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

rfid reader range  to Explode? Part One: RFID Technology RFID Technology Supply chain technology has, for some time, been based on the traditional bar-code technology familiar to ordinary shoppers and consumers, but recently the software capability has been expanded to also use radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. While radio ID tag-enabled software is still just a miniscule part of total supply chain management (SCM) providers' revenues, more and more user companies and software vendors are adopting this

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.

HP expects to ship its entire range of consumer products sold through Wal-Mart many weeks before the January 2005 deadline. At HP's Memphis manufacturing plant, tags are Read More

SAP RFID Technology in the Automotive Industry


By using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, automotive companies can eliminate material shortfalls of containers, which lead to delivery delays and, in the case of time-sensitive shipments, cause production downtime. Manufacturers, suppliers, dealers, and freight forwarders can all benefit by reducing launch and assembly delays resulting from errors in part quantities, types, and locations for containers targeted for production lines.

ROI for RFID: A Case Study Part Two: Implementation and Results


If companies are to find value in radio frequency identification (RFID), they need to view this technology as more than eliminating the scanning gun from the barcode equation. Companies considering implementing RFID must think beyond the confines of the four walls of the plant and factory in order to take full advantage the benefits that this type of technology has to offer. However, as is with any emerging technology, the bottom line is to only implement RFID when the ROI justifies it.
