Radio frequency identification (RFID) is an important tool for enhancing the performance of inventory management. Motivated by our real-world observations in local hospitals, we study the case where a hospital, which is using a bar-coding system, considers switching to an RFID system because the RFID technology can potentially enhance the hospital's inventory management under the quick response system (QRS). In order to examine the value of RFID, we develop a formal analytical Bayesian model… CONTINUE READING
