RFID in Manufacturing

While manufacturing, different materials are used. The materials differ in sizes, weights, proportions, dimensions, value etc.

RFID assists you to inventory the usage, location, balance of the materials in real time with no error. This helps in forecasting the supply requirements and scheduling ready goods.

Consider the ideal manufacturing and distribution process. Would it eliminate human error, improve speed and efficiency? Increase information availability? Would it offer high security and deliver data without a network connection?

In most manufacturing and distribution environments, the challenge is to produce and move quantities quickly with the least amount of handling and in the most efficient and profitable way possible. One of the latest technologies developed to manage quantity distribution is radio frequency identification (RFID).

RFID Simplifies Business Processes

More than a great technology, RFID is an excellent business tool that helps manage supply chains, increase margins and profits, and decrease costs.

In manufacturing and distribution environments, the adoption of RFID technology can deliver:
  • Smoother-running business environments—knowing precisely where inventory is
  • Increased throughput and productivity
  • Reduced costs, leading to more competitive pricing
  • Shorter order cycles
  • Faster shipping
  • Better inventory management
  • Reduced labor costs by reducing the workforce needed for tracking and inventory management
  • Increased revenues/higher profits
  • Better customer service

Real Benefits, Minimal Risk

There is no reason any company should wait to take advantage of RFID technology and its benefits. The technology is mature, highly functional, and supported by current and emerging standards. Manufacturing companies of all sizes have established proven track records in self-implementing RFID technology and are reaping real benefits in increased productivity, process improvements, and reduced costs and errors.
