An RFID implementation in the automotive industry - improving inventory accuracy

Research output: Contribution to specialist publication or newspaperNewspaper article


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.
