The purpose of this paper is to introduce one of the leading new technologies, “Radio-frequency identification (RFID)”, and investigate the effects of applying this technology on target environment in Iran.
The variables, affected by application of RFID technology in various environments, were extracted through the review of literature then a research was carried out in this field, and the obtained variables were localized by consulting with the experts in this area. A questionnaire was developed through using these variables and distributed among a sample of RFID technology providers and users after testing its the reliability and validity. Finally, the statistical tests on the obtained results from the research led to the discovery of components.
The findings of this paper would be discovered components, which are affected by application of RFID technology, are as follows:Tracking quality, decision-making improvement, error control, warehouse management, cost leadership, level of assurance, inventory data, speed of provided service, data monitoring and order management.
Considering the prevalent use of RFID technology in various industries around the world, the need for this technology and its benefits becomes obvious to everyone. This paper has created a proper vision of RFID for readers through collecting a wide range of RFID technology benefits as well as discovering the major components associated with application of this technology.
Key words: RFID technology; Tracking; Inventory management; Decision making
