The Place of Emerging RFID Applications to Enhance Operations Management
RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) is one of the system solutions for tracking and tracing objects both globally and locally using RFID tags. It is an auto-ID procedure for identifying objects automatically within a geographical area. It allows information about an object to be collected automatically without having to handle the object or enter its data manually. RFID uses tags which communicate information by radio wave through antennae on small computer chips attached to objects so that such objects may be identified, located, and tracked. This technology has found a significant areas of application in business supply chains, in medical line, in security applications, and in fact many areas of human efforts.
