Abstract: The purpose of this MBA project is to determine how effective the use of RFID and IUID can be in Marine Corps armories based on operating procedures, support of key organizations within the Departments of the Navy and the Marine Corps, and current research. This project's first objective is to examine the involvement, progress and procedures of organizations that are involved in supporting and improving the Marine Corps armory processes. The second objective is to explore the feasibility of implementing RFID and/or UID technology into the current Marine Corps small arms tracking system based on current research. The researchers will determine feasibility and compatibility by examining the existing organizations, current business processes and information technology systems. The third objective is to examine the current research about the use of RFID and UID technology with small arms. The final objective is to provide recommendations for implementation of these technologies in the Marine Corps armory system.
