Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is an emerging technology that could have the most significant transformative effect on the world of commerce since the Internet became available to the masses Currently, RFID has hundreds of applications including the tracking of objects, animals, and people; the effects of RFID are not only rippling throughout the United States economy, but are spurring sweeping changes in the way the world does business. The Food and Drug Administration is responsible for the oversight and regulation of approximately one-quarter of the goods and services exchanged in the United States each year. For this reason, the FDA is in the best position to monitor the impact of developments in RFID and to exercise regulatory control over its development, implementation and ongoing use. This paper first provides an introduction to the relevant technology including a description of the most common radio-frequency identification systems and examination of the market forces driving its mass-adoption. Secondly, this paper outlines the FDA’s broad scope of regulatory authority and surveys the landscape, detailing many of the applications of RFID within the industries that operate under the watchful eye of the FDA.

This thesis reviews the current logistics processes and issues for container shipments in the supply chain. In particular, the problems associated with container shipments from China to the US, via the Hong Kong Port, includes low end-to-end visibility, security concerns, low product- handling productivity, and unmanageable unexpected events. Research was conducted using results from both interviews and surveys to collect information about the current process. This thesis also proposes the use of RFID-enabled logistics to improve the current processes and discusses the impact and value of the RFID-enabled processes. The research results show that through RFID technology, collaborators in the supply chain can improve product-handling productivity, supply chain visibility, and product security. Furthermore, the RFID application for supply chain management can increase the use of direct shipment and cross-docking, which result in considerable cost savings to both a manufacturer and a retailer.; by Taehee Han.; Thesis (M.

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; MBA Professional Report; Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; The purpose of this MBA project is to identify the existing and potential value of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) use in the operations of Headquarters Air Mobility Command (HQAMC) and its worldwide network of aerial ports. The project seeks to determine how the applications of RFID within AMC can add value to AMC's operations and the operations of other DoD supply chain members. In doing so, the project describes the technical attributes of DoD's RFID tags and infrastructure, AMC's legacy Automated Information System (AIS) known as Global Air Transportation Execution System (GATES), and AMC's role within its supply chain. The project includes a discussion of potential AMC and DoD supply chain RFID applications and resulting potential value. Ultimately, the project offers a process for creating a robust RFID infrastructure.; Lieutenant, Chilean Navy; Lieutenant, Chilean Navy; Lieutenant, United States Naval Reserve
