Abstract: The manufacturing of automated machines is done by skilled engineers with the required tools in reach at time and place of easy reach. Tool misplacing is a phenomenon that is leading to efficiency loss of 20-25% working hours which is indirectly related to cost to company. Toolbox and tool chest have a definite position and slot for each size and type of tool. Due to day to day increasing non track-ability of tools, a RFID Arduino circuit which checks the employee details and grants access to the toolbox/tool chest. This methodology can be used for service engineer SPC tracking. This integrated system can reduce toolbox replacement from 3-4 months to once in a year. System can be installed and customised to industrial standards and other requirements.
