This article focuses on the value of standards and the industry's work to date on an ePedigree standard, track-and-trace and electronic product code (EPC)/radio frequency identification (RFID). Parallels are drawn between the development of the bar code standard in the 1970s by EPCglobal's parent company, GS1 US, and the activities seen today in the EPC/RFID marketplace. The article also touches on issues such as patient privacy, item identification, sensor technology. Last, the article…

The prototype and application of rfid implementation: a case study of automobiles assembly industries
TLDR
The benefit of RFID in automatic identification is reviewed and its application in automobile assembly to obtain information in real time is explored and it is hoped that this technology can function in accordance with the concept of just-in-time (JIT) plant inventory management and reflect the spirit of lean production to efficiently meet actual demand.
A PKI-based Track and Trace Network for Cross-boundary Container Security
TLDR
The Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) in an eSeal device to enhance the cross-boundary container security and concerns related to data security increase when eS Seal is applied in the track and trace infrastructure.
The Role of Traceability in Sustainable Supply Chain Management
Nowadays, sustainability has become a new management principle for firms to steadily compete in the market. On the public side, food crisis has increased consumers' awareness of safety on their

TLDR
The evolution of health care supply chain research is traced, the past and current research efforts to develop viable health care solutions are synthesized, and promising future research themes that can fine-tune these solutions are proposed.
An empirical evaluation of existing IS change theories for the case of IOIS evolution
TLDR
Practical terms, this paper shows that the transformation from closed to open IOIS may require adoption of longer time frames than are usually assumed and closer attention to norms and rationales usually neglected in IS projects.
