A railway company that operates passenger and freight trains throughout Hong Kong has boosted the accuracy and efficiency of data capture related to the maintenance of its passenger cars and locomotives, thanks to the use of active RFID tags and readers. The technology automatically captures components’ locations, as well as the servicing of each part received. By knowing this information, the firm can better manage its fleet of passenger cars and locomotives, and be sure that all parts are in working order. Not only is less labor required to conduct inventory checks, but the data regarding parts’ locations is more accurate and thorough.
