Manufacturing Best Practices

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.

Manufacturing White Papers

  • Bar Codes Versus RFID for Work-in-Process Tracking
    Published January 2018
    This white paper, from BellHawk Systems, outlines when radio frequency identification and bar codes are each preferable to monitor WIP. With bar codes, a user must perform scanning, typically using a mobile computer equipped with an integrated bar-code scanner, whereas with RFID, scanning takes place automatically. BellHawk explores the merits of each type of tracking in manufacturing organizations, with an emphasis on the needs of organizations that make custom and semi-custom products. (5 pages)
