Radio frequency identification (RFID) uses radio frequency technology for automated identification. The use of RFID brings the second source of information to enterprise management. It is said the second source is because, in the conventional approach, the information is shared among the various units through an integrated enterprise system. In this study, we define three layers of networks, i.e. Intranet, Extranet, and Internet, can be used to share RFID data and the adoption of RFID technology can be recognized into three phases: standalone adoption, supply chain adoption, and global adoption. Issues in each adoption will be address as well as road map to the success will be included.
