Abstract

The use of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tracking in closed systems is replacing barcode as dominant tracking system in many industrial sectors because RFID enables reading multiple objects simultaneously without visual contact. To enlarge tracking systems to cover global supply chains, all aspects related to RFID, such as radio frequencies, data content, transmission protocols and message sets need to be standardised and agreed. By collecting, processing and distributing information efficiently, organisations should be able to improve the efficiency of their transport logistics processes, lower their operational costs and improve their portfolio of logistics services. This paper describes the current perspectives, challenges and benefits of RFID tracking applications in manufacturing industry. The perspectives derived from review of previous research are validated by using case study method
