packed. Even the packaging process can be automated with NTT DATA Business Solutions solutions using RFID.

Augmented reality glasses enable process optimization and a higher level of productivity in the warehouse. Instead of working with handheld scanners, workers can work hands-free during order picking by using speech or gestures to access information.
