Case Study: Gas Cylinder Manufacturer

Problem:  • Theft of Gas Cylinders and increasing cost of replacement • Falling demand at distribution level • Unstable production planning Solution:  • Develop an integrated RFID hardware and software solution • Implement RFID product tagging • Implement automated RFID readers at factory and warehouse levels • Implement RFID Handheld Readers at distributor/retailer level Software implementation • Distributors and retailers must scan in full or empty cylinders received into online database • Distributor must scan out full cylinder sold and scan out empty cylinders returned to manufacturer • System flags stolen cylinders when returned to retailer or distribution centers for refill • Retailers/Distributor required to collect payment for returned missing cylinder before refill • Configure minimum inventory level for each distributor or retailer Result  • Receive notification when distributor or retailer is at minimum inventory level • Proactively drive revenue when notification of minimum inventory level is received. • Improved production forecasting • Reduce theft of cylinder with system implementation • Discourage distributors and retailers form participating in the cylinder theft activities • Reduce cylinder replacement costs
