Abstract

Automated identification is a basic element for implementing efficient positioning, identification and status & authenticity systems in the supply chains. RFID allows to identify objects automatically without visual contact at several meters reading range. By improving the visibility in the supply chain, the different actors involved can improve the efficiency of their processes and lower operational costs. RFID is an enabling actor for visibility, but requires the involvement of all participants in the supply chain. This paper will discuss how visibility throughout the supply chain can be achieved: how to agree on common processes and the information exchanged. Practical examples are given.
