Industrial environments – like manufacturing plants, mines, refineries, power generation plants and warehouses – can be chaotic places. Assets come and go. Material is constantly in motion. Without the proper safeguards in place, things get lost – harming efficiency, productivity and profitability.
Fortunately, it is possible to generate accurate, real-time data on the location and lifecycle of high-value assets within industrial environments. A properly designed and deployed RFID system can essentially eliminate the possibility of assets going missing for any significant amount of time, while providing a number of ancillary benefits.
Why Use RFID for Industrial Asset Tracking?
By tagging critical industrial assets with ruggedized passive RFID tags, then setting up a number of reader “checkpoints” at key points, managers and staffers can garner real-time data on the movement and location of individual throughout the facility. Such a solution automates a significant amount of manual tasks – slashing time spent searching for materials, reducing waste and loss, and creating money-saving efficiencies from Day 1.
A professionally developed RFID asset tracking system can:
- Increase labor productivity by providing material handling personnel with instant, accurate directions for pickup or movement
- Essentially eliminate “lost” assets
- Ensure staff focus on core competencies
- Cut wait time at workstations by ensuring that materials arrive in a timely fashion
- Allow for more precise scheduling and minimize non-value-added staff downtime
- Reduce the need for routine inventory cycle counts and audits by identifying potential discrepancies well before they impact the bottom line
