Defense company to standardize, automate manufacturing operations
Defense company BAE Systems has selected Tapestry Solutions, a Boeing subsidiary, to assist with standardizing and automating its manufacturing operations. Tapestry has already set up its Enterprise Sensor Integration (ESI) software platform at BAE Systems’ facility in Nashua, New Hampshire.
The ESI platform is designed to bring together disparate sensors and devices to give manufacturing managers a single user interface to work from. Developing a complete picture of asset movements and inventory is part of BAE Systems’ effort to streamline manufacturing operations.
According to Tapestry Solutions, plans are in place to roll out ESI at further BAE Systems manufacturing plants in New Hampshire, New Jersey, Texas, and California.
Tapestry Solutions’ ESI software has been designed to give defesce and commercial manufacturers more control and insight into their data. The system is sensor-agnostic, which is designed to help BAE Systems make light work of any connectivity challenges with regards to legacy equipment and future advances.
