GN Advanced Traceability Technologies is the GN Techonomy solution that allows the traceability of the finished product path, linking the different technologies used in production chains, industrial systems that use automated machinery, in warehouse management, packaging process and logistics. In particular, it is optimal for all those processes where it is necessary to constantly monitor the status of the product. Therefore, GN ATT, through the integration of the information recorded on the Tags with the product codes, guarantees the continuity and correctness of the production flow, and ensures the accurate traceability of each product, up to packaging and transport.
For the use of this solution, in addition to the application software, the use of 2 tools is required:
It is an object available in various sizes depending on the needs, equipped with antenna and internal memory that can contain all the information related to the product and identify each piece uniquely. Combined with the product itself, or inserted inside the packaging, it allows, without the need for a direct view of the label, to read the information contained in the memory, using reading antennas. It therefore guarantees perfect product traceability throughout the entire logistics process. Each RFID tag has a code that is uniquely associated to an object and an active order on the management, allowing at any time to recover, for example, the article code, the operator who managed the process, the material used to build it and in what state of manufacture the product is. If the label of a product is damaged, the Tag will help by providing all the necessary information.
- RFID Antenna
By means of radio frequencies, this device detects and acquires all the information contained in the Tags. Through the connection with the ERP, the company has the possibility to monitor each product at every stage of the sales and distribution process. The inclusion of high levels of automation within the various processing steps also helps to improve efficiency and reduces the possibility of errors.
Integration with the management systems
The GN Advanced Traceability Technologies application can be integrated with any ERP and any other systems in the company. It allows the operator to have greater control over the product and to automate the flow of information to and from the company management, avoiding manual updates and continuous access. Through the integration with the ERP system and the recording of each advancement of the processing status of the single product, the company has a global control in real time on the progress of the production and logistics processes, always keeping under control the quantity of products being processed and warehouse stocks.
The GN Advanced Traceability Technologies solution has been applied to systems based on RFID and NFC and has already been implemented at several customers for the traceability of the production and packaging process.
Optionally, RFID and NFC-based technologies can be replaced with Bluetooth systems.
- GN ATT is the perfect solution to streamline warehouse product identification and data collection and management processes
- The main advantage is that the handheld can read labels beyond the field of view
- Allows you to have, in real time, a total visibility on the products stored and to collect data and technical details about them without interrupting production processes, purchasing or procurement operations
- Direct extraction of inventory data and updating of company software in real time (ERP, database)
- Complete integration with JDE ERP / Netsuite / Fusion Applications and with GN Mobile One
