How can GPS technology be used in manufacturing? Does
GPS manufacturing usefulness
go beyond transportation and logistics? Is it worth the investment, especially in this economy?
GPS has broad manufacturing applicability
in logistics and physical distribution, particularly as global supply chains lengthen and grow in complexity. Beyond that it has some interesting applications in the building of new factories which, while not mobile in a traditional sense, are certainly increasingly modular. The ability to track factory modules across a broad network of multiple smaller factory locations is certainly intriguing.
