Identification and Location Tracking of Products



Our client, a significant seamless tube manufacturing steel company, presented us with their issue of inefficiencies in their product processing, associated with losses and confusion caused by the absence or incorrect identification of the products.
The tubes were stored in warehouses or uncovered yards, exposed to various environmental factors as they went through their manufacturing process. Therefore, any solution needed to consider these environmental requirements.


The proposed solution involved the use of RFID tags, devices designed to withstand the environmental conditions of the uncovered yards, and they also allow for the storage and updating of information as the product goes through various stages of the process, without the need for replacement during the transformation into the final product.
Each of the RFID tags not only contains digitally recorded information but also has basic, unchanging information printed in QR code format. This means that the information can be read by RFID readers and transceivers, as well as by any QR code reader device, providing great versatility for tracking and traceability of each product.
The solution enables the tracking of stock positions for the pieces: location, inventory, reservations, and more. It allows for the checking of pending reception orders and the input of received quantities. Additionally, it supports inventory counting tasks in all phases (initial counting and difference counting), material withdrawals from dispatch based on reservations or other reasons, and material relocations.


The implementation of this solution successfully achieved the desired level of control, positively impacting the reduction of times for product identification in warehouses. It also led to a significant improvement in the traceability of product movement and distribution, all the way to the final delivery to the customer.
