Enhance Your Yard Management with RFID
With a lot of moving pieces, yards are complex environments. Understanding where assets are located on the yard is essential from a time and cost savings perspective. RFID technology can be used to attached RFID tags to assets and leverage RFID readers to collect the movement of assets throughout a yard.
How it works
1. Tag Items
RFID tags are attached to key assets. If the assets have a composition of metal, specialized on metal RFID tags may be used to improve the readability of the assets. These RFID tags are serialized so you’ll be able to uniquely identify each asset.
2. RFID Reader
As assets move from throughout the yard, use RFID readers to collect information. These readers can be attached with associated antennas in strategic areas where a high volume of assets typically move through. Examples includes gates and staging areas.
3. Asset Movements
With the collection of asset movement, create a trial of asset movement to understand where assets currently are located. In addition, use zonal technology to split up your yard in to logical zones to capture and associated asset positioning.
Use strategically placed RFID readers and antennas to collect the movement of the assets throughout a yard. Create logical mapping of where assets are located and cut down on efforts for searching for misplaced assets.
With the association of RFID tags on assets, understand the throughput and velocity of assets and inventory throughout your yard. With a simplified method of data collection, understand where process gaps may be and take correction action right away.
