Abstract/Description:

Inventory management has been a term that has long since been used in industrial settings. In its simplest form, it is a process of materials control whereby goods can be tracked in terms of location and quantity. Warehouses commonly deal with large amounts of materials that are of a varying nature and strict records must be kept in some sort of database to ensure on time and accurate shipment. For years, this process was done by hand, whereby items would be periodically counted and records would be updated. But in 1969, a new technology was introduced that would change inventory management forever, this technology was Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). RFID allowed items to be tagged with a transponder that would be readable remotely by a receiver.
