Internet of things (IoT) technologies have reached a level of maturity at which a critical number of end users are benefiting from innovative applications within their supply chain. In this seminar, how to leverage RFID/IoT's ability to automatically identify and track objects in real-time throughout the supply chain will be discussed. An RFID-enabled portal will be assembled and supply chain transactions (automated receiving and shipping, for example) to investigate how to move from automated data capture to real-time transactions shall be discussed to enable the basis of building so called «Smart Supply Chains».
