In post covid scenario where remote working is the new normal digitalization and use of IoT is the need of the hour. In most manufacturing environment now focus will be to increase the competitiveness and productivity. Optimum use of men and material requires improved production/assembly line management and information about location of resources. Automatic asset tracking in production/assembly line empowers manager to take data driven decisions. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is one such technology for effectively monitoring resources movement and improving performance and safety of production/assembly line.
Since BLE technology is not popular in manufacturing environment the aim of the study is to prioritize most critical waste in production/assembly line and showcase the use of BLE technology for asset tracking. A framework is proposed to leverage the technology and to reduce the waste
