Project - LOGwear


Description (EN): Wearables (wearable devices) offer several possibilities for companies to optimize their (logistical) processes, regarding e.g. increasing of efficiency, reduction of mistakes and / or creation of a more economic and safer working environment. The project LOGwear offers companies the possibility to get advice about how to optimize their processes by using wearable devices. At some of the participants one specific process will be optimized by using one or more wearables, including phases like concept development to testing in the real process environment. By developing an amount of open-source products, the accessibility for an it-integration will be way easier. This gives the opportunity to benefit from this technology on the short term.
Description: Wearables (draagbare computersystemen) bieden steeds meer mogelijkheden voor bedrijven om (logistieke) processen te optimaliseren, m.b.t. verhoging van efficiëntie, reductie van fouten en / of een economischere en veiligere werkwijze. Het project LOGwear biedt bedrijven de mogelijkheid om processen te laten analyseren en aanbevelingen te ontvangen m.b.t. de inzet van wearables in hun processen. Bij een aantal deelnemers wordt in het kader van dit project één concreet logistiek proces geoptimaliseerd, van conceptontwikkeling tot testfase, gebruik makend van een of meerdere wearables. Verder wordt door een aantal open source producten de toegankelijkheid voor een IT-integratie gemakkelijker. Dit biedt de kans om op vroege termijn van de voordelen van wearables te kunnen profiteren.
