Abstract
The purpose of this research is to investigate the implementation of the DoD's RFID mandate. Our research is based on the conjecture that all technologies emerge through either an explicit or implicit business process. Passive RFID implementation has not been managed strategically by OSD. Our aim is to interview key subject-matter experts from the Office of the Assistant Under Secretary of Defense Supply Chain Integration, Army, Navy, Air Force, Defense Logistics Agency, the DoD''s Office of Logistics Automation Information Technology, the Product Manager Joint-automated Information Technology Office, and members of the Joint Staff Logistics Directorate as to where the implementation progress of RFID within the DoD is being challenged. Based on our findings, we will make recommendations on the most appropriate strategy for managing passive RFID implementation.
