Vanderlande Industries introduces the innovative VIBES.MOM, the mobile version of our software suite VIBES, the high quality solution for efficient airport baggage handling systems. The VIBES.MOM is a tablet wirelessly connected to the control room server(s) and provides access to vital operational and maintenance information without need to access computers or hardcopy binders in the control room. Henk de Groot, VP, Operations explains; “During the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) Annual Conference and Exposition in Atlanta last week, visitors could experience Vanderlande Industries solution to bring the control room to the plant floor. This Mobile Operations Manager (MOM) increases labor efficiency, improves system uptime and gives managers insight in the performance of their baggage handling system at any location. Our launch of VIBES.MOM reconfirms our position as innovative leader in the baggage handling industry and our ability to continuously improve the operations and maintenance processes of our clients.”
The controls department of Vanderlande Industries USA is innovative and always on top of latest technologies when it comes to airport baggage handling systems. With the clients in mind a software suite was developed with the collection of tools that together create VIBES.MOM. The VIBES.MOM tablet can display operational status, reports, operation and maintenance information, business process intelligence dashboard and allows for spare parts ordering while on the plant floor for managers, maintenance employee and operators. The user has all the control room functionalities at hand anywhere and anytime.
Reduce costs by using VIBES.MOM
The big advantage of VIBES.MOM is that essential operations and maintenance information is available on the plant floor. When a maintenance engineer receives an ‘error’ message, he/she can easily access the necessary information on the spot and is able to quicker find the solution to solve the problem. Smaller airports can save money with the VIBES.MOM by eliminating the control room operator position entirely. With the VIBES.MOM tablet the control room operator tasks can be combined with operational tasks while being on the plant floor and thus reduce manpower.
How the VIBES.MOM tablet works
VIBES.MOM uses a Windows Mobile based tablet and consists of a suite of tools installed in one comprehensive suite. These tools give access to the actual information available on the servers in the baggage handling system control room by a wireless LAN connection, or a GPRS data connection. The actual data processing is still done on control room based computers. The tablet only displays the retrieved information thus minimizing the bandwidth required for smooth operation. The flexible and modular baggage handling software enables the complete operational management of airport baggage handling systems. The VIBES software suite makes it possible for airports to reduce mishandled bag rates and analyzes system usage & performance, optimally plans resources, optimizes maintenance schedules and therefore supports you to continuously improve your business.
