Oilfield Equipment Manufacturer Tracks Production With RFID

Tejas Tubular Products, a provider of drill pipes and other products and services to the oil industry, is employing RFID technology to help track production, validate quality and boost efficiencies in its manufacturing operations.
Montreal-based Ship2Save implemented the system, which went live last month at the company's Houston plant. The system incorporates 915 MHz EPC Class 1 Gen2 passive RFID tags and interrogators, as well as Ship2Save's Operation Management System (S2S-OMS) middleware, designed to manage the RFID hardware and share RFID data with back-end systems, such as Tejas Tubular Products' material requirements planning system.
