RFID is already an integral part of internal warehouse management – the logistics service provider DSV identifies the need for technological development in supply chain processes

In several automotive industry logistics centres, RFID is already an integral part of in-house logistics for goods movement control. “We want to have this optimisation in the supply chain, too. In a technological sense, this area has hardly moved on”, explains Paul Claessen, Automotive Development Manager at the logistics provider DSV Road. Critical cross-docking processes especially could become significantly more effective and much safer through the use of standardised RFID.

Be at the right place at the right time with RFID!

Currently, approximately 26,000 ordered items leave the Global Parts Distribution Center of Scania Parts Logistics in Opglabbeek, Belgium every day. To satisfy the ever-increasing orders from customers worldwide, the site has recently been significantly expanded. After the success of the employment of an RTLS-RFID system in the Scania Parts Center 1 (SPC 1), the use of RFID is currently being extended to SPC 2, recently built in 2012–2013. First tests with the new technology have provided such good results that the roll-out in late October will optimise delivery processes significantly benefitting overseas customers.

The automotive logistics service provider, Schnellecke, integrated this concept into its just-in-time delivery processes within its logistics centres in Bratislava and Leipzig

Every day around 50,000 parts leave the Schnellecke logistics centre in Bratislava “just in time” (JIT). This is one of Schnellecke’s 47 international logistics service centres for the automotive industry and it is one of two logistics centres where the sub-assembly processes and sequencing are controlled by RFID. “By integrating RFID into our IT system, we have established processes that are lean and state-of-the art. We achieve process stability, which is our ultimate goal for just-in-time logistics”, explains Dr. Abaid Goda, Senior Manager IT, Schnellecke Group.

Mercedes-Benz in Bremen is testing a new RFID tag to detect moisture during leakage tests

Water becomes a problem when it enters a vehicle. Therefore, extensive and meticulous leakage testing needs to be a standard procedure in vehicle finishing. Leakage tests are given a lot of attention, particularly in the early stages of a new production model. Innovative car concepts, such as hybrid vehicles with additional components, require an equally innovative way of testing, since conventional methods are no longer applicable. A promising approach is a completely new RFID application for the Bremen plant – Mercedes-Benz is in the process of planning this with a technology partner.

RFID tags are far more than just a production tool! Being a part of the vehicle design, they can create added value for after-sale services

Since 2004, Volvo Cars has been committing itself to the “one unique tag” strategy and is strictly following this philosophy when rolling-out RFID globally under guidance from their European headquarters. The proven RFID systems were already fully integrated in the production site in Chengdu, China. Two more implementations in Chinese sites are planned for 2016. “However, new manufacturing processes required an adaption of the concept and the positioning of the tag,” explains Yvan Jacquet, Project Manager, Volvo Car Gent. The vision of the Swedish car manufacturer: The integration of RFID tags as a part of the vehicle design.

RFID establishes decisive transparency over a pool of 110,000 special load carriers

Tata Steel Packaging (TSP), subsidiary of one of the largest steel companies worldwide, manufacturers steel products for the packaging industry in the Dutch city IJmuiden. The major share of the products is transported as coils on the circa 110,000 special returnable transport items (RTIs) with a total value of about 17 million. Around 10 percent of these RTIs gets lost per year. Therefore, a solution needed to be implemented. Today, all RTIs are captured automatically at the loading and unloading of the trucks as well as when coil and RTI are “wed” in the packaging system. The result: more transparency, lower expenditures.

“We can produce goods more effectively and reliably”

Two years after the launch of RFID-enabled bumper production in Meerane, Hendrik Rothe, CEO of Magna Exteriors & Interiors (Meerane), comes to a positive conclusion: “The reliability of RFID-based manufacturing and system solutions ensures product quality – this is a successful way of attracting new customers as well as convincing automotive suppliers. Within an unusually short time the Magna plant in Saxony, Meerane, achieved 100 per cent utilisation. And the use of the technology will be expanded and refined.”

Ready for the Islands

Linked production processes in special machines have disadvantages: A stop at one station results almost immediately in the shutdown of the entire machine. Intelligent buffer sections can ensure a continuous flow of production but can mostly only be implemented effectively with the identification of the workpieces. Automotive supplier EuWe Eugen Wexler GmbH & Co. KG has implemented this in a new production plant for rear vents – with Turck's BL ident RFID system.

Virtual processes equal physical processes

Since the RAN-project, Bosch is driving a circle of innovation consisting of data collection, data evaluation and retroactive optimization of logistic processes

Between 2008 and 2013, the number of RFID-based bookings rose from almost zero to circa 20 million bookings in productive systems of the 16 factories in four business segments and different fields of activity. Manual processes are further and further digitalized and visualized virtually. „Where an employee used to fill out a paper, RFID-based scan processes exist now. From the logistics center to the assembly is transparent and visible at any time“, tells Dr. Daniel Neuhäuser, Bosch Corporate Sector Information Systems & Services. What optimized processes will be made possible in future by data collection and -processing on a centralized platform, explains he in the interview with „RFID im Blick“.

Transparent Production with the Airbus Business Radar

Highest quality standards in order to protect human lives: „Should a screwdriver get lost in an airplane, it may cause fatal damages if the plane leaves the ground. This scenario must be prevented by all means – RFID supports us here. Furthermore, to streamline our production with RFID, we are increasing our processes’ transparency and are promoting innovation.“ From individual RFID-tags applied to a tool, to the smart factory, Marc Lorentz of Airbus Operations, tells in this interview, how Airbus, with RFID technology as the key enabler, optimizes Smart Factory’s business processes, insures quality and reduces costs at the same time.
