For fulfilling the household appliance's product lifecycle management, in this paper, while taking the refrigerator as the research object, a product lifecycle management system based on radio frequency identification and the electronic product code internet of things is designed and developed. The PLM system has five subsystems: production subsystem, warehousing and logistics subsystem, sales subsystem, maintenance subsystem, recycling subsystem. The techniques of the RFID labels and EPC

The system can be used to fulfill the household appliance's whole PLM process including warehousing, logistics and distribution, sales, repair, recycling and product tracking and tracing. The system has been applied in a refrigerator manufacturing enterprise in Guangdong, China. It improves the accuracy of product information acquisition and transmission, also the logistics efficiency, and reduces the cost, provides better service for the consumer. The system has a good prospect of application and extension. Keywords-household appliance; product lifecycle management system; internet of things; EPC; RFID I.
