Abstract

Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) technology has been widely used globally in the field of construction during the last two decades, specifically in Industrialized Building Systems (IBS) projects. IBS is a construction method that produces pre-manufactured building components in factory which are then being transported and assembled into the intended building structure at construction site using appropriate machineries and equipment. Subsequently, in recognition of the importance of management in IBS industry, this study aims to review methods of using RFID technology in IBS projects by reviewing current practice of IBS industries and identifying solutions to overcome common problems that often detriment this sector. Also to study the potential of RFID implementation to overcome the problems in the IBS projects. Quantitative approach is used to obtain information from respondent that utilize the IBS methods in their projects. The use of RFID technology in IBS projects which was studied pertains only the management of finish products and materials which are then being transferred on-site. The objective of this study to explore the use of Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in the management of Industrialized Building System (IBS) projects was achieved.
