Disruptions in Information Flow: A Revenue Costing Supply Chain Dilemma
AbstractThe integration of supply chains as a mechanism for value creation is largely dependent on continuous flow of real time accurate information from the customer back upstream to the manufacturer. This ideal is often unachievable when disruptions...
Effects of the RFID Mandate on Supply Chain Management
AbstractRecently, radio frequency identification (RFID) is being explored as a technology to be used in supply chain management. The use of RFID in the supply chain is an emerging technology that has attracted a lot of attention in the U.S., Europe,...
Enhancing Information Flow in a Retail Supply Chain Using RFID and the EPC Network: A Proof-of-Concept Approach
AbstractRFID technology and the Electronic Product Code (EPC) network have attracted considerable interest from businesses and academics in recent years. The interest is even stronger in the retail industry where firms such as Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Tesco,...
Impact of Position and Orientation of RFID Tags on Real Time Asset Tracking in a Supply Chain
AbstractWe studied the characteristics of four commercially available RFID tags such as their orientation on an asset and their position in a three dimensional real world environment to obtain comprehensive data to substantiate a baseline for the use...
Reengineering, Simulation and Data Analysis of an RFID System
AbstractWe present a discrete event simulation model reproducing the adoption of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology for the optimal management of common logistics processes of a Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) warehouse. In this study,...
RFID and Supply Chain Management: Introduction to the Special Issue
As markets become more global and competition intensifies, firms are beginning to realize that competition is not exclusively a firm versus firm domain but a supply chain against supply chain phenomenon. Visibility across operational activities-from...
The Impact of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Investment Announcements on the Market Value of the Firm
AbstractThis paper examines the impact of RFID investment announcements on the market value of the firms and explores industry effects of the positive abnormal returns to firms making the announcements. Drawing upon the efficient market theory, market...
Traceable Air Baggage Handling System Based on RFID Tags in the Airport
AbstractThe RFID is not only a feasible, novel, and cost-effective candidate for daily object identification but it is also considered as a significant tool to provide traceable visibility along different stages of the aviation supply chain. In the air...
