This course looks into the insights concerning the influence Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is likely to have on business in near future. Globally ambitious efforts are on to create value within commerce using RFID technology that focuses on the capability and potentials of self-identifying physical objects. It appears the world is moving in a direction to create even an internet of physical objects by connecting them over computer networks.

The course focuses on the essentials of RFID technology and its implications on business applications with emphasis on supply chain management (SCM). The practical aspects of RFID adoption are also addressed. The advancement of SCM is very much dependent on the capture and processing of data. The prospects lie in the integration of SCM with innovations in ICT to make faster and better decision making. RFID and EPCGlobal network form the core of the ICT infrastructure that can realize this integration.

The course would be appropriate for Technology consultants, Logistics managers, and for people who would have the responsibility of managing corporate supply chains.
