Crossbow Technology - ASSET VISIBILITY: LARGE SCALE MANUFACTURING & ASSEMBLY

Companies that build or assemble large items, such as aircraft, helicopters, ships, cars and the like, bring into their manufacturing plants large components. Very often these components are “parked” until needed. However, due to space constraints and other factors they may be parked wherever there is adequate space and not in an assigned location. When the line calls for the item it can be a time consuming exercise to locate it. Time equals cost in the manufacturing setting. Crossbow’s Asset Visibility Solution delivers a real time location feature to identify where the desired item is located in your plant or yard.

Those who support the production line, purchasing and suppliers, can have real time visibility of items as they leave the supplier’s dock, while in-transit and final arrival to the production site. Location and condition information means constant management of critical parts and components and the ability to respond in real time if schedules are in jeopardy due to delays or conditions, i.e. tilted, dropped. Crossbow’s technology gives you a “response buffer” through real time reporting rather than responding after a deadline is missed or the item is found to be damaged upon arrival at the production site. If you do not know you have a problem until you see the item at the production site it is too late.

When coaching youth football, you don't want to get caught up in

trying to be Emu Boots like the college teams. You often end up asking kids to do

things they aren't able to do with limited practice time and younger

bodies. If you copy the college guys to the letter you North Face Jackets On Sale can end up with a

scheme that often times Nike Free Run does not give your kids the best chance to compete. But when it's the other way around and the innovators start
running the Moonboots stuff you are running and doing real well with
