Automated material reorder with RFID at Kanban rack

If an empty container is placed on the upper level of the Kanban rack, it is reliably detected by an RFID read/write device and reported to a higher-level material management system via a modern communication interface such as OPC UA or REST-API. This can trigger a new replenishment process right away. This considerably reduces the overall restocking time.
