IDIS, the South Korean surveillance product manufacturer, was honoured with a “National Productivity Award” presidential citation in the country’s 42nd National Productivity Competition, sponsored by the South Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.
The competition, run by the Korea Productivity Center at COEX, Seoul, recognises corporations, organisations and individuals who have shown leadership in applying productivity to achieve business outcomes. The award and citation recognised IDIS for its IDIS Smart Factory, purpose-built to match business requirements and characteristics seamlessly. The IDIS Smart Factory, pictured, which assembles the components of IDIS products, operates with a flexible production system, using big data to modularise and refine production processes, the company says.
Each process in the IDIS Smart Factory is computerised, from material warehousing to management, production, function tests and packaging. Real-time production planning, cause-of-defect analysis, and tracking were achieved by breaking down process histories.
With the computerisation of the automatic processes in the factory, if a certain product is missing materials or doesn’t pass a functionality test, it does not proceed to the next stage. This blocks defects, and creates products that can be customised, the makers say.
IDIS CEO YD Kim said: “It is rewarding to see the IDIS Smart Factory, which has taken years of effort to build, receive this prize. Recognised as a leader in Korea’s fourth Industrial Revolution, IDIS will continue to strive to be the best global video surveillance manufacturer, deepening our impact in the industry through our advancements in the application of Artificial Intelligence to our technology solutions.”
