Course content

RFID in the supply chain is considered a disruptive technology with the potential to improve supply chain performance. It has evolved from a basic bar code replacement used at the pallet and case level to count things, to performance improvements in other areas such as inventory accuracy, shelf replenishment, loss prevention, price change management, prevention of theft, improvement of food safety and trace and track applications. RFID improvements can be at three levels:

1) Basic bar code replacement

2) Enhanced Business Process and

3) Designing new Business Processes.

This master seminar will be based on an RFID-demonstrator developed for the SMARTRACK-project to test and implement RFID in an intermodal transportation chains. The project involved 4 business partners Jernbaneverket, Cargo Net, Tollpost Globe and COOP in addition to Molde University College and SITMA.
