Abstract

The objective of this paper is to show that an RFID supply chain inventory management system can be a viable solution to the myriad of challenges encountered in the operation of the warehouses and stores in the petroleum development industry. This study involved the analysis of the warehouse and inventory management system in Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) in Nigeria with a view of identifying current operational challenges and proffers solutions to these challenges. A systems architecture of the solution is presented in the paper and a partial prototype implemented with the purpose to highlight how modern information technology and communication tools can be used as a value added tool in the supply chain management of SPDC.
