In the automobile manufacturing and assembly industry, production and inventory management are the two most critical tasks that contribute to your success. Large volumes of parts need to be assembled, and proper sequencing is of the utmost importance. RFID can automate the process of managing inventory real-time and verify correct component assemblies. Through real-time visibility of inventory and finished goods, you can immediately begin realizing higher production output and increased quality.
Auto manufacturers around the world are beginning to realize the tremendous benefits of real-time systems utilizing RFID technologies. Here are just some of the benefits already being enjoyed today:
Track units in process to gain real-time visibility of the entire production system. Gain insight into valuable metrics that will help you drive greater efficiencies in your processes.
Completed Units Tracking
Rapid locating of specific completed bodies in inventory real-time. Minimize costs (both financial and in man-hours) of locating vehicles among vast inventories.
Accurately sequence parts to specific models to reduce incompatible part installation on vehicles.
Most recalls are initiated by suppliers. By accurately associating unique parts with specific completed bodies, thus directly identifying suspect parts, bulk vehicle recalls can be eliminated.
