Mobile Barcoding for Manufacturing
Leap in front of your competitors in the era of digital manufacturing. Leverage mobile barcoding to replace obsolete manual processes and drive down costs with fast, efficient, and accurate materials management that also enhances quality. Create end-to-end visibility and control over inventory in supply, production, and delivery with the power of barcode automation.
Why Mobile Barcoding for Manufacturing
Reduce the cost of goods. Increase profits.
Today’s manufacturers must manage complex life cycles at rapid speed with pinpoint precision amid fierce competition at minimum cost—while maintaining the highest level of quality and customer service. Accurate, efficient control over materials is essential to minimize the cost of production and increase razor-thin profit margins. RFgen digital manufacturing solutions automate shop floor data collection to optimize efficiency and spend for materials management with paperless automation and mobile barcoding.

Shop Floor/Warehouse Inventory Control
Paperless mobile inventory and cycle counting with real-time digital records using mobile barcode scanners, phones, and tablets:
- Manage materials from inputs to outputs with AIDC barcodes, including raw material receipts, purchasing, WIP consumptions, put-away, pick/pack/ship for finished goods
- Extend to field services and maintenance, such as delivery confirmation, work orders and MRO spare parts
- Advanced control with palletizing, kitting, lot tracking, serializations, sub-assemblies and parent-child relationships, component calibration, and license plating
- Reduce excess overstock, labor time, scrap, consumption, waste or loss, and stock-outs
- Gain FDA traceability compliance for new food regulations through automated lot, serial, and batch tracking systems.
Enhance Quality at Lower Cost
Manufacturing automation ensures continuous flow of materials while enhancing quality control:
- Enforce quality inspections in receipts that flag questionable parts or blacklisted materials
- Enable quantity checks in between manufacturing steps to ensure quality, accuracy, and shorter processing time
- Ensure consistency and quality through product lifecycles for process, discrete, and Kanban manufacturing workflows
- End-to-end traceability compliance for raw materials, components, and finished goods—collect or share with a barcode scan
Fixed Asset Tracking
Simplify fixed asset tracking and plant maintenance without buying a separate EAM solution:
- Locate missing, stolen, or misplaced assets in real time
- Reduce wasted spend from lost assets and maintenance delays
- Minimize unplanned asset downtime with mobile asset inspection
- Optimize asset utilization
- Check-in/check-out and issue to project
Mobile Work Order Management
Mobile work order management equips personnel with critical information on-demand using mobile devices:
- Automate work order tasks for production, maintenance/repair and field services
- Track work order progress and ensure on-time completion
- Optimize diagnostics and work order resolution
- Reduce labor costs, backlogs and delays from missing parts
- Monitor efficiencies to enable continuous process improvement
Open Source Mobile Apps for Manufacturing
Support mobile enablement for the modern workforce with RFgen mobile apps for manufacturing:
- Pre-built mobile app templates for common supply chain activities and manufacturing workflows
