Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is expected to increase efficiency and transparency in the automotive supply chain. The lack of data standards in the automotive industry has been identified as one of the principal barriers for RFID adoption and diffusion in cross-company environments. At present the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) is reviewing the existing AIAG B-11 Item Level RFID Standard to produce a standard that meets the identified needs of the automotive industry. In this paper we apply first results of the working group to a real life project environment. We extend existing standards and industry recommendation to derive an appropriate data structure for forward and reverse logistics and hereby contribute to the ongoing standardization discussion.
