IBM Revolutionizes Container Tracking for Groupe PSA with Sigfox

Del

IBM announce with Sigfox the launch within Groupe PSA of the innovative “Track&Trace” solution for the digitalization of package (container) tracking between suppliers and assembly plants. This solution, based on IBM’s cloud-based Internet of Things technologies and Sigfox’ international “0G” network allows Groupe PSA to optimize container rotation between the various PSA’supplier sites and factories.

With “Track&Trace” and thanks to IBM Watson IoT’ solution, Groupe PSA tracks its sensor-equipped containers in real time through Sigfox’ network. The solution, easy to deploy, offers simple and efficient services to reduce production line breakdowns and eliminate packaging waste in order to prevent incidents. It is currently being deployed at several sites of the group.

We are constantly looking for technological solutions to meet with the needs of our factories and to be as efficient as possible. This “Track&Trace” system allows us to know, individually and in detail, where our containers are located. This technological advance must allow to optimize our rotation loops and to prevent incidents. It is a real disruption and a new step in the digitalization of the Supply Chain,” says Yann Vincent, EVP Manufacturing & Supply Chain Groupe PSA.

At the end of supplier consultation phase leading to the choice of IBM, the business solution was co-created and developed during a design thinking session at IBM Studio with Groupe PSA’s logistic experts. It was then industrialized within IBM France’s ScaleZone, a structure federating open ecosystems to develop multi-stakeholder projects.

This co-construction approach has been possible thanks to the close collaboration between IBM, Groupe PSA and Sigfox, which aimed at bringing this solution to an industrial scale.

I am proud that IBM is Groupe PSA’s trusted partner for its efficient logistics. With this innovative project, we are demonstrating the value of working in a conjoined ecosystem and in particular with a partner such as Sigfox, to develop new digital usages in a co-innovating process with Groupe PSA”, said Nicolas Sekkaki, President IBM France.

Based on the latest technological innovation on the Internet of Things field, the solution was developed by IBM services to be integrated into the industrial environment, from the sensor’s adaptation (size, fixing, constraints…) to the deployment of an “As A Service” container solution. Already integrating IBM’s analytical services, it will be able to develop and evolve in line with business needs and new logistic uses, through Artificial Intelligence and technology sharing within Blockchain ecosystems.

Asset management and tracking is constantly growing for the companies. This is the most important demand on the IoT market. We are delighted to combine Watson IoT’s power with our seamless international network to enable Groupe PSA to improve its Supply Chain,” said Ludovic Le Moan, CEO and co-founder of Sigfox.

IBM, Sigfox and Groupe PSA plan to offer this platform to other European manufacturers from 2019.
