How the company reduces its search efforts and enables cross-plant coordination.
Rehau lacked transparent insights into the position of transport drums and the material they contain. In addition, there was no interface to make information available to external suppliers.
With the help of real-time localization, Rehau keeps track of the transport drums as well as the material they contain across multiple production stages. Information on the material and the drums used is now recorded digitally.
The solution reduces search efforts for Rehau and enables cross-plant coordination. The company gains insight into product information from the manufacturing process and optimizes the disposition of drums based on their condition (full/empty).
