Work in Process

Work in process monitoring with RFID enables you to gain a higher degree of visibility and data for your manufacturing workflows.

Using RFID to Enhance Work in Process Trackingwork in process tracking with rfid

With RFID, you can monitor your manufacturing processes, materials, and workflows – helping you make products efficiently and on time. RFID work-in-process (WIP) tracking prevents errors, creates greater traceability, and promotes accountability through a digitized and automated chain of custody. Furthermore, using RFID for WIP tracking can also reduce hidden operating costs tied to inventory, labor, and overhead.

WIP applications for RFID Technology

Reduce lost materials, delayed product movements, and quality assurance errors that result in manufacturing by creating an automated, digital tracking system. RFID technology empowers you to increase visibility into key areas of your operations.

Quality Assurance & Compliance WIP production tracking

Passive RFID solutions can verify parts, materials, and equipment as they pass through certain checkpoints, creating an automated method for organizations looking to monitor compliance and quality during production. An RFID tracking solution can also prompt employees when materials are in the wrong work area, station, or conveyor. Alerts and notifications can trigger whenever inventory and assets reach checkpoints within your process or when workflows are completed.

Raw Materials & Parts Tracking

Pinpoint the location of critical parts and materials and identify where they are in the production pipeline. Track the movement of assets and inventory levels in real time throughout your facility. In turn, shortages and overstocks can be prevented, keeping production optimized.

Identify Bottlenecks Within Your Operations

Get clear visibility throughout your organization’s operations to improve the flow of materials and identify bottlenecks. Track items and materials throughout their entire lifecycle and record the moment it enters each facility to the time it’s ready to ship out to a new location.

What Goes Into An RFID System

Our RFID solutions use the right mix of tags, readers, software, and services to tackle your specific challenges.

  • Tags & Supplies

    Tags, labels, and inlays are the fundamental building block of any RFID solution. Between passive or active, a range of frequencies, label specsand environmental conditions there is a lot to evaluate when finding the right label.

  • Handheld Readers

    Gun-style, rugged handheld readers and good for read-intensive tasks in the warehouse and other industrial environments where a large quantity of tag data needs to be collected in a timeefficient manner.

  • Antennas

    Antennas provide the vital link between the fixed reader and tag, serving as the conduit that moves data back and forth. 

  • RFID Portals in Warehouse
    Fixed Readers & Portals

    With fixed RFID readers and checkpoints, you can quickly and accurately track large volumes of RFID-tagged cases, pallets, and items. They are ideal for use in high-density tag environments, high throughput applications, and on RF-challenging materials.

  • Printers & Encoders

    RFID printers give you the ability to identify, track, manage, and optimize, assets and inventory. Encoding (or printing) on RFID tags is the first step to having a successful RFID system.

  • RFID Software

    RMS Omega has partnerships with a variety of software vendors, allowing us to find the right inventory control or check-in/ check-out software for your application. RFID software provides a central database for monitoring inventory levels, location, and movement.

A Complete Solution From Design To Support

Every facility and business process has its own unique challenges. That is why RMS Omega takes a hands-on approach in managing RFID and RTLS implementations. Our process starts with understanding your unique challenges, needs, and goals – helping us create a solution that delivers positive outcomes for your business. Ultimately, we want to ensure that you receive a technology solution that exceeds your expectations and delivers a positive ROI. Our six-step process ensures just that.

Discovery & Design

Our trained systems & sales engineers will evaluate your work environment to determine the best plan of action for strategic technology implementation to solve challenges and achieve both short and long-term goals.

Project Management

RMS Omega has an internal team of solutions experts to oversee the successful design and implementation of complex and technical projects. We will monitor the project from the start and make sure everything is completed within an established timeline.

Statement of Work

The statement of work is a document that will map out our plan for implementation. This includes both hardware and software along with a description of processes after the system is complete. You will also receive a timeline for each phase of the project.


During deployment, we collaborate with your team to bring the proposed plan to fruition. Deploying each strategy often includes network design and implementation, staging and configuration of hardware, data integration, and staff training. Each of these necessary steps will ensure your team can hit the ground running once your system is live.

Analysis & Optimization

In an Analysis and Optimization, or A&O, we want to ensure your system is functioning the way it was intended. This is a process designed to optimize and enhance the performance of wireless coverage or system functionality throughout your facility and processes. An A&O is performed to identify and correct poor signals or reads along with incorrectly installed or underperforming hardware.

On-going Support

We are here to be an extension of your team, one point of contact for all of your data collection and RFID technology solution needs. To assist your organization in reaching new levels of productivity, you need a true partner, not just a vendor. That’s why we believe our support services are essential.
