Solutions that produce results.
Manufacturing businesses have a lot of moving parts – and we don’t just mean on the assembly line. Data must move and update quickly and accurately and be able to be retreived easily. Real-time RFID enhanced asset and workforce tracking can mass-produce productivity and increase safety.
RFID Component Tracking Solution with eTrack
Material workflow can be a tricky dance for manufacturers – too much inventory wastes money, but insufficient quantities can lead to production delays and missed deadlines. Components must be available when needed so the manufacturers all-important work-in-progress (WIP) cycle doesn’t miss a beat.
eTRACK GETS YOU GOING
A key to RFID is setting up the system – deciding what information to collect, the assets and products to be labeled and what to show on your handheld screens. Here’s where eTrack software shines, allowing OPI to quickly customize and collect your data and integrate it into your existing Material Requirements Planning (MRP) process.
The Windows™ CE-based Zebra handheld reader (MC9190Z) is a central component of OPI’s RFID solution. With eTrack software, the user interface is remarkably easy and intuitive, mimicking a cell phone with its touch screen. Point, click and follow the screen instructions.
When raw materials arrive at your receiving dock, all critical data can be incorporated into OPI’s RFID system,
including reading labels to placing materials into inventory to counting and verification. You’ll know exactly what
inventory you have on hand for a particular product. This reduces stock levels and operating costs, while eliminating
items sitting around not being used. This will also improve the speed and accuracy of asset tracking and ensure fewer
errors throughout the entire assembly process.
Strong Inventory Control
OPI’s RFID solution with eTrack software delivers powerful component tracking and inventory control capabilities
that help manufacturers maintain a critically important inventory balance.
eTrack Search Mode
Another valuable component of OPI’s solution is the eTrack Search Mode. A single item or group of items and the associated RFID numbers can be selected for a SEARCH when a specific device or part is required. In SEARCH MODE all other RFID tags are ignored while scanning for the required items!
eTrack Tag Filtering
This feature will search for a subset of inventory by specifying a required prefix, suffix or common data string. Response time and production will also improve when undesirable or unnecessary tags are filtered out.
eTrack P.O.C. Bundle
Your solution can include an assortment of RFID Tags, along with eTrack software and devices, to provide an inexpensive P.O.C. (Proof-of-Concept) tool for the design and testing of your RFID data collection system. All tags included in this bundle are passive Gen 2, Rev 2 compatible, and are selected to offer different read characteristics when applied to various materials such as corrugated, glass, metal or plastics.
Workforce Tracking with RFID
RFID PERSONNEL TRACKING SOLUTIONS FOR MANUFACTURING
By incorporating an RFID tag, with a unique identifier, into each employee ID Badge you can have complete control over access to certain areas and know exactly where personnel are at all times. In the event of an emergency evacuation or accident, you can easily make sure buildings or areas are clear and that everyone is safe. You can also set up alerts to let you know if any staff member comes within a certain proximity of unsafe areas. In areas where valuable, sensitive or hazardous raw materials or components are stored, you can effortlessly keep a detailed log of who has accessed those areas and when.
