A RFID-enabled shop floor logistic management system using analytic hierarchy process and cooperative games methods

English Abstract

Along with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in enterprises is wide application day by day, various of RFID applications are gradually increased. In this research, a RFID-enabled shop floor logistic management system is investigated. The shop floor logistic management is mainly composed of three aspects, the supermarket, the assembly lines and the dispatching schedule. In the traditional model, the workshop managers are in charge of the entire shop floor, they need to propose the optimal decisions to handle with the disruption events which occurred during the workshop is running. Nevertheless, the workshop managers acquire the production information transmission in shop floor with transmission-delay. This research come up with a RFID-enabled shop floor logistic management strategy aims to decrease the production cost and improve production efficiency. With the RFID-enabled shop floor logistic management system, the production information could be transmitted in almost realtime. The relationships, such as material matching relations, productive relations, and the dynamic location of each research objective in workshop, can be described as relationship matrixes. Consequently, the physical monitoring in shop floor can be changed into digital monitoring, meanwhile, it improves the monitoring more precisely. Furthermore, the disturbance events occurred during the regular production are also be studied. In order to reduce the disturbance cost, this research focuses on how to find out the approximate dispatch vehicle when there is another dispatch vehicle breakdown. Depended on the three kinds of results which would be caused, three corresponding solutions, including analytic hierarchy process method and cooperative game method, are provided. Each of the method aims to find out the optimal dispatch vehicle. As a consequence, the workshop manager can make the rescue decisions based on the optimal results. This thesis is divided into three parts. Firstly, logistic shop floor system equipped with RFID devises, including the logistics workshop layout, RFID data collection and transmission, has been introduced. Secondly, the disturbance events in logistics workshop are discussed. With the active examine pattern and passive examine pattern, types of methods are proposed to enhance the emergency capacity of workshop management. Under the two examine pattern, two methods have been proposed to approach to an optimal decision in a short time. Lastly, an example is also given to verify the improvements. A chapter of brief conclusion will be made at the end of the thesis.
