A global energy company is testing an RFID system from Australian firm Industrial Automation Group to track the locations of hundreds of thousands of assets at a major construction project in a remote region on the west coast of Australia, north of Karratha. At the site where the new refinery is being erected, tags are already being affixed to some of the hundreds of thousands of tools, materials and components that will be used during construction. Learn how the system enables the firm to see actual products moving, view where they were located and receive alerts if anything is not onsite when expected, or is located in the wrong place.
