Losses from supplies and equipment theft, or the complete shutdown of a manufacturing facility, can bring productivity to an abrupt halt. Losses can be monumental. Building perimeter security is only the beginning of the planning process in building an efficient security system. Modern security solutions also provide actionable business intelligence, asset protection, asset tracking, and worker safety.
Security planning starts at the exterior of the building. Authorized personnel need to come in easily and unwanted visitors need to stay out. Intrusion detection, access control, and video surveillance systems provide the most common and fundamental circle of protection.
Business Intelligence and Worker Safety with Analytics
Modern security systems not only secure your facility, but also generate a significant amount of data that can be used to improve your operations. For example, video systems can now analyze the image content of the video streams to understand where, and how often, specific events are occurring. These analyses help to streamline safety and optimize productivity. By deploying “virtual lines” in the camera software, the system can determine when employees cross into unsafe areas, providing the opportunity for improved safety, and many more highly useful behavior analysis rules can be applied to the video content.
Asset Protection and Tracking
Access control for doors to sensitive areas allow only authorized personnel to gain access. When it comes to movable assets, you can track of each one, showing where the asset is, or if it’s left an area or building. Expensive or critical assets, such as computers, medical equipment, specialized tools, can be tracked and located quickly by using systems specifically designed to keep your business moving.
Aside from video analytics notifying teams of unsafe activities in dangerous areas, the creative integration of access control, asset tracking, and various equipment controls provides additional layers of safety and security. As an example, an employee who has not completed a safety orientation class can be prevented from starting a potentially dangerous machine by flagging his access control credential.
Manufacturing companies should be able to focus on their core business without worrying about security. Unless the company has a dedicated security team, security projects may be fast-tracked to get them out of the way or remain on the back burner.
