Continuous Monitoring of Your Entire Aircraft Manufacturing Ecosystem Drives Predictable Production

Structural materials such as the carbon fiber cloth used in aircraft manufacturing can make or break the manufacturing process. Hidden problems with aircraft components, and the machines that make them can cause preventable delays, waste, and safety issues for operators.

You can boost production and reduce costs with our end-to-end solution that tracks asset location and movement while automatically tracking raw material properties and machine health. Our artificial intelligence (AI)-backed health and usage monitoring system (HUMS) reduces material waste and capital expenditures associated with unplanned downtime and premature asset replacement.

See how Thinaer delivers Automated Inventory Management.

Automated Delivery Management

Track Asset Location and Movement in Real-Time

  • Instantly locate machinery, supplies, and inventory throughout your facility and across your supply chain
  • Relieve labor pressures in a difficult hiring market
  • Eliminate or minimize warehouse inventory shutdowns
  • Reduce downtime thanks to more predictable inventory availability

How it’s Done

Tagging all manufacturing assets with tiny industrial IoT sensors enables continuous tracking of asset location and movement — across multiple facilities. You can find assets instantly using the Thinaer analytics dashboard on any device or by seamlessly integrating in-house enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. The result is less pressure on the workforce with greater end-to-end security.

Real-Time Locationing
Process Optimization

How it’s Different

Government aerospace initiatives mandate classified and secure processes. Restricted area breaches cause a chain reaction of events that halt manufacturing. To secure restricted areas, you can use our Bluetooth low energy (BLE) passive stickers without violating restrictions on battery-powered or transmission devices. You can also link Thinaer continuous monitoring sensors across multiple locations without additional cost or disruption.

Technology only works if people use it. To ensure that happens, Thinaer employee feedback technology and change management services boost employee adoption and deployment across an organization. The complete system bridges industrial IoT data collection, human factors, real-time analytics, and reporting. Get in touch to learn more!

Sensitive Aircraft Material Protection

Monitor Aircraft Component Material Properties and Environmental Factors in Real-Time

  • Reduce production waste by using inventory within prescribed storage times and conditions
  • Prevent rework due to material failure that occurs when expired raw materials are used
  • Avoid manufacturing bottlenecks caused by damaged raw materials
  • Capture employee feedback and input to optimize workflows across the enterprise

How it’s Done

Placing Thinaer industrial IoT sensors on sensitive raw material containers enables real-time monitoring of environmental factors. The sensors continuously track characteristics such as material age, location, temperature, humidity, and vibration. Cellular and BLE beacons transmit that data to feed Thinaer artificial intelligence (AI)-powered diagnostic analytics. Detecting material problems before they occur improves output volume and quality by preventing rework.

How it’s Different

Thinaer technology maximizes material use in order to support a high quality output of the manufacturing process. Rather than risking material failure due to storage issues, our material monitoring and management prevents expensive waste and rework.

Thinaer change management service ensures a smooth technology rollout and our human feedback technology facilitates broad employee adoption. Those factors together accelerate expansion across facilities and divisions. Get in touch to learn more!

Digital Transformation of Brownfield Equipment

Extend the Life of Brownfield Equipment

  • Reduce capital expenditures by increasing asset life
  • Eliminate unplanned downtime caused by failing machinery
  • Stop costly waste due to inadequate environmental monitoring
  • Reduce spare part stock by maintaining accurate supply inventory

How it’s Done

Thinaer industrial IoT sensors monitor machine health by continuously sensing pressure, vibration, voltage, current, temperature, and environmental factors such as temperature and humidity.

Environmental Monitoring
Predictive Maintenance

How it’s Different

Precision aerospace manufacturing machines can fail with difficult-to-detect condition changes or if timing is off by a thousandth of a second. The Thinaer platform trains machine learning models to assess equipment health and schedule maintenance based on a continuous accumulation of sensor data. Then, an artificial intelligence (AI)-based health and usage monitoring system (HUMS) detects and predicts anomalies based on actual conditions — so that asset managers can schedule maintenance before failure and around production requirements.

Thinaer industrial IoT sensors work with new and legacy infrastructure, and you can access the analytics on any connected device. Get in touch to learn more!

Workforce Insights

Optimize Business Processes by Engaging Front-Line Workers

  • Implement more effective process improvements tailored to your operations by identifying barriers and roadblocks that negatively impact productivity
  • Eliminate process change delays by engaging front-line employees
  • Quickly resolve minor operational issues and determine when major problems require escalation by ensuring line workers can provide qualitative input
  • Reach a point of predictable production, scaling improvements throughout your organization faster

How it’s Done

To accelerate workflow optimization and ROI for industrial IoT systems, Thinaer human feedback technology collects and incorporates front-line worker input on assets, processes, and workflows throughout each facility.
