Abstract [en]

Purpose of this paperPractitioners and academics have identified and acknowledged presence of gap related to actual and potential values of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology in manufacturing industry. The purpose of this study is to present the RFID implementation in Swedish manufacturing firms and to what extend this technology is utilized throughout the supply chains of manufacturing companies.Design/methodology/approachIn this paper, we present a survey of RFID implementation in Swedish manufacturing firms, concerned with RFID system penetration. Large set of data from a large number of respondents in order to attain external validity and generalizable results. Empirical measures of a distribution’s shape characteristics (skewness and kurtosis) were used to assess the normality of the metric variables. The analyses are focused on to scrutinize the RFID impact on firms’ productivity and cost reduction in their supply chains.FindingsLevel of RFID implementation among Swedish manufacturing firms, and awareness of impact of this technology in the manufacturing industry.Research limitations/implicationsThe findings of this study can lay foundation of conduct for further empirical studies of impacts of RFID on manufacturing firms and their supply chains.Practical implicationsManagers are faced with a dilemma regarding adoption of RFID systems, since the decision may lead their firms either to outperform their competitors or waste valuable resources.Originality/valueAwareness of impact of RFID technology in manufacturing firms Supply chains. A distinctive insight in Swedish manufacturing implementation of this technology; which, comprehensives existing knowledge in the area.
