Improving Manufacturing Efficiency

Planning, evaluation, and scheduling can all be greatly improved when you have data to base them on, but capturing all this data can be both costly and time consuming. Inaccurate employee reporting and infrequent data capture rates can be frustrating and defeat the purpose.

To overcome these issues and get the data you want, you need to automate the data collection. Data entry appliances, barcode scanners, and RFID readers can greatly reduce the cost and time involved in data capture. RFID completely automates the process and even eliminates the need for human intervention – meaning no person needs to remember to capture the data, it happens automatically!
