Poltrona Frau Uses RFID to Increase Manufacturing and Logistics Efficiency
Italian furniture manufacturer Poltrona Frau, a leader in top-of-the-range furniture recognized throughout the world for the design and production of its Italian-made goods, has been refining its sophisticated expertise in hand-crafted workmanship for more than 100 years. Each year, Poltrona Frau manages a countless number of European full-grain leather pieces, each one with specific characteristics. Due to the very high cost and the strategic role of this material, the firm introduced RFID into its manufacturing process to track and trace leather from the tannery to the production department, where it is then made into a piece of luxury furniture. Learn how the company is using the technology to manage the leather warehouse, where every optimization has a huge impact on the overall efficiency of the production process.
