Ubiquitous Logistics Management in the Steel Industry

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 215)


Recently, steel industry including the ubiquitous logistics cost savings with IT skills and enhance their competitiveness in terms of traceability and logistics management through efficient management and utilization of real-time information about the importance of awareness and with increased require of needs logistics management services based on ubiquitous IT environment, focusing on the core of the many services that can be said to belong to the service area. Thus, the introduction of ubiquitous technology in the field of logistics in the steel industry, with some merits at minor degree and although some advantage is very small level. In this paper, presents the feasibility of deploying RFID for the steel industry as a tool to reduce the production costs. Steel industry that is applicable to RFID-based tracking management system is proposed. The results of this paper proved that the recognition of 100 % came from the material input and output and the location, the location indicated 99 % detection rate. Therefore, the proposed RFID-based tracking management system was found superior to the existing system in terms of productivity.
