Discover how real-time centralized silo management could increase transparency in your supply chain.
Imagine how much easier things would be if you always know where your mobile silos were located… if you had a perfect overview of the levels of each silo’s contents… if you could use this data to get your business where you want to go …
Thanks to Cegeka this kind of insight is a possibility. By connecting an IIoT platform and integrated sensors to your business systems, all silos can now be monitored 24/7. From measuring the filling level or quality of the contents, to planning maintenance, it really is that easy.
Knowing exactly where your mobile silos are located and being able to find them efficiently can be a challenge. Without a clear overview there is a risk of silos getting misplaced.
Tracking & tracing silos in real-time significantly increases the visibility of your silo park, allowing you to monitor the exact location of silos and identify any incorrect deliveries.
To maximize customer experience, you can even send notifications upon arrival or during transport.
Manually monitoring silo filling levels is expensive. Hence, permanent filling level measurements offer an effective solution as they provide an overview of the supply in each silo at all times.
This type of asset management allows us to accurately predict when silos need to be replenished or replaced, thus avoiding problems with supply.
Automating this process considerably reduces error margins, and it paves the way for new business models that allow your company to offer an effectively filled silo as a service.
In some situations it can be useful to accurately measure the humidity, temperature or CO2 content in your silos. That way you can intervene in time – either automatically or remotely – in case of any deviation from parameters.
This prevents loss of product or deterioration in quality, and allows you to proactively organize the maintenance of your silos.
Choosing the right industrial sensors for your application is essential.
Sensors installed on the outside of the silo provide real-time monitoring of, among other things, the location, orientation and horizontal or vertical movement of your silos.
Sensors installed on the inside can monitor the filling level and additional parameters, such as humidity, temperature and CO2 levels.
Enjoy the benefits of intuitive and user-friendly access to data from different devices. Interactive dashboards provide a clear overview, and predicative data models can further optimize silo management.
By connecting silos you can build a digital twin of your physical infrastructure, enabling advanced simulations and data analysis. This gives you an even more in-depth insight into rate of consumption, out-of-stocks, the quality of your goods and possible courses of action.
A digital twin is also a solid foundation for developing 'what if' scenarios or predictive maintenance models.
Smart silos are enabling the introduction of new business models/revenues through the concept of 'assets as a service'. This is because IIoT and the automation that comes with it are changing the way companies are designing, building and managing their business.
For example, products can be delivered automatically when they are needed – not too early and certainly not too late. This also enables proactive planning of deliveries within existing scheduled journeys, which increases efficiency and reduces costs.
