Case: Thai Beverage Can Phase I

CHALLENGE: AUTOMATE TRUCK TRACKING

Thai Beverage Can PLC (TBC) would like to improve its truck tracking operation.  When the truck enters the site, TBC would like to know truck status upon arrival so that the further processes such as loading or etc can be prepared in advance.  TBC also would like this process to be done automatically. 

SOLUTION

To improve this operation, TBC needs a tool to automate truck tracking operation which is RFID technology. Each truck is tagged with an industrial passive RFID tag.  The tags are read automatically with the RFID reader located at the entrance and exit.  After reading by the readers, the truck information is forwarded to data base application for further process.  The staff at the warehouse will be informed for the truck arrival so that they can prepare the loading in advance. 

With the RFID solution, TBC is able to increase fleet visibility and improve his warehouse loading operation.  By monitoring, TBC is also possible to gain important data about fleet operation. 

RESULTS

  • Give real time information about the fleet arrival and exit without human input
  • Improve loading operation
  • Information is digitalized in measurable format, while makes it possible to monitor and improve operation.

Case: CPRAM Co., Ltd

CHALLENGE: AUTOMATE VEHICLE ENTRANCE

CPRAM Co., Ltd would like to improve its vehicle entrance and exit operation.  The key objective of this implementation is to eliminate the data entry and the process to authorize the vehicle to enter the site. The company aims to the increase the efficiency on the parking lot inside its site.

SOLUTION

Identify RFID Fleet Visibility solution is selected to be used to meet the objectives.  Each vehicle is tagged with outdoor RFID label.  The tag is read automatically with the reader located at the entrance and exit.  After reading, the vehicle information is forwarded to our software application.  If the vehicle is authorized to enter the site, the barrier gate will be opened automatically and forward its information into the center data base for further process.  Allowing on the authorized one, it can enhance the parking lot management.  It can ensure that ensure that the authorized one always has the parking space

RESULTS

  • Give real time information about the vehicle arrival and exit without human input
  • Improve parking lot management
  • Information is digitalized in measurable format, while makes it possible to monitor and improve operation.

CASE: Hongsa Power PHASE II

CHALLENGE: AUTOMATE TRUCK UNLOADING ON CRUSHER MACHINE

Hongsa which is a leading power plant in Laos aims to improve its crusher operation.  Currently, the process of recording the truck which unloads soil at the crusher operates manually.  Hongsa needs to improve this process to be done without human intervention in order to get the correct information in the real time manner.

SOLUTION

Identify RFID Fleet Visibility solution is selected to be used to meet the objectives.  Each truck is tagged with outdoor RFID tag.  Since there are two unloading bay for one crusher, one reader with two antennas is installed at the crusher office.  When the truck is moved to the bay, the tag is read automatically with the reader on the crusher station.  Upon reading the tag, the truck information and its loading ID will be sent to the crusher office with Identify software.  The company is able to know the exact number of truck and its plate number which is unload soil on the crusher in real time manner, no need to wait for manual report as before.  This information will be used to evaluate the truck performance and business planning to increase crushing ability. 

RESULTS

  • Give better visibility on truck unloading
  • Eliminate human operation particularly the manual data entry
  • The information of truck unloading soil to crusher machine is digitalized in measurable format, while makes it possible to monitor and improve operation.

Case: Hong Sa Power Phase I

CHALLENGE: AUTOMATE WEIGHTING

Hong Sa Power would like to improve its truck weight operation.  When the truck enters the weight bridge, Hong Sa would like to automate its weighting process and would like to know the quantity of weighted coal in real time manner.

SOLUTION

To improve this operation, Hong Sa decides to employ RFID technology. Each truck is tagged with an industrial passive RFID tag.  The tags are read automatically with the reader located at the weight bridge.  After reading by the readers, the truck information and its weight is displayed on the weight scale program and is forward to data base application.  The staff at the back end will be able to know the weight of coal in real time.  With the RFID solution, Hong Sa can eliminate the human operation on the weight scale and has better visibility on the quantity of coal.

RESULTS

  • Give real time information about the quantity of coal
  • Eliminate human data entry
  • Weight Information is digitalized in measurable format, while makes it possible to monitor and improve operation.

Case: Home Pro PLC

Home Pro PLC which is one of the largest household items retailers would like to improve its logistics management and increase the visibility of its trailer.  Currently the company does not have any effective technology to automatically manage its trailer. 

SOLUTION

Passive RFID technology is selected to be used to meet the objectives. Each truck and its trailer are tagged with outdoor RFID tags.  The readers are installed at the key strategic station including entrance, loading bay, weight station and exit.  The tags are read automatically with the readers located at each station.  After reading by the reader, the truck information is forward to data base application.  Staff at the warehouse will be able to prepare loading operation in advance when the truck enters the factory.  With the readers at the each loading bay, warehouse staff is able to increase the utilization of loading bay.  Any loading bay which is not used will be automatically appeared on the control room.  Staff can assign the available trailer to do loading on that bay, unlike before which needs to have someone to walk to the DC to see which loading is unoccupied.  Besides eliminating some manual operation, the truck information is automatically recorded into the system.  The staff can use this information to set the KPI of each operation.  In addition, the company is able to know the number of the trailers which is used and which is not in used.  This information will be used for further business planning on the trailer utilization.

RESULTS

  • Give better visibility on trailer
  • Eliminate human operation such as data entry or etc.
