How we proceed – partnership in RFID project integration
As a rule, track-and-trace projects in the context of IioT consists of appropriate RFID read/write devices, suitable data carriers, and the RFID middleware, as well as integration into your backend system.
Using your requirements as the starting point, we develop 360° IioT solutions for which we evaluate the current situation, take into account your OT and IT infrastructure and apply the right strategy, methodology and technology.
The first step is determining a location and objective for your identification project, which our specialists will perform on-site. Then follows the creation of a rough concept based on a feasibility study. This is accompanied by a budget offer for your internal approval.
Second, we construct a detailed specification of your processes, data flows and how IT is incorporated into the ERP system, along with the selection of the technology. Only when all the details have been clarified and the overall conception and architecture have been worked out (the specification book created) the third and last step of implementation and commissioning will follow.
Good to know: the project can be revalidated after each step. You pay only for the delivered results. This allows you to retain maximum flexibility throughout the project, while also reducing your risk to a minimum.
An overview of our solutions
UHF technology is especially useful for track-and-trace solutions in material tracking and digitizing production, as well as intralogistics processes. Typical applications include:
- Automatic registering of in- or outgoing goods
- Monitoring work progress and material consumption
- Automatic management of material requirement requests using e-kanban
- Tracking material flow
- Controlling machines and systems
- Equipping machines and systems in a targeted fashion
We master such applications using individualized concepts. In doing so we utilize the following RFID solutions:
- RFID gate
- RFID tunel
- RFID checkpoint
- Passive localization using UHF technology
