RFID White Papers


RFID Pilot Program - Rockwell Automation

While it isn’t a new technology, radio frequency identification (RFID) has recently become a hot topic among manufacturers, particularly consumer segment product companies. The technology was catapulted to the forefront by Wal-Mart’s mandate requiring its top 100 suppliers to use RFID tags on cases and pallets of consumer goods shipped to its distribution centers and stores by January 2005.

Managing Mobile Resources - RedPrairie

Over the past 18 months, there has been increasing interest in RFID, much of it fueled by Wal-Mart and the Department of Defense who have mandated their suppliers to begin placing RFID tags on products shipped to them starting January of 2005. This has caused a flurry of activity as these suppliers scramble to understand what RFID is and who they should partner with in developing RFID-based supply chain solutions for compliance mandates.

Evolution or Revolution? - PSC Inc.

It seems you can’t pick up a business magazine or technical journal these days without headlines screaming out news about the next technology revolution. More often than not, the “revolutionary” change either doesn’t happen at all, or eventually shows up as a costly evolutionary nuisance you weren’t prepared for, but wish you had been.

Mobile & Wireless Technology in Food Retailing - PSC Inc.

The Food Retailing segment of retail is in a state of rapid change. Overbuilding of stores has led to consolidations in the industry, and the labor pool is shrinking. The consumer is changing, expecting the best price and good service, but has limited time to shop. Threats abound from competitors, such as mass merchant supercenters, restaurants, and home shopping or “E-Retailing.”

Radio frequency identification (RFID) at HP - Hewlett Packard

Although radio frequency identification (RFID) has been used since World War II, employing it to track physical objects is a recent development. Only since the 1990s has the potential of RFID to expedite the operation of supply chains and increase visibility into them been recognized. Thus, standards for its widespread global use in that arena are only now under development. Adding urgency to the development of those standards are recent directives by Wal-Mart and the U.S. Department of Defense that their top suppliers begin RFID-tagging goods starting in January 2005.

The key to maximizing the return on your RFID investment - Oracle

There is no doubt that RFID technology–and other sensor-based technologies–presents massive potential for creating competitive advantage. Incorporating these technologies into your information infrastructure and integrating them into your business processes provides substantial business benefit. They let you more accurately track assets, monitor key indicators, and automate business processes, giving you greater visibility into your operations and allowing you to make better decisions based on real-time information. But, to realize maximum return on your investment, you need to strategically leverage your information architecture.

SATO RFID White Paper - Sato America Inc.

This white paper describes the basic components of a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system and explores the technology, applications, and competitive advantages of RFID technology and its uses for Automatic Identification Data Collection (AIDC).

RFID in the Supply Chain: A Balanced View - Hewlett Packard

RFID (radio frequency identification) is essentially in the same position occupied by mobility and wireless technology a few years ago. It is poised to spark a global revolution—in supply chain visibility and management. This paper provides an overview of the business drivers leading companies are assessing to determine if improvements and efficiencies in the supply chain can be achieved using RFID technology. It is a guide to understanding RFID, RFID drivers and the best situations in which to implement RFID. It also helps with quantification processes for current and desired states in your business and suggests practical approaches and remedies to barriers that may occur.
