Sammanfattning: Introduction: Today, effective flow is of great importance in companies in heavier industries to get the maximum capacity out of their resources. Automating their flows can prove extremely important to get the maximum capacity you capable of. RFID is a smart technology for achieving an automated flow built for the future. Importance of logistics is becoming increasingly important for competitive companies that want to create the greatest possible profitability. More developed processes in flow can be a way for companies to move towards becoming more efficient and competitive. RFID can be a way of working as technology to quickly and efficiently simplify processes while ensuring that information is read managed faster.Purpose: The purpose of the study is to create a broader knowledge of RFID as a technology and its opportunity to create value for and to improve the flow and processes of companies that choose to apply this tool within their business.Method: To achieve the objectives of the study and answer the purpose of this thesis project, observations have been made at a case company and interviews with carefully chosen personnel at the case company were made. This has since been critically reviewed against data collected in the theoretical reference framework. Theory has been critically reviewed in most databases and compared with several sources to ensure credibility. Interviews that belong to the qualitative data collection consist of varying interview questions that are available in the study. This is a general approach the authors have used to achieve the purpose of the study.Result: The result of this study was conducted through the qualitative survey conducted through the case company, where it was founded that the case company is manual in its processes and way of working. Based on data and previous research investigated it has been suggested that a more automated approach would be more optimal and create a higher value for a larger company in heavier industry.Conclusion: The study identifies and detects the challenges that manual a flow and processes have in comparison to more automated flow and processes when it comes to eliminate wastes that arise. RFID is a good and useful technology when it comes to reading different amounts of data in a fast and efficient way.
