RFID Systems SIMATIC RF

Fiercer competition, stricter standards and legal regulations, shorter product life cycles, more individual customer requirements: companies must assert themselves in ever more dynamic markets. In addition, due to increasing globalization, more and more closed value added chains are reaching their limits and are being replaced by global networks. This also places greater demands on the supply chain. There is a demand for greater efficiency in tracking and tracing, asset management and production control.

The prerequisite for this is: maximum data transparency - with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification).

Automatic Yet Flexible: Production Control

Production control

  • Integrated solutions through the use of standards

  • Accessible mounting locations due to extended read/write ranges

  • Direct identification on the product


The Right Part in the Right Place at the Right Time: Material Flow Control

Material flow control

  • Optimized inventory management

  • Minimization of storage quantities

  • Automatic, synchronous feeding of parts or components


100% Traceability: Tracking & Tracing

Tracking & Tracing

  • Improved product quality

  • Focused after-sales support (e.g. product recalls)

  • Observation of legal regulations


Keeping an Overview: Asset Management

Asset Management

  • Increased rate of inventory turnover

  • Reduction of inventory and less need for
    replenishment

  • Increase of availability


Commanding Global Logistics: Supply Chain Management

Supply Chain Management
