1. Become familiar with RFID technology and its potential uses in Harley- Davidson's supply chain using the information presented in this chapter and information you obtain through the Web Links, your favourite search engine, and your library. Outline the advantages Harley-Davidson might gain by replacing its bar codes and optical scanner technologies with RFID. Be sure to consider the nature of the company's product, which includes rubber and metal parts in oily/greasy environments, as you draft your answer.

2. Compare and contrast the issues that Walmart and other large retailers faced when they tried to implement RFID in their supply chains with those that a manufacturing company such as Harley-Davidson will likely face as it moves into RFID implementations with its suppliers.
