Highlights

Challenges

01

The company, which manufactures various metal products, is looking for a digital solution for order management. Currently, the production manager is the one receiving the order, then he plans what kind of machine, for what person and in what order to process shall be used to produce the final product for the customer. 4-6 equipment / machine tools are used to make the final product, which are serviced by 2-4 people. The available metalworking machines are very diverse: from small simple to modern laser and they do not „communicate“ with each other. Thus, the entire production plan of the company is managed on paper and in the mind of the production manager. What solution would you suggest for process digitalisation?

More details available from mentor Dainius Urbanavičius.

02

Sustainable and innovative labelling of mail bags. Currently Lithuanian Post is shipping mail and small packages within large mail bags which are then secured with plastic zip straps and labeled with paper tags which indicate shipping direction and type of containing packages. During a day Vilnius logistics center prepares up to 3000 such mail bags. Once bag reaches its destination, the zip strap and tags are cut off and disposed. Within a year there are about 600 000 disposed zip straps and tags in total. What solution could replace plastic zip straps and tags (and potentially mail bags) that would still enable sorting small packages, securing them and would have all the shipping details necessary?

03

Sustainable and innovative postal packaging. Companies are often using packaging materials that are difficult to recycle. Also, the packaging is often way larger than the product shipped within. Moreover, all the materials offered in Lithuanian Post Offices pack-yourself areas are non-recyclable and non-ecologic. What solution could be implemented either to reduce, reuse or replace these resources?

04

Solution to transfer data from locomotives. Currently, Lithuanian Railways are tracking large amounts of data in locomotives and passenger trains (video data, engine data, sensor data, etc.). There are about 30GB of data from each trip, which is gathered with mix and low-speed methods. Future plans include increasing amount of IoT sensors added to locomotives and passenger trains which would also increase the amount of data gathered during each trip. What solution could be implemented to easier and faster data collection and transfer to cloud for real time data analysis?

05

Solution to identify bulk material volume. AB “Kelių priežiūra” keeps bulk material in open air pits and warehouses. Conventional methods of volume identification requires too many manual work hours and specialized surveying equipment. Thus, inventory check is rare and it causes inaccuracies or loss of materials. What digital solution could be implemented to ensure fast and easy bulk material volume and weight check in real time?

Contactless solution to weigh truck. AB “Kelių priežiūra” manages more than 300 trucks and 70 pits. However, it is not clear what volumes of inventory are coming in or coming out of the pits. Digital solutions cannot be installed into the truck as truck inventory is not always owned by “Kelių priežiūra”. What digital solution could be implemented to ensure fast check of truck volume?
