RFID Kanban System
Automate Your Inventory Management with RFID Enabled Bins
Many businesses take advantage of a two or three bin Kanban system for streaming inventory management. Although this time tested process is valuable for improving inventory management, it still includes a manual step of cross verifying which bins are empty. By attaching an RFID tag onto bins and adopting a dedicated RFID Kanban cage or strategically placing RFID antennas on to a portion or area of the bins storage, that business workflow can be automated.
How it works
1. Tag Kanban Bin
RFID Tags are attached to your Kanban bins. A great choice is the TagMatiks PET Labels. These labels can be pre-printed and pre-encoded, providing further simplicity to your RFID solution.
2. RFID Reader
Take advantage of an RFID structure / enclosure or allocate a dedicated empty bin storage area. As bins are empty, users are instructed to place them into these smart areas. The RFID readers associated to these areas automatically collect which bins are empty.
3. Data Collection
Streamline Data Collection – as these empty bins are collected, automatically recognize re-ordering of inventory.
Use the intelligent data provides by RFID to quickly and accurately procure inventory as soon as it is consumed. As each bin is tagged with a unique RFID tag, associate that bin number to your inventory part numbers for simplified ordering.
Par Level Management
Understand which bins are being consumed in a timely fashion to streamline minimum and maximum quantities of inventory. For excess inventory, have solidified data to demonstrate turn rates and take appropriate business action.
Eliminate manual verification of empty bins
