AeroScout®, a leading provider of Enterprise Visibility Solutions, today announced that its Real-Time Location System (RTLS) and Asset Tracking & Management solution have been successfully deployed by Boston Networks, enabling FMC Technologies to quickly and accurately locate high value equipment within its manufacturing facility. The system leverages FMC’s existing Boston Networks Wi-Fi infrastructure to help improve operational efficiency and business processes by eliminating the need to manually search for items. Based in Scotland, FMC Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FTI) is a leading global provider of technology solutions for the energy industry. The Boston Networks solution, utilizing AeroScout’s RTLS, is now fully operational at FMC’s Dunfermline Subsea Facility, a 213,000 square-foot plant responsible for the design and manufacturing of subsea trees, wellhead systems and associated equipment for the oil and gas industry. The FMC production and testing environment is highly volatile and assets are regularly on the move. Real-time visibility of these assets throughout the manufacturing process is crucial for:
- Improving and optimizing operations
- Increasing production throughput
- Improving plant health and safety
