Abstract

While RFID has received significant coverage in the popular and IT press it is evident that managers, particularly those in the manufacturing industry, have limited knowledge about RFID with regards to its adoption and use. With the dearth of academic papers on the topic, a common occurrence whenever any new technology is in an emergent state, there appears to be a need for work that would fill the gap in knowledge as well as provide a basis for future research on RFID adoption in manufacturing settings. Drawing on the limited academic literature, white papers, and scholarly websites, this paper first discusses what RFID is and the issues affecting its adoption by organizations. It then goes on to propose a set of decision criteria that could inform managerial decisions to adopt RFID by manufacturing organizations.
