Bill of Materials Assurance

Challenges

    • Components and parts collected for assembly do not match the bill of materials.

Solutions

  • By RFID tagging all of the materials that make up a component, parts can be tracked throughout the manufacturing process. Items can be tracked either individually or as items in a tub, and can be checked at multiple points along the collection, assembly and manufacturing process. This assures that the bill of materials matches the components that have been collected for assembly and engaged in the manufacturing process.

Benefits

  • With 99%+ accuracy, RFID tagging not only cuts manpower required to assure accuracy of the bill of materials but also cuts the manpower required to make corrections when errors are found.
