Leveraging Technology for Manufacturing Traceability
7. February 2013
Manufacturing has become more global, government regulations and reporting requirements have increased, and consumers are more cost- and quality-conscience than ever. These are some of the reasons why traceability throughout manufacturing processes has become so important, and why so many manufacturers have established formal traceability programs.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and barcode technologies are two tools that manufacturers can leverage to establish an effective traceability program. That’s because they provide direct visibility into the manufacturing process while streamlining data collection and communication. A free white paper from Balluff, which has 25 years experience in developing RFID equipment and systems, explains where these tools have had the greatest impact in terms of establishing effective traceability programs.
