- Utilizing IoT Technologies to Improve Workflow
Manufacturers around the globe are currently using RFID to improve material flow management, manage assets and increase inventory accuracy. By tagging assets, work-in-process materials and returnable transport items, companies are able to obtain the process visibility they need to track production flow in real time and thereby identify bottlenecks to improve counts and cycle times. The next generation of RFID for manufacturing includes new technologies facilitated by the Internet of Things that can be used not only to track items and count inventories, but also to provide enhanced visibility and real-time process control.
