Inventory Control "Choke Points" Handled with Motorola RFID

Challenge: Like many modern manufacturers, our client faced constant pressure to improve the efficiency and accuracy of its resource handling to better control manufacturing costs. The client was looking for a way to streamline the tracking of parts from inventory to the factory floor.

Solution:  A complete parts tracking solution using automated RFID solution was implemented, including: Motorola advanced RFID hardware solutions incorporating the XR400 series of RFID readers and the AN series of industrial antennas at each portal; metal mount RFID tags attached to the tugs; a paper RFID 4" x 6" smart label attached to each tote; and System Concepts' TraxWare® Software Suite.

Results:  The client has already recognized that the solution installed at their plant has had a direct return on investment. Labor costs associated with inventory control are down significantly, as are inventory pick errors and mis-ships, and production lines receive timely and correct parts.

About the Solution Provider:  Motorola Solutions (Formerly Symbol Technologies Inc.) is the leading manufacturer of rugged data collection equipment used in warehouses, distribution centers, mobile field applications, retail centers, health care facilities and many other environments.
