Coffee and tea processing organizations are responsible for the physical development and packaging of food and beverage products that go out to not only Canada and the United States but to the world. This multi-billion dollar international industry has depended on traditional warehouse management techniques for a long period of time. This dependency has resulted in inefficiencies in production and loss of inventory among other problems that have come to an industry that has had difficulty adapting to a new marketplace filled with new technologies.
GAO RFID Systems offers coffee and tea manufacturers with the technology they need to improve internal manufacturing efficiencies:
- Manage input and output via the tagging of inventory and assets
- Significantly reduce equipment downtime
- Gain more access to what’s going on in your supply chain
Our RFID Systems are ideal for coffee and tea manufacturing as there is a high turnover of product and there are multiple collection points upon which product is distributed. GAO RFID can work to identify problematic areas in your supply chain and has been known to play a critical role in reducing shrinkage while improving the bottom line.
Using GAO RFID Systems in the Coffee and Tea Manufacturing Industry
There’s no more efficient way to track a piece of product, equipment, or process than with our suite of RFID Systems. With the manufacturing landscape becoming more and more competitive, production managers are increasingly tasked with the need to increase productivity while keeping costs to a minimum. RFID technology can help:
Automate the complex and labour-intensive inventory management process thereby promoting lean manufacturing. Our Asset Tracking System will tag product, inventory, and assets as needed to always ensure an accurate count and the ability to locate its precise location anywhere on the production floor. Through the use of RFID Tags, you can get better visibility over inventory and know exactly what you have and what you need; truly making your operations more efficient.
Set up Equipment Maintenance
Through our Asset Tracking System, a repair and maintenance schedule for your manufacturing equipment can be recorded onto each RFID Tag. As parts are removed and refurbished, it’s of utmost importance that this information is carefully recorded. The data collected from maintenance conducted or transfer of parts are all stored on the database so that maintenance engineers can achieve greater efficiency throughout the warehouse.
Ensuring Security of Products
As millions of dollars of product is being moved through a coffee and tea manufacturing plant every day, it’s important that this inventory gets to its destination without incidence of theft. Using our Asset Tracking System you can track each item or pallet as it moves from your production facility to distribution warehouses and finally the customer’s receiving dock. The ability to track the status and location of every shipment and confirm secure landing at its intended destination means added security to your business.
Higher Manufacturing Performance
Through the sheer amount of data being collected via our RFID Systems, a business owner now has more information than they’ve ever had before to assist them in running their business effectively. Identify inefficiencies in production and take the necessary corrective action to ultimately bring about significant cost savings via RFID.
