RFID Aids Cabinet Maker in Prioritizing Manufacturing

Custom wood product manufacturer Northway Industries, based in Middleburg, Pa., is using an RFID system to track the progress of its cabinets and other products as they are being manufactured. The system helps Northway track the location of an order's paperwork, enabling the company to view which stage the order has reached at any given time.
With this information, says Donald O'Hora, Northway's president and CEO, the cabinetmaker can better identify delays, prioritize manufacturing and provide information to customers. According to O'Hora, this will provide "a real-time, seamless update of work center progress without manual data collection."
