An RFID implementation in the automotive industry - improving inventory accuracy

Hellström, Daniel LU and Wiberg, Mathias LU (2010) In DILForientering p.28-33
Abstract
This paper explores and describes the impact of

radio frequency identification (RFID) technology on

inventory accuracy within a production and assembly

plant, and proposes a model for assessing the impact of

the technology on inventory accuracy. The empirical

investigation, based on case study research, focuses on

a RFID implementation at a supplier of bumper and

spoiler systems to the automotive industry. The results

indicate that RFID ensures that inventory inaccuracy

will be kept at minimum, providing practitioners with

the opportunity to further eliminate waste and improve

factory performance.
