In an excessively busy factory, a shortage of manpower is more likely to happen due to the overload of orders which may lead to immoderate overtime for workers. This is a customary hindrance to a factory's higher production aims where the initial practice yielded a long lead time for packing of servers that are ready for delivery. The packing of servers includes the manual search of a specific server in multiple trolley racks, which may take an average of 7 hours for an order. Readily available information such as the Internet-of-Things(IoT) can be fully utilized to implement automation in such companies. The proposed solution is to implement the Pack Predictive Scheduling (PPS) System for a Smart Factory and track these travelling servers by attaching a router to it that has indicative LED lighting connected to it for easier detection. It also encompasses the study of standardized networking protocols and the necessary steps taken to achieve the desired interoperability.
