The purpose of this research is to determine the impacts of utilizing radio frequency identification (RFID) technology in order to implement intransit visibility (ITV) into the Marine Corps' Supply Process. I interviewed experts and users of the LTMITV/W2W at the Supply Management Unit (SMU), 1st Combat Logistics Regiment, 1st Marine Logistics Group on the operational implementation of the system as well as benefits and opportunities for improvement. With the information I recovered and data I collected, I was able to create a small simulation of the supply process. I used the simulation to create various scenarios that have been encountered in the past including possible negative impacts of the lack of ITV at certain portions of the supply process. I made recommendations on how to improve the current supply process as well as recommendations for future research.
