Motor vehicle body, trailer, and part manufacturing facilities in Canada and the U.S. are primarily engaged in the production of complete motor vehicles, trailers and other vehicle accessories, and any other parts that are needed to produce motor vehicles (i.e. engines, brake systems, steering and suspension components, transmissions, etc.). Auto part suppliers and producers are required to produce parts that comply with safety and security standards of the law. They are subjected to a series of trying and difficult tasks daily, such as:
- Managing and maintaining delivery and pick up logs
- Checking and managing inventory
- Tracking shipments, equipment and deliveries
GAO RFID Systems can help your organization to automate these tasks so that you can stay competitive and relevant in the motor parts manufacturing industry.
Using GAO RFID Systems in the Motor Vehicle Body, Trailer & Parts Manufacturing Industry
GAO RFID Systems for motor vehicle body, trailer, and parts manufacturing organizations are designed to help your organization tackle a variety of daily challenges. As the industry gets more competitive, managers are being tasked with the requirement of improving the operations while keeping costs low. By employing RFID technology, manufacturers can accomplish the following:
Managing and Tracking Inventory
Your organization has numerous amounts of inventory and supplies that require location tracking and knowledge of the amount. These items can include valuables such as engines, brake systems, suspension components and more that require inventory checks on a daily or weekly basis. To have the amount and the location of the inventory readily at hand is vital to not just your organization’s optimal function, but also to your client’s satisfaction. RFID Tags allow you to tag and track the valuable inventory in your organization so that you can track items to see if they are lagging behind in the production line, or if they are lost or stolen; thereby greatly improving the inventory process.
Access Control to Allow Authorized Personnel Only
There are locations in your manufacturing plant that are high-risk or private. GAO RFID strongly believes that the security of your organization begins with the safety of your staff and visitors to your plant. The management of employees and visitors to areas that require authorization can be automated using our Access Control System and RFID Badges. With each employee and visitor given an RFID badge, managers can flexibly manage and automate how access to granted to each individual person. As access is gained and denied throughout the day, the system logs every event so that managers can review activity at any time.
Monitor Personnel for Safety and Efficiency
In order to best function in a working environment, it is vital that employees and staff are able to manage their time efficiently on-site. Assigning RFID badges to employees and administrative staff enables you to monitor the progression of your staff as they go through their daily activities. RFID Readers installed across your plant monitor how long each employee stays at different stations and map out their daily workflow. These badges also can be embedded with employee information so that time and attendance is automatically logged and integrated with an existing payroll system, making calculating payroll extremely simple.
