RFID in Supply Chain
The objective of effective supply chain management is the coordination of information, materials and financial flows between organizations. RFID is an emerging technology that can further contribute to supply chain optimization. RFID enables accurate real time product location information provision in high volumes and at very low (or even zero) labor costs. RFID technology is believed to initially substitute barcode for product identification. Later on, when the adoption level becomes mature enough, RFID will be used for optimizing many internal and inter-company processes.
In this project we aim to study the impact of RFID technology and real-time data in effective supply chain decision making. More specifically, we plan to simulate supply chain operations and RFID deployment in order to study the effect of RFID across different dimensions, such as forecasting accuracy, inventory management, distribution and traceability processes, dynamic pricing, information sharing and collaboration, innovative consumer services, marketing variables etc.
