By using a cross-plant RFID solution, the current location as well as incoming and outgoing goods postings of products and batches can be displayed transparently. This allows complete traceability. In manufacturing plants, raw parts are marked with unique RFID tags and managed in the ERP system. This allows parts or product carriers to be identified and tracked throughout the entire production and logistics process. The corresponding statistical and quality parameters for production can also be recorded and evaluated.
If produced parts are delivered to another third-party location for final assembly, they are recorded there at an RFID-based goods receipt gate and posted in the ERP system. The intelligent AutoID / RFID middleware GRAIDWARE ® developed by SIGMA Chemnitz GmbH plays an important role as a data hub. Signals and data from the RFID process are determined, checked for plausibility, false and external signals are filtered out and the data is statistically (visualization / reporting) evaluated. Thus, incorrect data, which are caused by a possible interference of unwanted or implausible external signals, can be eliminated.
