RFID can provide automatic data acquisition and feed critical information to almost any system, eliminating costly errors and providing cost savings with every order.
FREMONT, CA: RFID is a useful technology for manufactures as it enhances standard, provides reliability, reduces costs, and improves data storage. Manufactures used to take advantage of RFID for light applications such as inventory management. However, today, it offers benefits for mission-critical manufacturing applications throughout the production process.
Here are four ways manufacturers RFID can benefit manufacturing businesses:
RFID provides real-time data for inventory management and warehouse monitoring. It helps staff know when inventory needs replenishing or where an asset is in the warehouse, preventing possible costly delays.
APIs and data integrations can be set up to feed data automatically to the systems, allowing easy access to information on mobile devices and see in real-time where an asset is or the production status of an order.
Safety is a top priority for manufacturers, and one approach is to make sure employees do not put themselves in danger during production. RFID helps achieve this step by gathering relevant production data and tracking assets digitally during dangerous operations. Employees can prevent potential safety hazards in the workplace with the RFID systems managing data acquisitions. It can also alert employees of potential dangers in the workplace to prevent issues from happening.
RFID chips and tags can help manage applications, have end-to-end traceability, pass audits easily with the data. This is essential as a growing number of customers, and regulation want end-to-end traceability.
Automation and Error:
Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) technology needs only little human interaction to operate. Once implemented, the device can collect data, transmit information to another system, and recognize an object which helps prevent human error and place the team to other essential tasks while still gathering vital data. With this technology, more and informed data can be gathered without raising costs and influencing productions.
