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.

ROI for RFID: A Case Study Part One: Company Background


Radio frequency identification (RFID) is the latest buzzword in the world of manufacturing and distribution technology. If you believe the press releases, it is a panacea and cure-all for what ails the industry. While RFID may not solve world hunger, you may not want to propose a solution without it. This research note looks at a recent and successful, implementation of RFID, examining the characteristics of the process and common obstacles and speed bumps to avoid.

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 project. The importance of a site survey can influence the success or failure of an RFID project.

Relocate the directional antenna to each of the 8 positions in increments of 0, 45, 90, 135, etc. degrees in a clockwise manner, and record the signal strength at each frequency with relation to 45-degree increments. These results will indicate where the strongest signal strength is propagated through, and will determine where the best placement for the antenna is. Figure 1. Read More

Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold Manner Part Two: RFID Compliance


Provia's approach to radio frequency identification (RFID) compliance was to offer a bolt-on or drop-in product that works in conjunction with a company's existing logistics transactional software solution and process flows. This should put the suppliers back into control of prioritizing their IT projects because they could supposedly thereby be fairly easily and quickly made compliant with Wal-Mart or the DoD requirements for RFID. The next step for them would then be to look at how they can reap the benefits of RFID internally within their own operations.

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.

Active Execution Management--Delivering on the RFID Promise


Active Execution Management captures radio frequency identification (RFID) and electronic product code (EPC) data and integrates it into the supply chain business process. AXM associates individual EPC events (the observation of an EPC tag at an RFID reader) with the supply chain transaction that is currently being executed and then determines if that supply chain transaction is executing as planned. AXM is able to make this determination by comparing key performance indicators of the supply chain transaction with the characteristics of the EPC event. The paper describes multiple business cases, such as promotions management, deductions management, complex international shipments, and spoilage management, and shows how RFID data can be leveraged to improve supply chain performance.
