INDUSTRY: AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY
CHALLENGE: AUTOMATING THE WORK IN PROCESS CONTROL & MONITORING BOARD
SOLUTION: INSTALLATION OF RFID SYSTEM WITH SCADA FOR WIP TRACKING
This project is designed to monitor the real time status of every work-in-progress (WIP) vehicle units in the whole production line. The RFID system identifies each passing WIP through attached RFID tag on each unit using RFID readers installed in every entrance and exit of all process areas.
The SCADA replaced the conventional manual monitoring board, plots all the RFID data into user-friendly graphical form for easy use by plant operators. All data is logged in SQL database for recording. The SCADA generates reports, events and alarms that is automatically sent to the selected persons via e-mail. Collected/stored data is made available to the whole plant.
