This paper explains two main aspects of RFID supply chain management - the generic supply chain management and the specific military application for the purpose of asset viability. The generic supply chain management is studied by examining how to improve supply chain management through accurately determining inventory levels in real time without human interaction. For the military application, the current legacy systems used by the military for supply chain management and asset visibility are analyzed and suggestions are made for improvements in the form of total asset visibility through radio frequency identification tags, and geographic information systems.
