Abstract: The implementation of RFID leads to improved visibility in supply chains. However, as a consequence of the increased data collection and enhanced data granularity, supply chain participants have to deal with new data management challenges. In this paper, we give an overview of the current challenges and solution proposals in the area of data collection and transformation, data organisation and data security. We also identify further research requirements.

Keywords: RFID; data management; supply chain management; SCM; automatic identification; radio frequency identification; data collection; data transformation; data organisation; data security.
