A How-to Guide for a Radio Frequency Identification Site Survey
As organizations prepare for a radio frequency identification (RFID) implementation, they often don't understand the preliminary work necessary to begin the

A circularly polarized, ultra high frequency (UHF) antenna—an antenna used by any UHF reader that is attached to a spectrum analyzer to measure the RF field received from the signal generator. A ¼ wave dipole, 915 MHz–antenna and a ground plane plate—an antenna that will radiate an RF field of 360 degrees. Two tripod stands—one stand to mount the antenna, the other to support the UHF antenna outside the interrogation zone. A laptop computer. Procedure Step 1

RFID Case Study: Gillette and Provia Part Two: Challenges and Lessons Learned


Compliance with the market RFID mandate has unfortunately preceded the achievements of applied physics and computer science. One of the main obstacles is the lack of integration, since there is a dearth of software tools from enterprise application integration vendors to get data from RFID tags and readers into existing business systems, meaning that companies are often forced to do expensive custom integration work.

The above examples show only a part of the required verifications and additional business logic that RFID deployment may demand. While an additional software layer might help with verifying and reconciling inconsistencies and overflowing or missing data, it is apparent that RFID imposes quite a more complex data manipulation. This is Part Two of a two-part Case Study. Part One provided Background and Set the Goals. Auxiliary Read More

At Last-A Complete (and Successful) RFID Implementation


A radio frequency identification implementation is a major undertaking for any organization—a project with ample risk of failure. This entire series is a step-by-step guide to the process, with this final part including a comprehensive glossary of key terms for better understanding.

rf reader  : Radio frequency identification. RF : Radio frequency. SA : Spectrum analysis ; refers to a range of values of a quantity or of a set of related quantities. Measurements of radio waves and the frequency emitted. Signal generator : A device that produces RF signals at preset frequencies, strengths, and durations. This will be hooked up to a ¼ wave dipole antenna via a coaxial cable; it will transmit the generated RF field. Smart label : This is a label that contains an RFID tag. It is considered Read More

Radio Frequency Identification Implementation: The First Steps


Phase one of the four phase approach to a successful radio frequency identification implementation consists of several essential steps, including the careful selection of business partners and the development of a test environment and corrective label placement procedures.

rf reader  their contents diffuse the RF signal, causing failed read rates. Such materials as liquids tend to absorb radio waves, while metals tend to deflect and diffract radio waves. Items like water and soup are particularly troublesome, as the liquid and the medium used for its packaging require extensive testing. Items with limited space for label placement require extensive experimentation to find which configuration works best. That is, small products may not have the physical room to accommodate a tag, and Read More

RFID--A New Technology Set to Explode? Part One: RFID Technology


For retailers and the other vertical industries, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags present enormous opportunities to improve supply chain operations, since real-time inventory control, tracking, and alerting capabilities could be very important advantages of RFID. As tagged inventory goes through ports, terminals, freight forwarders, and into a distribution center, the RFID tag should provide near real-time visibility of an item's whereabouts at all times.

To facilitate this dual mode of operation, RedPrairie has integrated RFID functionality with traditional processing so that distribution operations are independent of the data capture source, which should enable customers to take early advantage of RFID benefits, such as increased inventory visibility and accuracy, reduced labor costs and faster cycle times, without disrupting existing operations. Finally, as RFID technology matures, it will Read More

Can You Hear Me Now: The True Role of Voice-directed Picking in Warehouse Management


Although voice-directed picking may take distributors to higher logistics levels someday, operations managers should try listening to their warehouse personnel for now. Warehouse workers are the real experts on a company's warehouse, its product, and its customer.

An operator driving a forklift into a rack because he or she was looking at a screen, or a picker inadvertently walking into product for the same reason are just a couple examples of accidents that can be avoided. Eyes-free is also a significant feature because most picking errors happen in RF and paper environments when the device is being returned to the holster. For Read More
