Parma's RFID Lab Extends Logistics Pilot to the Manufacturer
For its third logistics pilot, the University of Parma laboratory is tracking perishable food from the manufacturer's warehouse to the retailer's point of sale.
The EPCIS software can provide alerting to notify store employees when they should bring additional product to the shelf, based on the POS data collected. The software knows how many items have been placed on the shelf, based on the tag reads at the trash compactor, and the number sold, thanks to the POS information. In that way, it can calculate, for example, that only three items are on the shelf—a pre-set threshold that would then indicate more goods need to be retrieved from the backroom and placed onto the shelf. In so doing, the store is able to reduce the occurrence of unstocked shelves, which can decrease sales.
The RFID read data is also being shared with Danone, so that the manufacturer can view when its products were delivered to a particular location, and when they are being placed onto store shelves. In that way, the company can anticipate more orders.
The pilot utilizes a combination of Motorola FX-9500 and Impinj Speedway Revolution R420 fixed readers at the stores and DC, Rizzi reports. The DC's staff are also equipped with Motorola MC3190-Z handheld interrogators, enabling them to resolve any read discrepancies.
