Abstract: This paper integrates the impact of different approaches in implementing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, namely supply chain inventory management system based on RFIDs to address the challenges encountered in the operation of the warehouses, item-level inventory tracking at retail stores, and customer order processing and distribution using RFIDs; to eventually propose RFID based supply chain management. Supply chain management (SCM) involves an effective information sharing, inventory management, transportation, sourcing and pricing strategies. This paper highlights upon how RFID can improve SCM drivers, one by one, and together that improve overall synergy. This paper extends the solutions of case studies and proposed improvements to RFID solutions in ERP applications. The paper also highlights the motivation to such implementations as these solutions offer further cost savings and performance gains. Consequently we conclude that RFID is a vital technology for the success of SCM and bridging the gaps among the existing enterprise applications.
