Reverse logistics is constantly gaining in importance for both research and practice. Research on RFID has so far concentrated on the use of RFID in order to support forward logistics processes, but is beginning to realize the specific potentials and benefits of RFID systems in this evolving research area. IS research has so far addressed individual and(More)
For quite a long time already, great importance has been attached to the concept of Service-Oriented Architectures for future IT-architectures. However, a major challenge in implementing this concept lies in the gap between the functional department and IT department. Mashups, an architecture also based on services, try to avoid this gap by letting the user(More)
The implementation of RFID leads to improved visibility in supply chains. However, as a consequence of the increased data collection and enhanced data granularity, supply chain participants have to deal with new data management challenges. In this paper, we give an overview of the current challenges and solution proposals in the area of data collection and(More)
Cross development techniques are very attractive to be applied in high performance scientific computing because the parallel systems are expensive and should rather be utilized to perform production runs than to debug parallel programs. However, if development and execution platforms differ, techniques are required to efficiently predict the performance(More)
The majority of RFID implementations can be traced back either to mandates issued by companies or institutions with significant market power like Wal-Mart or the U.S. Department of Defense, or to the replacement of existing Auto-ID technologies like barcodes. Only sporadically is RFID being used to derive superior information about current processes in(More)
