Solving the Sequenced Part Delivery (SPD) Problem with RFID Technology

This white paper emphasizes the importance of RFID technology in solving absolute synchronization problem of Sequenced Part Delivery (SPD), and role of absolute synchronization in the delivery of outsourced part to the automotive assembly line. It examines the applicability of RFID technology to automotive parts outsourcing based on data from Intier Seating's assembly line where Escort Memory Systems (EMS)' RFID tags were used to synchronize SPD of car seats for Ford's new Edge models. SPD process at the Intier Seating plant and the use of RFID technology in a product tracking system for process automation is described. The report reviews the functionality of EMS' RFID controller/antennas installed into the pallet conveyor system and RFID tags installed on the shipping seat pallets. Benefits offered by RFID tags in terms of economy, reliability, and environmental safety are highlighted, and the limitations of barcode labels are mentioned. Usage of the RFID tags during shipping and unloading of the car seats on to trailers bound for Ford assembly plant is also covered.
