Production Flow – tracking in realtime
A power tool manufacturer wanted operational visibility to increase the manufacturing efficiency.
The company deployed RFID tags to track material movement and integrate with the machines’ PLC to monitor quality, line productivity and yield. This allows visibility at every step of the production process, giving them the ability to adjust process feed, speed and monitor labor productivity.
Impact on the shopfloor demonstrated through a 10% increase in labor efficiency, increase in resource utilisation from 80% to 90% and reduced first pass defects by 16%.
