The manufacturing and processing of frozen food is a multi-billion dollar industry in Canada and the U.S. To be able to compete with the many competitors around the world, this takes the knowledge to be able to maximize operational efficiency, reduce costs, and ensure that your organization is putting its best foot forward.
GAO RFID Systems for the Frozen Food Manufacturing industry assists oraganizations in these key areas to do business more effectively:
- Tagging and thereby protecting inventory and stock from theft
- Maintaining accurate tags on assets as they undergo processing in your supply chain
- Allowing you to collect data on the maintenance and repairs of heavy equipment as needed
- Eliminate lag times among processes and reduce cycle times for streamlined product movement
- Secure your premises
Radio frequency identification technology (RFID) is a revolutionary enabler of automated data capture that is especially beneficial to the manufacturing industry. The use of RFID technology is a vehicle to achieve leaner manufacturing through automated data collection, assurance of data dependencies, and greater inventory visibility.
Using GAO RFID Systems in the Frozen Food Manufacturing Industry
With GAO’s RFID Systems, you will notice a reduction in product and process errors. As the industry landscape gets increasingly competitive, plant managers are required to find new ways to make production more efficient while being cautious of keeping costs low. Designed for ease of use and adaptable to numerous situations, our RFID Systems provide the benefits listed below:
Analyze Supply Chain Processes
Overseeing the movement of a tagged asset as it undergoes processing in your supply chain allows you to obtain data related to the efficiency of this operation. Real-time data pulled from uniquely identified products allows you to reduce the amount of human supervision or human intervention needed to monitor these operations. Easily determine location, condition, and history of a designated piece of product anywhere in your supply chain. This gives you unparalleled visibility an enables you to make important inventory decisions that keep your operations lean.
Maintain Security at All Times
The advantages of real-time data accessible at any time of day allows you supervision over your property unlike ever before. Security can be upheld effectively through a) implanting RFID Tags on existing equipment and machinery, and b) ensuring that your employees are adequately tracked with RFID traceable identification cards. Our Asset Tracking and Personnel Tracking Systems ensure that you are notified if there ever is removal of property or an authorized attempt at accessing your facility.
Manage a Equipment Maintenance Schedules
Our Asset Tracking System automatically notifies you when your equipment is in need of maintenance. This will reduce the amount of human intervention needed as well as the time spent on paperwork that can now be spent elsewhere and ultimately keep your equipment running and ensure production uptime. In addition, every time service is performed, the history is recorded onto the RFID Tag so that an electronic paper trail follows the equipment so that it is clear what work has been done to each equipment and reduces duplicate fixes and streamlines troubleshooting.
