This Millennium’s Automotive manufacturers are the most; high-tech, progressive, and lean manufacturers that the world has ever experienced. This is all accomplished through sourcing expertise, designs, tooling, raw material, assemblies, components and labor from every corner of the world.
Distributed production environments require Real-Time Information and Visibility. In today’s ever changing world this Real Time information and Visibility has to be flexible and able to adjust to the very fluid process environments that products are manufactured in today.
RFind is the perfectly designed location tool for today’s Global Automotive Business Model. RFind products can be deployed very quickly, and re-deployed / re-configured in a matter of hours. RFind systems have the lowest total cost per asset tracked of any product on the market, offering solutions that require little if any infrastructure in the covered location areas, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars on backend infrastructure cost.
Unlike current off-the-shelf location systems that adhere to the “You can have any color you want as long as it is Black” philosophy, RFind developed their products to uniquely suit Automotive manufacturing environments from inception:
Tightly packed metal-rich environments pose little problem to RFind’s wireless communications and the outstanding performance (read) range means you can deploy in the most constrictive factories and yards.
High ‘noise’ environments – both Environmental and RF – are trouble free, as RFind uses 902-928Mhz in North America and 865 to 869Mhz in Europe – designated active RFID bands; RFind operates far away from wireless phones, mobile networks, communication equipment and cranes and other operational equipment, insuring safety, non-interference, and a problem free deployment.
Ever changing line adjustments, production flow, or value stream changes can be done quicker than the physical equipment can be moved in the environment, offering complete RTLS flexibility and lasting value. Configuration changes made to the system are drag-and-drop simple, automatically resetting locations for continued trusted accuracy with quick changeability.
Suppliers present no problem or performance reduction. They can have visibility and access through standard web browser access.
Supporting daily operations by considering that no two deployments are ever alike, we approach each solution simply and pragmatically. Our installations are readily accepted by the work force to maximize compliance and results.
Days to deploy, your ROI will be measured in months – not years. Long-term recurring return on your investment will be realized even when markets and processes change. Let RFind help you build more automotive products with reduced inventory levels, increased efficiencies, reduced labor, to increase your bottom line today!
Right Part, Right Place, Right Time, your processes can be in total compliance!
Total visibility of inventory in real-time gives your operation the critical information to act on to manage operations flow with inventory on hand, keeping inventory levels under control and balanced with production volume. Value Chain Balance data pays off with lower overall on-hand inventory requirements.
Automated Pull Triggers for parts replenishment, reduced man power, and errors in your systems for total control of you inventory flow to production.
Visibility to your production flow can be delivered in real-time. Operational Performance data gives you vital matrices to build data driven decisions and adjustments in a moment’s notice.
Specialized containers are a critical part of today’s production environments. Management of these mission critical tools is paramount to product flow. We keep control and seamless flow of these valued reusable assets.
Again Right Part, Right Place, Right Time, is part of your processes in total compliance. Real-Time and historical data also gives you supplier performance matrices, control, and alerts of potential problems before they halt operations resulting in expedited freight, increased costs and delays.
