Integrating your supply chain management (SCM) system with RFID can be a challenging project. Before getting started, find answers to some common SCM RFID questions.

RFID was a popular buzzword a few years ago, but growth of SCM RFID integration in manufacturing has been slow. One of the biggest -- and, if successful, most rewarding -- challenges posed by this technology is SCM RFID integration.

As more manufacturers are adding RFID to their SCM systems, improvements in sensor technology are innovating the way products are tracked through the supply chain. Some of the latest advances in RFID and GPS technology are already improving SCM by allowing for better parts and equipment, more management, increased security and enhanced fleet management capabilities.
