Abstract [en]

RFID is an up-and-coming technology holding promise of closing information gaps in the supply chain. Information is probably the biggest driver of performance in supply chains today and information control is seen as a huge advantage in management. This report addresses how RFID may contribute to improve management and supply chain within warehouse management. By doing a case study of three Norwegian businesses the report finds processes in management and logistics. An evaluation of where a theoretical RFID implementation may impact show that RFID increases data and data collection in almost all identified processes. Both management and logistics in general have the potential of automating several processes and collected data results in increased information sharing. When businesses handle identified challenges in the technology RFID have huge possibilities in improving warehouse management and the supply chain in general.
