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.

rf antenna  respond to an interrogating RF signal with simple identifying information, or with more complex signals depending on the size of the integrated circuit. RFID has advantages over bar codes such as the ability to hold more data and to change the stored data as processing occurs. Additional benefits are that RFID does not require line-of-sight to transfer data and is very effective in harsh environments where bar code labels simply won''t work. In a nutshell, RFID can transmit more information with Read More

What You Should Know Before Selecting a WMS


Before an important game, you create a game plan. Before you start building a house, you have a blueprint. And before you start looking at a warehouse management system (WMS), you must define how you want your warehouse to be organized and function. This article looks at basic warehouse strategies that need to be understood to ensure that the WMS software effectively and efficiently supports the activities of the warehouse, now and in the future. This is not to say that you will not consider the best practices of the new

rf antenna  that the cost of RF is not just in the readers, the antenna systems, collection points, and labeling. It is also in training and procedural changes. Assuming that a cost-justification case has been made for RF, you must decide what devices are supported by a WMS and how you want to use RF. Essentially, the accepted methods of RF data collection are store-and-forward and real time. The store-and-forward method stores each scan on RF device and transmits to a WMS or intermediate server on an event driven Read More

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.

rf antenna  it for years with RF technology, and that RFID is yet another format. Namely, the process to gather bar code data follows a very structured and straightforward practice, requiring a stock-keeping unit (SKU), case, or pallet to be scanned individually, whereas in an RFID environment, data collection is not such a discrete process. Namely, a bundle of data is collected in one scan, regardless of the variety or quantity of product. While in its raw form, the data shows no relationship between pallet, case, Read More
