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.

RFID Workbench: Understanding the Basics
Radio frequency identification (RFID) helps actualize the perfect integration of logistical and commercial chains and its use is rising in the US and Europe

rfid tagging  necessary to describe every RFID event. How do the transponder and the reader communicate? When a transponder goes through a specific electric field created by the reader, the transponder detects the signal and starts to send the data stored from the transponder to the reader. The signal generated by the reader usually supplies id data, and a sufficient amount of energy for the transponder's supply. Can a transponder be read through any type of material? Yes, it can be read through almost any type of Read More
When will RFID Hit Main Street?
The desire for improved visibility, tracking, etc. stands out as a critical issue to global firms. Most firms don't know how to get started. But as the cultural

rfid tagging  can inhibit or accelerate RFID technology adoption and market growth. Inhibitors First, there are manufacturing constraints on Gen2. All the leaders in this space have some kind of manufacturing process, technology, or capacity constraint. We expect that it will take a year or slightly more to be able to ramp up to meet the potential demand of the worldwide 100,000 plus firms who will be tagging cartons. Shortages in trained, experienced RFID professionals who know the art and science of implementation. Read More
The Three Rs of RFID: Rewards, Risk, and ROI
Prominent organizations and retailers, such as Walmart and the US Department of Defense are taking advantage of radio frequency identification, which promises

rfid tagging  workload required to make RFID effective at the product level. Reaping the rewards will require a large investment in computing power, bandwidth, storage, IT operations, and administration per store. Product level tagging does not always work : Current tags do not transmit well on certain products, such as liquids or metals. This limits the overall benefit of RFID until the problem can be resolved. Complexity and required investment levels : RFID implementation is complex in all ways: process Read More
RFID--A New Technology Set to Explode? Part Two: Early Adopters, Challenges, and User Recommendations
Radio frequency identification or RFID has a potential of becoming a new technology inflection point. It can be a missing piece in the long-lasting puzzle of

rfid tagging  have live implementations of RFID tagging using new EPCs ( electronic product codes , which can transmit significantly more useful data than UPC's), with a mandate to its top one hundred suppliers to provide RFID tags on cases and pallets at DCs, followed by item-level tagging at a much later, unspecified date. In theory, EPCs on RFID tags should be easier and quicker to read than barcodes, since there is supposedly no need to unpack pallets to check contents, as RFID readers do not require line-of-sight Read More
