Linking the RFID system Simatic RF600 to the cloud opens up exciting new scope for the use of data captured from RFID transponders – such as the registration and tracking of containers, pallets or products fitted with an RFID transponder.
The captured data can be analyzed and made available worldwide due to the web-based concept, creating transparency in terms of key performance indicators (KPIs) such as plant availability, utilization of assets or energy-saving potential. Using the MindSphere app concept, customers can be given access to a wide range of information such as RFID-based KPIs. This will allow the targeted optimization of production processes and supply chains with a view to improving efficiency and quality in production, logistics, asset management and other areas. As the basis for applications and data-based Siemens services for the fields of predictive maintenance and energy data, asset and supply chain management, Simatic RF600 and MindSphere are significant components for digitalization.
