Smart Technology Group Offers RFID Simulation

Smart Technology Group has announced that it is working with Cempel Consulting to offer an RFID simulation service designed to provide a visual representation of RFID technology benefits.

The simulation offering employs computer animation and precise calculation to help illustrate whether RFID is worth considering, according to Smart Technology Group. "I have been dealing with RFID technology for eight years and for many times I have seen how retail representatives are skeptical about RFID," said Karolina Kozlowska, the company's CEO, in a prepared statement. "This is why we put so many efforts into educational activities that raise awareness about RFID. We write reports and publications, publish movies and presentations. But now we have completely new and quite powerful tool."

The simulation tool's key function is to visualize all benefits from implementing RFID for retail. Based on discrete event manufacturing simulation software supplied by FlexSim Software Products, the tool can easily compare how much time and how many warehouse employees, for example, are required to perform a full inventory or complete shipping processes. The tool uses actual data—number of employees, warehouse dimensions, carrying capacity, number of pallets—to make calculations. As a result, the company says, it is possible to generate objective comparisons and clearly determine whether an RFID implementation bring benefits. If RFID will deliver benefits, the solution can also determine how many minutes can be saved in every process, or how many employees could be delegated to other duties.

Smart Technology Group's experts will prepare the scheme of an optimal RFID system, the company reports. "Our newest offer has indisputable potential to be the final and most convincing case for introducing RFID," Kozlowska said in the statement. "We can generate real numbers that will support the decision if implementing this wireless technology. And you cannot argue with numbers."
