Manufacturing and warehousing logistics require a lot of moving parts in order to work smoothly and efficiently. But sometimes, things get lost in the shuffle when trying to manage your people, inventory, and assets. By being able to monitor these aspects of your warehouse, you’ll be able to increase ROI. But how can you monitor all of these aspects of your warehouse? With a manufacturing real-time locating system.
Improve your warehouse’s operations with a manufacturing real-time location system. Enabling your operations team to have greater visibility into production, people and processes, will make your life easier.
Monitor People, Inventory, and Assets
The manufacturing real-time locating system allows you to assign tags to assets, inventory and even employees – tracking who is where, and for how long. This simple browser-based software allows you to create zones and location-based rules. Zones can be a specific area of the production floor even if there are not necessarily physical barriers around the space you define as a zone.
A manufacturing real-time locating system can also help you with the following:
- Create tracking to baseline and benchmark performance.
- Set up rules to trigger notifications if a key piece of equipment or tooling leaves a specified area.
- Understand where personnel are spending their time on the production floor.
- Monitor the movement of inventory over time to determine if processes are functioning as efficiently as possible.
- Use staff safety badges for employees working in remote or especially hazardous areas of a building to ensure the fastest response in the event of an emergency.
- Create rules for certain inventory items with a shelf life that sit idly in the same location for too long.
Reduce the Number of Lost Items
When vital equipment cannot be located, it must be classified as lost or stolen with the remaining value of the asset written off and the need to spend additional funds to either purchase or rent a replacement unit. Through the use of asset tags, facilities can significantly reduce the number of lost, stolen or missing items by tracking the location of each asset and sending alerts when they are about to be removed from the facility.
The data gathered with a manufacturing real-time locating system in a warehouse environment is extremely valuable, and can significantly improve overall operational efficiency, making for an extremely fast ROI. Contact Secure Care to learn more about how to increase your warehouse’s ROI.
