Authentic Feet Manages Nike Stock via RFID

The sports shoe manufacturer ships products with radio frequency identification tags already attached, which has automated 60 percent of the store's inventory management.

"The project aims to extend to all Authentic Feet branches, initially with Nike products, thanks to the use of state-of-the-art technology not only in shoes, but also in logistics process, with their representatives," Gambim states. "Currently, the RFID process is well adjusted for receiving and inventory."

Nike sends invoices in XML format, and the Authentic Feet system, integrated with iTagAlert 2.0, completes the receipt via an RFID reader. The solution points out any divergences and forwards that information so stock can be managed in real time. The inventory-management process uses Zebra Technologies' 8500 RFID reader, integrated with an enterprise resource planning system and iTagAlert 2.0, which selects the products to be localized.

"Because RFID codes are unique, we can do the deal smoothly by pointing out all divergences and what is missing in the sales area," Xambre says. "The next step will be to use RFID tags to make sales and transfers between branches via RFID, thus making management much better and more agile."

The tags utilize Monza R6 chips from Impinj. In addition to the 8500 RFID reader, Zebra is also providing its ZD500r interrogator.
