A simulation model of a retail distribution centre with RFID technology

Hellström, Daniel LU (2003) 8th International Symposium on Logistics, 2003
Abstract
This paper presents a simulation model that has been developed to analyse how the application of Radio Frequency Identification technology (RFID) affects material handling activities in a retail distribution centre. The simulation model handles both stochastic and dynamic behaviours, and describes how the receiving, picking and shipping activities will behave and perform over time when RFID tags are applied to all individual products and units throughout the retail supply chain. The simulation model indicates that there is a great potential for increasing the efficiency of a distribution centre using RFID.
