Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Radio frequency identification (RFID) criteria cover tags and storage devices, readers, wireless hubs and servers, and the middleware necessary for evaluating an RFID system deployment. RFID systems are used in different situations that require the tracking of unique items. RFID tags, in the context of enterprise resource planning and supply chain management, make items visible from manufacturing through distribution. RFID tags may be used to carry basic information such as an address, to more complex information used at different stages of an assembly line.

Are You Tuned into Radio Frequency Identification?

This article examines the organizational fit of radio frequency identification (RFID) and its technology’s basic mechanics. Its prohibitive costs often account for the decision to not implement RFID. Yet some factors influencing adoption may shed new light on why RFID is important.

rfid antenna reader  will be explored below. RFID Mechanics Within RFID, everything starts with the tag. The tag has a computer chip that is programmed with information that uniquely identifies each item. Information is exchanged when the tag is activated. Tags and readers each contain antennae because of the radio interaction they require. The antenna attaches to the integrated circuit (IC) to absorb and emit signals. RFID is a means of uniquely identifying an object through a radio link. A reader, also called an interrogato Read More

How RFID Technology Can Enhance Your Asset Management Program

Even though the technology has been around in some form since World War II, chances are that you think of Wal-Mart’s supply chain initiative when you hear the words “radio frequency identification,” or “RFID.” Wal-Mart is already seeing a return on their 2005 investment. But does RFID technology make as much sense for asset management as for supply chain management?

rfid antenna reader  How Rfid Technology Works RFID technology consists of two basic components: a tag (or transponder ) that is afixed to the asset being monitored, and a reader (an antenna and transceiver). When the reader transmits a signal in a speciic radio frequency, the tag is activated and sends the data back to the reader. The reader passes information to the control system, but also can write information back to the tag. RFID tags are described as passive or active. A passive tag is one that does not contain a 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.

Electronic Product Code (EPC): A Key to RFID

The real benefits of radio frequency identification will be achieved, when the integration of the EPC data will be a substantial part for the control of supply chain business processes.

rfid antenna reader  (EPC): A Key to RFID Introduction In simple terms, the electronic product code (EPC) is a unique number that identifies a specific item in the supply chain by linking serial numbers to the product information stored in a central database, and which is stored on a radio frequency identification (RFID) tag. Once it is retrieved from the tag, it can be associated with dynamic data such as where an item originated or the date of its production. Users of EPC codes will have to purchase the numbers from EPCglob Read More

Leveraging Technology to Maintain a Competitive Edge During Tough Economic Times--A Panel Discussion Analyzed Part Four: RFID Software Issues

Logically, radio frequency identification (RFID) deployment will be a far cry from a minor development project that can be completed in a few months or weeks. It will take months and years to assess how RFID will affect manufacturing and shipping operations and IT systems. It will take time to bring software up to a pilot stage, and after that, years of fine-tuning and IT system development will be needed to fully realize the gains in operational efficiency that the technology promises.
