  • Improving Efficiency in the Research Lab With RFID Smart Rooms
    Published May 2013
    Most retailers achieve only about 65 percent inventory accuracy on a given day, which means one-third of all decisions are made based on inaccurate data. Terso Solutions' Keith Hoffman discusses an automated solution called the Smart Stockroom that allows authorized personnel to enter a large storage room, peruse the aisles until finding the required items and then automatically check them out. The checkout process occurs in an instant, whether involving a single product or dozens of complex reagents or chemical products worth thousands of dollars. This item-level RFID tagging system can help retailers overcome many obstacles, pushing inventory accuracy up toward 99 percent. (8 pages)
  • Improving Aircraft Maintenance Management Using RFID
    Published May 2013
    Airlines have been late adopters of advanced inventory-management systems, particularly involving AIDC technologies, since aircraft maintenance management is highly industry-specific, considerably regulated and subject to many complexities not present in other industries. With the recent emergence of the U.S Federal Aviation Administration's regulatory airworthiness criteria for flyable RFID, and the recently agreed-upon interoperability data standards, there is now an opportunity for airlines to achieve short- and long-term wins. This essay, from Laminar Aerospace's Marco Andreacchio, outlines how RFID could support a paperless supply chain strategy, and details many key tangible and nontangible benefits for airlines.

  • RFID: A Competitive Differentiator for Brand Owners and Suppliers
    Published May 2013
    Chain-wide rollouts by a number of North America's largest clothing retailers are a sign that RFID technology will soon be broadly adopted by the industry. This white paper, from SML, provides brand owners and suppliers with a high-level understanding of how RFID can help them. The report outlines key benefits that can be achieved, and how they can be incorporated into the supply chain. (7 pages)

  • Spatially Selective Antenna for Very Close-Proximity HF RFID Applications, Part 1
    Published May 2013
    Zebra Technologies' Boris Y. Tsirline provides background about RFID antenna-transponder interactions, and presents an antenna technique designed to achieve greater discrimination when reading multiple transponders. (18 pages)
  • UHF RFID Antennas for Printer-Encoders, Part 1: System Requirements
    Published May 2013
    In this first of a three-part series, Zebra Technologies' Boris Y. Tsirline presents a detailed overview of RFID encoder systems and the antenna solutions required for reliable writing to individual tags. (21 pages)
  • RFID Omnichannel Superstar
    Published May 2013
    RFID technology is an increasingly important enabler of omnichannel retailing. Especially important to apparel retailers is item-level RFID, in which RFID tags are attached to individual garments. Commonly integrated into a product's hangtag or pricing label, the tags are read by handheld or fixed RFID readers, providing real-time inventory visibility throughout the supply chain. Motorola explains how the system enables store management, sales associates and customers to have accurate, real-time product location and availability data. (13 pages)
  • Transforming the Customer Experience With RFID
    Published May 2013
    Despite the explosion of online choices, customers still value seeing and touching merchandise firsthand, an experience only available to them in a brick-and-mortar store. When retailers add the cutting-edge benefits of radio frequency identification technology to that unique advantage, they help close the all-too-common gaps in service, information and inventory of traditional retail, and open greater opportunities for sales and customer satisfaction. Motorola explains how RFID empowers retailers, elevating shopping into an enriching and positive experience. (9 pages)
  • The Explosion of Retail Item-Level RFID: A Foundation for the Retail Revolution
    Published April 2013
    This white paper, authored by ChainLink Research's Bill McBeath in collaboration with Tagsys, provides a comprehensive overview of what to look for in an end-to-end item-level inventory implementation. It uses Tagsys' holistic system approach, with its FiTS integrated hardware and software offering, as well as real-world experiences from retailers and logistics suppliers, such as Port Logistics Group, to outline best practices for deploying a system that maximizes the benefits of RFID-based inventory management.
