RFID Systems for Pharmaceutical & Medicine Manufacturing

Pharmaceutical and medicine manufacturing companies from Canada and the U.S. have had a large economic impact in the world. Your organization is the foundation on which medical practitioners and people depend on for their drug-related cures. That your organization needs to be counterfeit free, protected from theft and contamination cannot be stressed enough. You are also privy to routine checks by the FDA or other health and drug administration. In order to function at an optimal level, your organization faces a myriad of challenges during the manufacturing process, which include, but are not limited to:

  • Maintaining and Managing Data Logs
  • Drug tracking and inventory
  • Update and manage maintenance of warehouse equipment
  • Controlling access to high-risk and sensitive materials

Thus, as a pharmaceutical manufacturing company, you are primarily looking for ways to make your manufacturing process more efficient and secure. GAO RFID solutions can help your organization to track, manage inventory even at the individual package level, maintain and regularly update staff about maintenance needs in the warehouse.

Using GAO RFID Systems in the Pharmaceutical & Medicine Manufacturing Industry

In conjunction with increasing productivity and speed of delivery to your clients, you are also looking to eliminate as much human error as possible in the delicate ongoing of creating and delivering the drugs or medications. Thus, create a more efficient working environment. GAO’s RFID Systems aid you to optimize your organization’s daily functioning, by providing solutions that help you in:

Managing and Maintaining Inventory and Data Logs

Inventory checks and manageable data logs go hand-in-hand to guarantee optimal functioning in your organization. From the individual ingredients of the drugs to the packaging, labelling and tracking the shipment to the final destination are all important parts of your company’s success. In order to aid in managing and maintaining the inventory and data logs related to the inventory, GAO’s RFID Tags can be used to provide full visibility of location and utilization in real-time. Since the operation is fully automated there can never be a backlog of data input, giving your organization the ability to keep moving swiftly through all orders. As automated operation means that you are able to quickly and effectively identify and locate assets, calculate usage, as well as stay informed of inventory depletion.

Controlling Access and Security Alerts in High-Risk Areas

 Alongside contamination and possible theft of materials, it is vital that your manufacturing plant itself is protected from outside intrusion. In order to do so, GAO’s RFID Access Control System can provide you with a way of conveniently and securely controlling access to zones throughout your plant. Your employees are assigned RFID Badges that enable key-less and hands-free access to areas throughout the organization. The RFID badges can also aid in identifying and tracking personnel in case of emergencies, and all access activity can be reviewed via reports generated by our web-enabled software.

Maintaining Equipment Efficiency

Another important aspect of your pharmaceutical and medicine manufacturing business is the need to ensure all production machines are in top working order. Forgetting to service a machine or losing its entire service history can mean big problems for the production line. Through our RFID Asset Tracking System, you can assign RFID Tags to each and every machine. Each tag carries the equipment’s specific information including make, model, position, and maintenance records. When an upcoming service is due, the system will automatically alert managers so that appointments can be coordinated proactively to ensure proper and timely servicing of all machines—this results in a production facility that has a 100% uptime.
