Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology is real time locating system (RTLS) without line of sight. RFID has rapidly grown significantly over the last few years. The RFID network integrated with the ZigBee low cost low power mesh network will increase the efficiency of inventory management effectively resulting to control the product loss or shrinkage in supply chain management (SCM). This paper explain radio frequency identification technique which can be connected to the internet enabling identify, locate, track or monitor supply chain flow. The issues can be resolved by development of smart interface of system and control variables such as coordinates of the readers, the number of the readers and the antenna parameters. The benefit of application of RFID with zigbee network and internet of things in (SCM) increases the traceability of items in real time and update the information exchange. It also increases the quality of care and services, increases the productivity and reduces the cost, power consumption and human error.
