SICK’s Package Analytics software for reliable identification and data management

analytics software: monitoring and evaluating data to make the right decisions

Intelligent sensors record and communicate data, but
there’s no real added value involved until this data can be used to make
decisions on ways to improve processes. ‘Big data’ has become a real issue for
companies, particularly in logistics environments where plants are tasked with
processing millions of packages each day. On the one hand this data offers
great opportunities; on the other hand, however, the process of preparing it in
a way that allows companies to make the right decisions presents a significant

This is why we created the ‘Package Analytics’ software,
which calls upon our extensive practical experience with automatic
identification resources to provide a solution for these data recording and
analysis requirements. This software allows you to retrieve and analyse
information on system performance as well as the statuses of all recorded data
with ease – from an individual package on the conveyor to an overview of the
millions transported each day. This provides operators with direct access to
the key variables for the materials flow, allowing them to understand and
control these variables in a more appropriate way. The dynamic database
solution simplifies the processes of monitoring, analysing, and creating
reports, while images or videos of the packages can be prefiltered and analysed
with ease in line with predefined selection criteria.

scalability and remote access

The Package Analytics software can record and visualise
the barcode quality and read rate of an individual system. Not only this, but
the high-performance client/server platform can be used across several systems
on a single site or even networked over multiple locations. The service and
support team offers exceptional system throughput without the hassle of a
call-out – the SICK Meeting Point Router (MPR) provides safe and reliable
remote access worldwide to the systems and plants listed in the Package
Analytics software.

Analytics Software

Key features and benefits include ability to monitor, analyse
and optimise all processes from individual identification systems through to
multi-site enterprises; improved operating times thanks to rapid notifications
and cause analysis; simple image and data exchange to meet customer conformity
requirements easily; shorter response times thanks to automatic notifications
of ‘no reads’ or other unusual incidents; inspections of package conditions to
reduce liability claims and support cause analysis in the case of processing
errors; and increased system performance thanks to exceptional visualisations
of system operations.

SICK’s Package Analytics software provides
comprehensive, real-time performance monitoring of automated logistics
operations. From an individual package on a conveyor to an enterprise that processes
millions of packages per day, Package Analytics helps you drive timely
decisions in high-volume distribution centres. Throughout receiving, sorting or
shipping operations, this software helps boost quality, accuracy and
efficiency. Valuable trending data, high-resolution images or video for
validation, and track and trace information are all easily within your reach
with SICK’s Package Analytics software.
