RFID Tracking System for Manufacturing
RFID in Manufacturing Industries – How Does it Work?
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) offers a multitude of benefits for the manufacturing industries. It plays an important role in Industry 4.0. Manufacturing industries can boost their efficiency using the RFID system in every phase of manufacturing. When proper use of RFID in place, customers can eliminate error-prone manual data processing and can automate the data collection.
RFID technology is an essential requirement for the manufacturing facilities as it offers several advantages to the automotive industry. Few of the use case solutions of RFID as follows:
- Material Tracking from stores to assembly lines
- Spares/Component tagging with UHF RFID
- Process Tracking on each assembly line
- Employees performance monitoring
- Tagging of the main components for material tracking
- Finished goods tracking between stages
- Material in-ward monitoring and staging allocation
- Trolley tracking within the manufacturing plant
- Container tracking between assembly lines
- In-ward truck management using RFID
- Dock management using UHF RFID
- Open Yard & truck parking space monitoring
Middleware – An Introduction
Middleware is a software that offers common services and capabilities to applications which is out of the provisions provided by the operating system. There are two levels for any device to communicate with other software. The first one is the OS, which is the first level software which provides management features of the device and its resources as we as controlling the device. The second level is the application designed to run on top of of the operating system. These applications expand the functions of the device offered by OEM using firmware or SDK. The middleware application sits between the operating system and device OS to enable the data collection process with the required business logic and algorithm.
RFID middleware engine is a radio-frequency identification, management software which positioned between the RFID reader and the enterprise application or database. There are many RFID reader manufacturers and each of them has their own firmware, software development kit, or APIs. These SDK provides ways to program and configure the readers based on the device’s functionality and parameters. These manufacturers have different types of readers and upgrading or introducing RFID readers with new functionalities. HexaRFID software tracks these changes and updates the middleware engine. Hence, you will have a play & play RFID system. You can start using RFID data with your business applications
HexaRFID Software Basic Edition offers entry-level RFID tracking for business use cases such as RFID based employee attendance, material inventory tracking, and asset tracking. Customers opt for the basic edition can start using the software immediately without any hassles. We provide options to transfer the data directly to your application URL or database. Call us more more details
This version of the software provides more sophisticated features to the client. Customers can use any number of readers in this version. Device management is part of this solution as a customer can manage all the readers and antenna from one application. This also included zones and sub-zone creation and allocation of reader and antenna for the same.
This version of the RFID software allows an organization to have a customized algorithm as per the business use case requirement. Every business is not same. Hence, if a customer requires business logic implementation and behavior of RFID readers with a different perspective are the possibilities in this edition. We will work closely with customers in this version.
