ABB realizes 60 percent productivity growth by digitalizing their production including material flow tracking with an UHF-RFID system directly linked to the companyโ€™s SAP

In Order to increase productivity the company automated the tracking of their material flow with a RFID system that communicates directly with the ERP system. When a truck pulls in to deliver goods for the factory, the RFID readers register each item in the delivery directly to the companyโ€™s SAP offering instant availability information.
