Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a potent technology that manufacturing enterprises can deploy to enhance supply chain management, inventory control and asset management effectiveness. However, counterfeit prevention is seldom addressed in these RFID applications. The quality image of reputable manufacturers is vulnerable to the damage caused by the expanding flow of counterfeit products in today's global market. To combat the counterfeit problem, this paper proposes an Intelligent RFID-based Electronic Anti-Counterfeit System (InRECS) that will deliver accurate and global supply chain visibility with intelligent feedback into inventory and materials transfer processes. A case study will also be presented to highlight the benefits the proposed system can bring to the supply chain participants.
