Abstract:

The purpose of this MBA project is to assess industry business practices in implementing RFID technology in the tracking and tracing of pharmaceuticals. Our project will focus on what was found during our research to include interviews and site visits which was quite different from what was portrayed by the media. Our analysis of a few organizations will identify what market leaders do when considering the implementation of a new technology into its business practices. Based on our analysis, we determined what patterns were common throughout the industry and what DoD should be aware of as it implements RFID technology in the tracking and tracing of pharmaceuticals.
