Jakarta, 9 June 2022 – As a leading digital telco, Telkomsel continues to strengthen its role in accelerating the transformation of cross-industrial sectors in Indonesia through the utilization of the latest technology. This effort is demonstrated by launching the Telkomsel Internet of Things (IoT) Smart Manufacturing service, which is a digital solution for the manufacturing industry that covers the entire supply chain in the company such as production, quality, maintenance, and warehouse. This integrated end-to-end solution presented by Telkomsel IoT Smart Manufacturing enables the creation of a sustainable manufacturing industry, by encouraging increased efficiency, productivity, and security in every company operational process through accurate data analysis.
Director of Planning & Transformation Telkomsel Wong Soon Nam says, "Telkomsel is consistent in its efforts to support various business players across industrial sectors in Indonesia in accelerating the transformation of operational systems using the latest IoT-based technology that can open more opportunities for companies to optimize their operational efficiency and productivity. With the support of IoT Smart Manufacturing services, Telkomsel presents an integrated digital solution in the manufacturing chain that is in line with the roadmap of Indonesian industry players in an ecosystem that supports the commitment of Making Indonesia 4.0. This step also reaffirms Telkomsel's commitment to support the government to make Indonesia one of the strongest elements of the world's economy by 2030 through accelerating the transformation of Industry 4.0."
On the same occasion, Head of Optimization Center for Industrial Technology Utilization and Industrial Service Policy, Ministry of Industry Republic of Indonesia, Heru Kustanto says, "Kemenperin appreciates Telkomsel as one of the best comprehensive solution providers in the manufacturing sector as an industrial partner in transforming towards Industry 4.0 in Indonesia. We will continue to support solution enablers such as Telkomsel who build synergies and collaborate with various parties to realize Indonesia 4.0."
Soon Nam adds, “Telkomsel IoT Smart Manufacturing is also proof of our concern for the impact of the industry on the environment. The integrated end-to-end solution from Telkomsel IoT Smart Manufacturing will not only provide increased productivity and company efficiency, but also support the creation of an environmentally friendly manufacturing industry, in accordance with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) target proclaimed by the Indonesian government and the United Nations to build an industry that prioritizes aspects of social inclusion and environmental sustainability.”
The integrated solution from Telkomsel IoT Smart Manufacturing allows the creation of a sustainable manufacturing industry because the production of manufactured products is carried out through an integrated process that is more economical in order to minimize negative impacts on the environment through energy and natural resource conservation. Sustainable manufacturing is also one of the SDGs achievement areas proclaimed by the United Nations and the government guided by the National Action Plan for Sustainable Development Goals, especially related to efforts to ensure universal access to affordable and reliable energy by 2030; ensure work processes are productive as well as safe, secure, and contribute to sustainable economic growth across the industry; and ensuring infrastructure that is reliable, resilient, and capable of achieving economic growth while also addressing environmental challenges.
By leveraging the advantages of Telkomsel's digital ecosystem, IoT Smart Manufacturing is a one-stop solution that can transform the company's supply chain from upstream to downstream (end-to-end supply chain) to become integrated, thereby increasing efficiency, productivity, and operational security for business stability. This latest digital solution from Telkomsel IoT opens opportunities for the enterprise segment to get more comprehensive support, starting from consultation, availability of devices and software, integrated systems, data analysis, cyber security, connectivity, up to leading after sales services. This support is given as an effort by Telkomsel to provide convenience for the enterprise segment in adopting IoT Smart Manufacturing technology.
Soon Nam further explains that the Telkomsel IoT Smart Manufacturing service provides a more comprehensive solution because it includes production control & monitoring, overall equipment efficiency (OEE), quality control using computer vision, manufacturing execution system (MES), and energy management. In addition, this digital solution can be combined with other Telkomsel IoT solutions, such as IoT Asset Performance Management for warehousing needs, IoT Manage SD-WAN 5G for reliable and secure cloud-based connectivity solutions, IoT Fleetsight for asset monitoring, and IoT Control Tower for order management to build an increasingly integrated smart industrial ecosystem.
Currently, the digital solution presented by Telkomsel IoT has also been utilized by PT. Akebono Brake Astra Indonesia as the largest brake manufacturer in Indonesia. Through this collaboration, Telkomsel IoT Smart Manufacturing is implemented to overcome warehouse management system and part pulling system problems which are still an obstacle for the company in optimizing efficiency and productivity because they have not been fully integrated.
Technical Director PT Akebono Brake Astra Indonesia Daniel Suryananta says, “We are excited about the business innovation presented by Telkomsel IoT Smart Manufacturing. We need an integrated warehouse management system and part pulling system to accelerate the work process and prevent human error as a manufacturing company. The collaboration has helped us through the “Part Pulling Monitoring System”, a business process transaction solution. We can trace part in a playbox in real-time, instantly, and with an accurate report, supported by RFID. Now, the work process of part pulling or part supply has become more efficient and productive.”
