IDIS Smart Factory wins National Productivity Award, receives presidential citation


IDIS, South Korea’s largest in-country manufacturer of security technology, was honored with a “National Productivity Award” presidential citation in the country’s 42nd National Productivity Competition, sponsored by the South Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy. The National Productivity Award competition, run by Korea Productivity Center at COEX, Seoul, provides government recognition for corporations, organizations, and individuals who have shown leadership in applying productivity to achieve successful, documented business outcomes.

The award and citation recognized IDIS for its custom-designed IDIS Smart Factory, purpose-built to match business requirements and characteristics seamlessly. 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, utilizing big data to modularize and refine production processes to ideally meet the company’s requirements.
Each process in the IDIS Smart Factory is computerized—from material warehousing to management, production, function tests and even packaging—resulting in increased productivity. In addition, real-time production planning, cause-of-defect analysis, and tracking were able to be achieved by breaking down process histories.

With the computerization of the automatic processes in the IDIS Smart Factory, if a certain product is missing materials or doesn’t pass a functionality test, it does not proceed to the next stage. This blocks any possible defects, enhancing customer satisfaction by improving quality and creating products that can be massively customized.

As a result, IDIS saw increased productivity, with decreased inefficiency, allowing it to remain focused on innovation, and the continual enhancement of customer experience.
The National Productivity Award further recognized IDIS’ innovative technology worldwide, noting the overall value of the company in the global security and surveillance marketplace.
“It is rewarding to see the IDIS Smart Factory, which has taken years of effort to build, receive this prize,” noted IDIS CEO Y. D. Kim said. “Recognized 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
