RFID Case Study: HP and Wal-Mart
HP is making strides in complying with Wal-Mart's RFID mandates. This article describes the key lessons learned.

rfid tagging  and consistent reads using RFID with products containing metals and liquids, which interfere with the RF signal. HP has been confronting these challenges in their Chester, VA plant in the tagging of their inkjet cartridges, which contain both liquid and metal and are wrapped in foil. By experimenting with the placement of the tag on the carton, HP learned that if there was a gap between the cartridge and the place on the carton where the tag was attached, the company could avoid interference problems.

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.
