Janssen Biologics - Mobile Workstations
The Challenge Faced
Depending on the process flow many companies find it necessary to have fully mobile battery powered workstations with all the functionality associated with a static location. In recognition of this VisionID now provides a custom solution encompassing all the components of a desk in a moveable ergonomic workstation. As each customer’s requirements are unique the solution is fully configurable to meet your changing needs.
Robert Jones, VisionID Managing Director say’s: ”To explain the success of these products people are looking for big screen data capture and data entry on a mobile workstation for on the job applications of inputting information into an ERP systems such as SAP or an MES system (manufacturing execution system) for which the screen size of a mobile computer is unsuitable.”
VisionID, Ireland’s leading supplier of Mobile Computing, Barcode and Data Capture solutions in the Irish market is having major success in the Irish manufacturing space in both traditional Manufacturing and Life Sciences (Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices) arenas with Powered Mobile Workstation.
The Mobile Workstation offers a wireless solution around the factory floor using real time communication through WIFI on a choice of thin client, touch computer, laptop or full desktop PC all powered from the base battery pack giving six hours operational time after a full charge. The peripherals or accessories that can be attached to suit the best work practices are standard monitor, touch monitor, corded or cordless scanner and a local or wireless barcode printer. Because a “standard” PC can be used on the move, this potentially will save a lot of time and expense in the Life Sciences industry, as generally full validation of the solution is not required.
Recently VisionID have also added the computer wall mount to its product portfolio which has drawn huge interest for computing in tight spaces in corridors outside freezer and quarantine areas for booking goods in and out of these locations.
VisionID have the ability to customise bespoke projects in both the Mobile Workstations and the wall mounts to suit each customer’s operational needs and applications.
Over the last decade VisionID have organically grown the business by designing and then manufacturing the products that our customers tell us they need, in fact most of the products we have in our range, started life as a customer request.
Our passion is in designing and then building products that are better than those that already exist in the market, are better value, or solving a customer requirement where no suitable products currently exists at all.
Return On Investment
Janssen Biologistics needed a mobile solution for integration with their Manufacturing Execution System (MES).
According to, Janssen Biologics “Our MES system is the backbone of our manufacturing process here in Janssen Biologics. A lot of our processes require monitoring and user input of information via barcode scanning of material and equipment information. The Mobile Workstation give us the ability to move our EBR’s (Electronic Batch Records) with our process and also to scan barcode information directly into our MES software. Given that we are using standard PC technology, no extra validation was required. We also can view EBR’s in view screen, allowing us to review every detail which is imperative in our industry.
