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.
: key components of any RFID system. Understanding the properties, capabilities, and limitations of each tag type will assist in the solution design. The tags currently in use within the industry are listed in Table 1, which identifies the five different types of tags and lists their advantages, disadvantages, and common applications. Tag Type Advantages Disadvantages Application Active Greater read range, greater memory capacity, and continuous signal Required battery maintenance, larger battery size, and
The Supply Chain of Sitcoms—Enhanced with Radio Frequency Identification
Imagine what sitcoms like Cheers, Laverne and Shirley, and Green Acres would look like if they were radio frequency identification (RFID) enhanced. Then picture the impact that RFID technology can have on the customer experience in your own enterprise.
: research project to channel surf, and happened upon reruns of Cheers, Laverne and Shirley, and Green Acres. And, since my latest research project is centered around the impact that radio frequency identification (RFID) technology can have upon the customer experience, it was totally logical that I began to imagine what these sitcoms might look like today if they were RFID enhanced . So, sit back, close your eyes, and imagine along with me well, you can t close your eyes and read this at the same time, so
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.
: their contents diffuse the RF signal, causing failed read rates. Such materials as liquids tend to absorb radio waves, while metals tend to deflect and diffract radio waves. Items like water and soup are particularly troublesome, as the liquid and the medium used for its packaging require extensive testing. Items with limited space for label placement require extensive experimentation to find which configuration works best. That is, small products may not have the physical room to accommodate a tag, and
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.
: will transmit the generated RF field. A circularly polarized, ultra high frequency (UHF) antenna—an antenna used by any UHF reader that is attached to a spectrum analyzer to measure the RF field received from the signal generator. A ¼ wave dipole, 915 MHz–antenna and a ground plane plate—an antenna that will radiate an RF field of 360 degrees. Two tripod stands—one stand to mount the antenna, the other to support the UHF antenna outside the interrogation zone. A laptop computer. Procedure Step 1
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.
: been doing it with RF technology for years, and that RFID is yet another format. 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 while in its raw form, regardless of the variety or quantity of product, the data shows no relationship between pallet,
RFID Case Study: Gillette and ProviaPart One: Background
The goal of the pilot project was not to see whether RFID tags on pallets and cases could be read automatically (although one should not assume that it is easy to achieve), but rather to develop or improve the systems and business processes needed to sustain higher levels of efficiency and productivity.

Estimating Acoustic Performance of a Cell Phone
This paper discusses the requirements for coupled structural-acoustic simulation and demonstrates the application of this technology to cell-phoneacoustic design. Due to the smaller volume sizes, the low frequency response of the cell phone is affected. The frequency response rolls off faster at low frequencies when smaller microphone back volumes are used. The present work deals with studying this effect on a simple cell phone model with the finite element package, Abaqus. The results from the simulation can be used to better design cell phone cavities for optimum performance.
