Abstract: Supply chain management (SCM) records the information about the movement of raw materials. Radio frequency identification (RFID) is the technology considered as the next promising technology in serving the positioning purpose. This paper proposes a SCM simulation platform that deals with the tracking of goods or raw materials at both indoor and outdoor environment and also to monitor the goods using IoT anywhere and also at any time. Indoor tracking of the good is accomplished through RFID tags and outdoor tracking is done through global positioning systems (GPS). XAMPP control panel is the server used here which is used to determine the location of goods and information updates on server.
