Abstract

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, mandates by various large retailers and government agencies, have driven requirements for many organizations to implement the technology. The Chinese government and related companies have started or planned to deploy RFID technology to get a competitive advantage in the near future but there are still many uncertainties about their actual return on investment (ROI). Most RFID researchers throw their power on the benefits and investment evaluation and the firms also want to take the advantages of the technology to enhance their competitiveness. However, there is no comprehensive framework available for users to adopt RFID. In this paper, we examine open literature, news releases, and industry white papers to develop a theoretic framework for RFID adoption. The framework was validated with case studies from selected industries in China, including retailer, logistics, chemistry, tobacco and communications. This research throws some light on explaining why the progress of RFID adoption in China is slowing. Copyright
