International Journal of Electronic Business (IJEB), Vol. 7, No. 1, 2009

Abstract: Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) brings a second source of information to enterprise management and adds to information conventionally shared among the various units within, and beyond an organisation's boundary. Fieldwork and case studies reveal the attitudes of organisations toward the sharing of information and the new technology. We propose a technology roadmap to prescribe the technological development necessary to support RFID adoption in supply chains as a three-phase adoption process. The advantages and issues of each phase of adoption are addressed. An analysis provides insight into the crucial factors that must be addressed to realise the benefits of RFID adoption.
