RFID Systems for Dairy Product Manufacturing

There are a wide variety of family-owned and corporate-owned dairy product manufacturing plants throughout Canada and the United States. The primary goal of each of these is to uphold their expected performance standards – if possible, to exceed it – and to turn a profit. Radio frequency identification tags give a business owner the opportunity to improve upon existing processes in dairy product manufacturing. Mixing tradition with innovation makes for a winning combination for dairy product manufacturers.

GAO’s RFID Systems for dairy product manufacturing assists dairy farmers in tackling the common challenges that they face every day including but not limited to:

  • Automate a schedule for equipment maintenance and repair as needed
  • Tag inventory and assets
  • Gain greater visibility over supply chain management
  • Automate data collection to eliminate the possibility of human errors in documentation
  • Secure the premises

There are examples from around the world of dairy product manufacturing companies using RFID technology to better their operations. An automated solution for monitoring assets, products, and processes is what RFID can help with. RFID technology has found uses in a variety of manufacturing related applications in production automation and inventory management.

Using GAO RFID Systems in the Dairy Product Manufacturing Industry

To professionals in the dairy product manufacturing industry, it’s of utmost importance to ensure that resources are used effectively, that processes are efficient, and that the end-day results meets or exceeds expectation. GAO RFID Systems ensure this through the application of up-to-date technology to transmit a variety of data wirelessly without the need human intervention—thereby reducing the chance for errors dramatically.

Automate an Equipment Maintenance Schedule

The GAO RFID Asset Tracking System can be used to track equipment maintenance schedules and send out alerts when a piece of machinery is in need of service. Typically, when a piece of equipment undergoes maintenance, there’s a wide range of paperwork required to document what was replaced and the work done. This information will now be automatically gathered thereby reducing time and effort spent on these traditionally manual tasks. Keeping your equipment fully maintained and creating a paperless history makes equipment management an efficient process in your facility.

Analyze Supply Chain Efficiency

The use of RFID Tags can be applied to specific pieces of inventory to track its location as it undergoes manufacturing and processing. Our RFID WIP Tracking System utilizes helps to analyze the time efficiency of your supply chain and to ensure that performances are up to standard. Items in production will be automatically tagged with RFID Tags and then can monitored throughout manufacturing processes to provide you with 100% visibility of your supply chain efficiency.

Secure the Premises of your Manufacturing Facility

In the past, many corporately-owned manufacturing facilities have used traditional security methods to guard against theft and unauthorized access to their property. These would include CCTV surveillance and employee access cards founded on barcoding technology. The GAO RFID Access Control System offers RFID tags that do not require scanning thereby making exit/entry simple. In addition, should your facility experience a break-in on off-hours, the system will automatically send a notification to you in real-time alerting you of suspicious activity. Every event is logged onto our database and allows managers and security personnel the freedom to review reports in case of need.
