The project was initiated by the Korean Dongguk University and other universities and private companies collaborate on successful solving of this project. This innovative solution of identification covers the entire logistics chain which have never been put into practice.
Our proposed solution envisages with the production of universal and easily adaptable system that using RFID technology. The creation and implementation of the proposed system will contribute to reducing the costs associated with the logistics processes and minimize inventory. In other words, it will be easier to trace the individual components.
The parts were made so-called to the warehouse at the past. Communication between manufacturer, retailer and customer, as well as the subcontracting firms conducted orally or in writing. The ordering, logistics and information system was burdened by error and it was time consuming. In the future, the expensive parts should be marked by RFID tags to protect them against e.g. plagiarism. Components will also be better traceable. It should be noted that the companies do not manufacture the various car parts “to store” at this time, but to a specific customer order and directly for their consumption. Thanks to using the RFID technology, the entire logistics process will be considerably easier.
This innovative solutions consisting of the development of new hardware and software was initiated by Dongguk University in Seoul. On the product beside the Technical University of Ostrava cooperate Czech Technical University in Prague, Gaben, GS1 Czech Republic, University Žilina and Korean firms UPLUS Networks and MetaBiz.
The usage of RFID Technology in practice is very wide. Outside the automotive industry it can be used in the operation of transport companies, manufacturing companies, military logistics or medical facilities or recycling. The possibility of using identifiers based on radio frequency is much wider. It depends on the requirements of practice and skill of the scientists how they will apply new technologies.
