Abstract

This paper describes a study to develop and implement Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology for inventory management system in a supply store unit. Firstly, data was collected to identify the existing inventory management problems in the supply store management, and then followed by defining requirements of the system which suggested the use of RFID technology to fulfill these requirements. The development process included the utilization of specific hard-ware and self developed software programmed for usage in the supply store management. The system was tested in order to evaluate its efficiency, effectiveness, reliability, security and cost justification. It was found that the newly developed system had successfully managed to capture inventory data, track the borrower ID, keep the record updated and able to display the history of borrowed items, and also the fine imposed due to late return. The system also generated reports for inventory management and audit works in the supply store.
