DoD supply chain implications of radio frequency identification (RFID) use within Air Mobility Command (AMC)

By George W. Clark and Marcelo A. Hozven

Abstract

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.MBA Professional ReportThe purpose of this MBA project is to identify the existing and potential value of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) use in the operations of Headquarters Air Mobility Command (HQAMC) and its worldwide network of aerial ports. The project seeks to determine how the applications of RFID within AMC can add value to AMC's operations and the operations of other DoD supply chain members. In doing so, the project describes the technical attributes of DoD's RFID tags and infrastructure, AMC's legacy Automated Information System (AIS) known as Global Air Transportation Execution System (GATES), and AMC's role within its supply chain. The project includes a discussion of potential AMC and DoD supply chain RFID applications and resulting potential value. Ultimately, the project offers a process for creating a robust RFID infrastructure.Lieutenant, Chilean NavyLieutenant, United States Naval Reserv
