Supply Chain Management RFID Conference
These lectures are from a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Academic Conference which was held at MIT in January 2006. The conference was in connection to the MIT course Special Topics in Supply Chain Management. This course is centered on how RFID systems will transform the business landscape, with a particular emphasis on the supply chain. The course will take an interdisciplinary approach to analyzing the various aspects of a modern RFID system. Topics covered include technical components of RFID systems, supply chain management process analysis, value and productivity performance measurement of IT investments, legal, policy and regulatory aspects of auto-identification and the impact of RFID on business strategy. Students will leave with a detailed understanding of the important components of an RFID system, and how it interacts with most aspects of a business, from logistics to finance, strategy and IT.
