In an industry first in the UK, Paragon has optimized internal processes with RFID

riving efficiency with RFID: UK-based Paragon Automotive wanted to increase the visibility within the automotive supply chain while gaining control over the internal processes at the same time. A passive UHF-RFID-Solution not only enhanced speed and accuracy across the entire supply chain, but also laid the foundation for a glass pipeline between manufacturer, logistics provider, and dealer. Chris Higgins, Group IT Director Paragon Automotive, speaks with “RFID im Blick Global” about the reasons for turning to RFID. He not only focuses on the tagging process, but also highlights the resulting benefits for both Paragon and its clients.

Tracking of dental instruments improves patient safety and improves hygiene

Hygiene, inventory accuracy, patient safety: medical facilities and hospitals have to follow many regulations regarding clinical practice and keep track of their medical equipment at the same time. The School of Oral Health Care at the University of Copenhagen counts on an RFID-based tracking solution to meet these requirements. Most instruments are tagged. Bo Danielsen from the University of Copenhagen talks to „RFID im Blick Global“ about the use and benefits of RFID for staff and patients alike.

Daimler uses RFID productively. Plans and projects for applying RFID to numerous other processes are currently being drafted.

Will the next step in series production succeed, and how can a cross-company RFID application be managed?

Positioning techniques, airbag assembly documentation, and RFID Kanban, in addition to the cross-OEM-supplier RFID project: the RFID experts at Daimler in Sindelfingen are busy thinking about numerous processes. The technical feasibility has been demonstrated recently in a proof of concept. The connection to existing backend systems as well as tests within a real production environment will follow. First applications have already been implemented. “The RFID technology has now reached a level of maturity where sustainable process benefits are now feasible,“ says Thomas Gintschel. At the same time, RFID know-how has become so widespread that it can be realistically determined in which processes RFID use is sensible, and in which other technologies should be favoured. Thomas Gintschel and Albert Kronmüller spoke with ‘RFID im Blick Global’ about the applications that are already in use, and whether the applications tested under real conditions are close to serial production.

Together with other partners, Turck Korea has implemented a complete system – from the production plant right through to the dispatch warehouse

Counterfeit pharmaceutical products present health authorities and competition regulators with a great number of problems. For this reason, in future the entire production and sales chain of pharmaceutical products will be made fully transparent. Together with other partners, Turck Korea introduced this process, known as serialization, for pharmaceutical manufacturer, Daewon Pharm Co. Ltd. The cloud-based solution records the drugs from the production stage right through to storage in the dispatch warehouse.

From Supply Chain Management to Supply Network

Data is the key to winning: the German automotive company Continental Automotive is focusing on their supply network concept to optimise their supply chain. Production steps are traced and cleanliness requirements are monitored through the use of RFID. An advantage of employing RFID tracking is that it is possible to have exact and up-to-date information about the availability of special transport units. Klaus-Jürgen Rossbach, of Continental Automotive, speaks about the benefits of RFID deployment in intralogistics processes with ‘RFID im Blick Global’.

Sterile supply in Berlin

RFID for item labelling is always a challenge when used in sterilisation. Has the Charité CFM Facility Management found the ultimate solution? This article shows how it can work.

Over a long period, the challenges loomed too large. It was essential to be able to trace all the instruments used in the Charité. It is currently still not possible using RFID. The time and the cost of master data entry, labelling over 300,000 instruments, are still compromising the benefits. In February 2016, however, a system for detecting special instruments at item level was successfully employed in real operation by the Charité CFM Facility Management. Is this a ground-breaking step? Sadmir Osmancevic and Stefan Preuss, in interview with ‘RFID im Blick’, report on how RFID processes can optimise sterilisation.

More Time for Customers Thanks to RFID

Only few weeks passed between the first consultations with the hardware, software, and integration partners Nedap and Infratek and the beginning of pilot tests in two stores. The simple RFID application – handheld, Ipods, and a cloud connection – quickly convinced Retail Director Hans Petter Hübert. Nine months after the first test, the fast stock taking solution was rolled out to all 14 stores. Speaking with “RFID im Blick Global”, the Retail Director says how easy it was from his perspective to gain benefi ts and reveals what further RFID application the fashion company is currently working on.

RFID-Tags in der Automobilproduktion

The newly developed Confidex Corona Tag is designed to provide a greater safeguard against failure for Volvo Cars while simultaneously decreasing investment costs

This is what automotive manufacturers demand from their technology suppliers: 100 percent security in all processes . A tag failure rate of 0.05% in a highly automated production environment is already enough reason to look for a better solution. In the case of Volvo Cars, the OEM is willing to work together with the RFID company Confi dex in search of a more reliable solution. After more than one and a half years of developmental work and thousands of tests in production, a new generation of UHF-RFID-Tags is waiting in the wings for the production for Volvo Cars in Sweden, Belgium, and China. Yvan Jacquet speaks about the key benefi ts of the new generation of tags with “RFID im Blick Global”.

A global Industry 4.0 strategy

Nokia Operations wants to set standards for smart products

Nothing less than a global standard which is easy to adapt – this is the objective for Nokias’ supply chain following the implementation of its carefully planned Industry 4.0 transition strategy. RFID technology takes a key role in this future concept. The experts in network infrastructure are certain that Industry 4.0 is only possible with a foundation of smart products. “RFID im Blick Global” talks with Claus Heller, Karl Kirschenhofer, and Jose Menendez about the steps that will bring added value to Nokia Operations and their customers. To achieve these ambitious goals, production processes demand more than one RFID label.

A new level of patient care and providing of OR status reports with UHF readers from Feig Electronic

At hospital, non-mobile in-patients spend most of their time in their rooms. An assignment to their patient files is easy, as long as they stay where they are. Out-patients, for example, getting chemotherapy in an Oncology Centre, or patients who need surgery, need to be clearly identified. Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre based in Toronto, Canada, uses RFID technology to safely identify patients, avoid confusion and to optimise management processes. In an interview with ‘RFID im Blick’ Ellie Lee, Manager OR Information Management Services, explains how RFID improves communication with members of the patients family.
