AutoID / RFID

RFID data exchange via cloud services

Data collected at AutoID stations such as RFID gates and associated information ( e.g. machine data, terminal entries, etc. ) are stored in a cloud storage and can be accessed and processed by any third-party application. The storage is platform-independent, for example in XML or CSV format.

This allows data to be made available beyond the company's own location to other locations or to third-party companies. This simplifies and optimizes the production and logistics processes between suppliers or parts of the company. Accordingly, a supply chain is realized as part of the supply chain management across plant or company boundaries.

For the flow of materials, a correspondingly appropriate flow of information and data is thus guaranteed. For example, goods that were created and sent at location 1 can be directly assigned to a data record after identification at the goods-in of location 2.

Advantages of data distribution via cloud services

  • Provision of relevant AutoID, product, load carrier or delivery data for locations / companies without GRAIDWARE ® installation
  • Data for an Auto ID object does not have to be newly created / managed at the target location
  • Comfortable data provision
  • High flexibility through open file formats
  • High degree of process automation
  • Implementation of interfaces not absolutely necessary

 

Examples of use

  • Support of supply chain / logistics chain, supply chain management
  • Data delivery from company sites, customers or subcontractors
  • Monitoring of consignment stores

 

Functions

  • Transfer of Auto ID data, such as RFID identification numbers ( e.g. UID or EPC ) and related information ( e.g. process parameters, machine data, manual terminal entries ) between one or more GRAIDWARE ® installations and any other application at another location
  • Configuration of a trigger process, e.g. for production completion or RFID dispatch gate for data provision
  • Data storage in a cloud storage
