Abstract: Radio-frequency identification or RFID is the wireless non-contact use of radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data, for the purposes of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. This technology has found application in many industries. In this project, the application of RFID in supply chain industry has been explored. In the supply chain industry is it of utmost importance that the location and product details of the goods being moved from one point in the supply chain to another be known at all times. This is the issue that has been addressed in this project. The first part of the project deals with implementing RFID technology in supply chain system. The RFID data is extracted from tags and readers using RFID Middleware. Integrating this RFID data with enterprise applications for business use is an important factor. Different techniques for doing this have been studied and the most effective solution has been provided using Service-Oriented Architecture. In the second part of the project, a prototype supply chain management application has been designed. Small and medium enterprises often cannot afford expensive software tools for managing the business effectively and the cost of setting up Information Technology infrastructure becomes very high. Thus, an approach using Cloud Computing has been suggested here. A cloud based supply chain management application has been developed to cater to such enterprises. Finally, these two parts of the project has been integrated to form an end-to-end system for supply chain tracking using RFID and Cloud computing technology.
