Better business decisions with real-time data

appropriate information, says Jain.

Security applications include tracking storage containers during shipping and at ports.

From the university to industry

For the most part, Jains research has focused on manufacturing applications.

The decreasing cost of sensors RFID, bar-code and GPS-based devices and networks has made it practical for many businesses to acquire real-time information, says Jain. However, organizational structures, processes and systems need to be aligned to take advantage of this.

The promise of this technology for manufacturing has drawn research partners Rockwell Automation and Tata Consultancy Services.

Rockwell Automation, a leader in industrial automation products, software and services, has partnered with Jain on real-time enterprises to enable visibility and tracking of manufacturing data throughout the enterprise.

Real-time access to manufacturing data is essential to optimizing factory production, said Sujeet Chand, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Rockwell Automation. Dr. Jains research on novel software solutions for enterprise-wide decision-making enables flexible manufacturing, as well as tracking and tracing of raw materials to finished products.

Manipulating the manufacturing chain

At UWM, real-time research has proven to be a good multidisciplinary umbrella, with a number of people in the College of Engineering and Applied Science working with us, says Jain.

Matthew Petering, assistant professor in Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering, is working on the programming and software aspects. He describes as explosive the growth in the use of micro- to nanoscale embedded devices and sensors in all aspects of manufacturing.

We are developing control software that takes advantage of the real-time data generated by these devices to support real-time decision-making, Petering says.
