IDIS, South Korea’s largest in-country manufacturer of surveillance technology, has been honoured with a National Productivity Award presidential citation in the country’s 42nd National Productivity Competition, which is sponsored by the South Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.
The National Productivity Award competition, run by the Korea Productivity Centre at COEX in Seoul, affords Government recognition for corporations, organisations and individuals who have shown leadership in applying productivity to achieve successful and documented business outcomes.
The award and citation recognises IDIS for its custom-designed IDIS Smart Factory, which is purpose-built to match business requirements on a seamless basis. The IDIS Smart Factory, which assembles the varied components of the IDIS Total Solution sold and installed throughout the world, operates with a flexible production system, using Big Data to modularise and refine production processes in order to meet the company’s requirements.
Each process in the IDIS Smart Factory is computerised, from material warehousing to management, production, function tests and even packaging. This results in increased productivity. In addition, real-time production planning, cause-of-defect analysis and tracking can be achieved by breaking down process histories.
With the computerisation of the automatic processes in the IDIS Smart Factory, if a certain product is missing materials or doesn’t pass a functionality test, it doesn’t proceed to the next stage. This blocks any possible defects, in turn enhancing customer satisfaction by improving quality and creating products that can be massively customised.
As a result, IDIS has seen increased productivity coupled with decreased inefficiency, allowing the business to remain focused on innovation and the continual enhancement of customer experience.
The National Productivity Award further recognises IDIS’ innovative technology worldwide, noting the overall value of the company in the global security and surveillance marketplace.
“It’s rewarding to see the IDIS Smart Factory, which has taken years of effort to build, receive this prize,” noted IDIS’ CEO YD Kim. “Recognised as a leader in Korea’s 4th 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.”
