Material Supply IoT World

IoT for guidance in the material supply chain in the public sector

This project will analyze the entire material supply chain to arrive at where adjustments can be made that improve the inventory overview. The goal is to produce a procurement document with requirements specifications that can be used in the procurement of material supply systems. In addition to Region Östergötland, RISE, IoT World and also the municipalities of Kinda and Linköping, the project will serve as references for how these adaptations can work. The idea is that the procurement documentation can also be used by and applied in other businesses.

The project group will look at technical solutions but also routines. Among other things, they will look at what it looks like where the actual extraction of materials is made and how to make inventories. In the end the wish is to automate as much as possible and to make it easier for the end users, the staff in healthcare and other parts of the public sector.

Students developing technical solutions for the public sector

During the autumn, a collaboration took place between a program development methodology course at Linköping University and the material supply project within IoT World. As part of this collaboration, students in the program development course were given the opportunity to contribute their ideas and solutions for improving the supply of materials in healthcare.

Words from the partners

– As it looks today, we know what comes into our warehouses, but we have no overview of the rate at which it is consumed. We do not see how much material is in stock in the departments, Claes Otterborg, Project Manager at Region Östergötland explains.

– Having a well-functioning material supply for our operations is crucial to be able to provide care. This presupposes good control over the flows of materials, which in turn requires the right system support. The project is an important part of our work to continue to develop the material supply within Region Östergötland and we look forward with confidence to what the results can lead us, adds Charlotta Jonegård, Center Manager for Purchasing, Service and Logistics at Region Östergötland.
