RFID & Construction 

The Construction industry encompasses three broad sectors: residential, non-residential, and engineering. The latter sector includes the construction of water and sewer lines, oil and gas pipelines, power and communication lines, as well as streets and bridges.

Within every sector, the requirements of attaining cost optimization and supply chain efficiency while ensuring safety are the top priorities. Using GAO RFID’s suite of RFID solutions, managers will realize that these requirements are both achievable and sustainable.

Construction Industry Business Challenges: How RFID is the solution

If your organization builds residential homes, commercial buildings, natural gas pipelines, or are into heavy civil construction, you may face challenges that are typical in the Construction industry.

These challenges can be controlled and overcome by using RFID technology. Here are some examples:

Challenge 1: Managing Equipment

Every construction site requires a large inventory of equipment in order to complete the project successfully. Earthwork, concreting, and hoisting equipment, as well as IT assets are expensive and need to be tracked for efficient use and prevent loss. Moreover, the maintenance of all equipment needs to be conducted on schedule to ensure that they are ready for use when needed.

By using RFID, you can track heavy equipment and tool usage  and identify its locations under extreme conditions in real-time. 

Challenge 2: Managing Inventory

Since construction materials are a large portion of the total cost of construction projects, the management of materials at the inventory level are crucial for the success of any project. Tracking and locating materials in construction sites is a major concern; know exactly what you have on-site to avoid over ordering and accurately forecast when you need more materials to avoid construction delay. If the inventory of material resources is clearly known, cost overruns can be reduced, resulting in completed projects that are highly profitable.

Tagging construction materials with RFID tags allows you to track the items shipped to work sites and know when they are consumed.

Challenge 3: Managing Personnel & Time

In an environment where the job site has multiple personnel performing different tasks at different hours of the day, managing personnel tasks and monitoring the time used to complete these tasks provide a way to ensure productivity. In addition, when safety becomes a concern and muster calls are conducted, knowing who has reported to the assigned areas is crucial to maintain complete site safety.

By wearing RFID badges, personnel can be tracked and located across the jobsite to monitor job productivity and keep project sites safe. These badges also can be integrated with existing payroll systems to automate HR processes.

Challenge 4: Controlling Access

Most industrial job sites have many zones and require the operation of different heavy machinery. Keeping access to these zones secure and limiting the operation of machinery to only certified personnel is a daily priority for site managers.

RFID badges programmed to grant access to certain zones and allow only certified personnel the ability to operate specialized machinery keeps both personnel and job sites safe.
