Tractor production stock automation. Filling stocks’ shelves smoothly and automatically.
Each supplementary item delivered is marked with RFID tags. Boxes emptied in the production are returned to the smart shelf that reads RFID tags automatically. With the help of the smart shelf, utensil provider Ferrometal’s ERP system receives orders in real time. Smart shelf for Valtra is a simple and easy storage solution because no calls, emails or messages are needed, when supplementary items are running out of stock. Production becomes more efficient since delays and errors in the order process caused by human factors are left out. Speed is an asset for Valtra because delays in receiving storage items have an immediate effect in the whole production chain.
When you don’t notice it – it works.
Tractor manufacturer Valtra has now years of experience from RFID smart shelf used in inventory management. The service is based on My.Shelf storage solution designed by Top Tunniste.
“We use RFID technique with hundreds of different products. We have been positively surprised by the versatility of the smart shelf system: we can build almost anything our customer needs on top of this system. With this type of project there always comes challenges, but ToP Tunniste has reacted quickly to all of them and things have been resolved immediately” says Mika Brandt, the CEO of Ferrometal Oy.
