Business Process Management Journal - Special Issue on “Modeling and Simulation of RFID Applications and its Business Impacts”


Important Dates:
Paper Submission: June 1, 2009 (extended)
Authors Notification: July 1, 2009
Final Submission: July 15, 2009
Projected Publication: October, 2009

Special Issue Scope
The RFID technology and discipline have been widely discussed in current literature and business and industry forums. With its growing affordability, availability and applicability, the RFID technology finds its way into literally every sector of economy, business and industry such as transportation and cargo, storage and retail, healthcare, manufacturing, and many other sectors and domains. One of the domains where RFID is showing unprecedented potential is supply chain management, where tracking, monitoring, timing, security, coordination and planning play important roles.
It is emerging as the next wave of IOS that can transform supply chain management practices. While the potential of RFID technology is obviously high in terms of operational performance optimization, there are various theoretical and managerial issues to be studied.

How should an appropriate business case be constructed? What is the impact on the firm when RFID is used only by some of the trading partners? Will RFID have similar impacts inside and outside an organization? In the same light, it is worth knowing what considerations are to be taken into account at the extended enterprise network level and throughout the whole industry. Furthermore, introduction of RFID will have certain behavioral, managerial and business impacts. It would be interesting to research how RFID and real-time decision-making will change managerial and organizational capabilities, etc. In contributing to this debate, this special issue aims to provide some answers by focusing on papers dealing with RFID applications, RFID in supply chain management using modeling and simulation in order to assess the business impacts of the technology. Suggested topics, but are not limited to:

Suggested Topics
-Business process modeling & simulation, business process redesign and RFID technology

-Modeling and simulation of the impact of RFID technology on quality management

-Modeling and simulation of the costs and risks associated with RFID deployment in one organization and network level
