Seeks to carry out an empirical study to reveal the business characteristics of the printing industry and to accomplish a quantitative analysis of costs and benefits for RFID applications in different logistics activities.
The business operation requirements and RFID acceptance of distinct roles in the printing supply chain are explored via interviews and questionnaires. The printing supply chain is classified into six fundamental models and RFID application scenarios for the six models are also provided.
The ideal approach for RFID application in the printing supply chain is the item‐tagging mechanism.
The decision maker can refer to the cost and efficiency look‐up tables to quickly evaluate the feasibility for RFID implementation.
This paper provides useful reference information for enterprises to evaluate the RFID implementation in the supply chain.
