Abstract

This chapter examines the benefits achievable when radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology is implemented in the fashion supply chain, and is based on three of our earlier studies in this field. A theoretical feasibility study demonstrates how the logistics processes of a typical fashion retail store and distribution centre should be reengineered to implement RFID technology successfully, and provides a quantitative evaluation of the impact of applying RFID technology to those processes. These preliminary findings are confirmed in the main outcomes obtained from an in-field implementation, the RFID Fashion Pilot (RFP) study. The results of our economic analysis could be useful for companies operating in the RFID area or in fashion, and help to provide an economic justification for implementing RFID in the fashion industry.
