The Smart Workplace concept is closely associated with Intelligent Buildings and Smart Facilities. In this context, it is related to various Building Automation solutions including Smart Lighting, Smart Security (such as access control via biometrics), Intelligent HVAC systems, and more.
Roughly speaking, the Smart Workplace is characterized as one that provides a safer, more comfortable, and productive work environment. Beyond the solutions mentioned above, next generation smart workplaces will include advanced technologies such as detection systems to determine presence of employees for work space optimization.
While closely tied to Smart Buildings, it is important to note that the Smart Workplace is not tied to only to a building space as remote work includes home workers, telecommuting, and work while traveling. Accordingly, a larger definition of the Smart Workplace includes technologies and solutions to enable more efficient and effective workflow and other business operation considerations.
A broader definition of “Smart Workplace” takes into consideration those technologies and solutions that provide process improvement, work flow improvement, internal and external supply chain management optimization, visibility into product/service usage, opportunities for moving from products to services in an “as a Service” model, intelligent worker monitoring, data analytics, control of the entire Product Life Cycle (PLM), and more.
