Literature Review of RFID-Based Garment Manufacturing Information System

Loebbecke states that RFID is a “wireless technology” which uses broadcasted radio signals to tag here it  identify and automatically trace and track the faction of the item. Delen says that this technique is one of the auto recognition technologies which also comprises of three ubiquitous barcodes as well as magnetic strips. RFID infrastructure contains three principal components .On them one is transponder it is reusable tag with small computer chip which recognizes the object  and the  other is the reader it serves  as an communication channel between the RFID based information system and tag and the another is data collection application contains  a software result and an aerial.

Ngai says that the application of RFID technology is varied and also applied in at least 14 various industries like library services, supply chain management, retailing, and logistics. In spite of rising recognition of RFID technology  textile and garment manufacturing industry which is labor intensive manufacturer which can be barely  be automated and are not adopting such technology  yet. Mostly so many organizations of garment producing industry are using manually or partially bar coding system to keep track of manufacturing line. Here it occur problems frequently because as garment manufacturing company is labor intensive industry. To better management of operation and also to solve operation problem there is a need of real time information. The china is the largest manufacturing bases in the world as it is center of garment and textiles .Moreover the china’s operation cost of garment industry is increasing quickly because of increasing labor cost and also harsh regulations on labor right and working time. Garment producing industries require increasing in the effectiveness an efficiency of the production system so as to remain competitive in the market, so the probable solution for this is RFID.

In this study it had adopted “technology-push as well as need-pull” perception in examining the emphasizing motivation of the textile as well as garment manufacturing industry to endowed in RFID technology. The concepts of “technology-push and need-pull” were taken from the R&D administration discipline and Engineering for examining the key factors  in decision of adoption of latest technology where requirement factors and technology is serve as fundamental framework while examining the motivation and decision of adoption in the case study.
