Abstract:Barcode is the most commonly used automated data collection system, but radio frequency identification (RFID) is catching up because of its adoption by many of the largest retailers. The discussion presented explains the impact that RFID will have on existing supply chain processes. Anticipated improvements from RFID implementation are demonstrated by comparing the benefits of RFID and barcode in various supply chain venues. Since cost and standardization are the biggest barriers to RFID implementation, RFID and barcode will continue to be used together because the technologies complement each other and can be used effectively in many applications. Future research in RFID will focus on data mining techniques to extract useful information from the large amount of data generated by …
