Case Study
Application of RFID for tracking each single part in the Tractor supply chain management is becoming very crucial in recent years. In this study, the factors influencing the RFID development in ITMCO and their weights and ranks are evaluated. The factors of the Lin framework have been used as the basis of this research. The fuzzy Delphi, Delphi and Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process methods are adopted for three stages of the study. In the first stage, three of the Lin framework factors are rejected and replaced with seven more new factors. In the second stage, after performing three round of Delphi method, the dimension of each new seven factors is recognized, and finally in the third stage, the weights and ranks of factors and dimensions, influencing the RFID Development in supply chain management at ITMCO would be calculated. The results of the study have shown that the dimension of International Standard and Specification has the highest weight among other influential dimensions. The dimensions of Security, Cost, Infrastructure, Technology, and other factors have the next highest weight respectively.
