Paradigm shift – conventional vs. autonomous control
Case study 1 - FasTer
E. H. Harms Automobile-Logistics
2. Object of investigation
Investigation of several possible fields of application of RFID-Systems based on the processes of an idealised automobile terminal.
Current state – auto-terminal processes and weaknesses
2. Object of investigation
$ the Vehicle Identification No.
Opportunities for improvement
Adoption of transponders provides many opportunities for improvement, for example:
Improvement of data quality (complete and faultless date entry)
Process acceleration (immediate vehicle identification and passage documentation, bulk identification of entire truck loads)
Enhancement of process transparency (correct vehicle identification, complete documentation of vehicle movements, up-to-date vehicle stock)
Cost savings (decrease of costs resulting from faulty data entries, reduction of equipment cost through recycling of transponders)
Improvement of working conditions (simplification of date entry tasks through more comprehensive and improved computer-aided support.
Protection and improvement of the market position (development of competitive advantages due to early adoption of innovative ICT)
