Despite the potential of RFID technologies to improve supply chain operations and control, RFID projects especially in production heavy sectors are often restricted to basic recognition functionalities, leaving much of the vast potential to improve supply chain operations and control unharnessed. This paper aims at providing a procedure to identify advanced value added services based on the RFID technology, tailor made to companies' specific requirements. Considering all relevant processes the developed approach focuses on potential benefits from the RFID deployment throughout the supply chain. As a key element a case study for SMEs in the electronic component industry is presented.
