Availability of real-time information facilitates efficient production coordination. Effective applications of RFID technology in the automated manufacturing environment can help optimize system. Information available on real time basis, increase the efficiency and effectiveness of any organization. Radio Frequency identification (RFID) is one such technology which provides information on real time basis and that too without the requirement of line of sight. RFID technology has many different applications across various industries. This paper focuses on the applications of RFID in manufacturing organizations. Through literature review various applications of RFID technology in manufacturing organizations were identified, and later through factor analysis five factors for applications namely Work in Progress Management; Inventory Management; Logistics Management; Warehouse Management and In Process Logistics Management were identified.
