Scalability Is Key to RFID Compliance

When working to meet RFID compliance mandates, it is important to implement a scalable solution that not only satisfies today's needs, but also allows for future growth.

What's more, multiple read points may be required to track the movement of products throughout the facility. The verification of tagged products by RFID systems provides full traceability from manufacturer to retailer. This provides assurance that a product has been shipped and delivered.

Automation: There is a strong similarity between bar-code labeling and RFID tagging in automated material-handling applications. Both processes apply to objects moving on a conveyor, and both may be able to support a multi-product mix.



The key to success lies not only in applying tags properly, but also in understanding and controlling the flow of products through the process. Proper tagging requires verification that the correct tag has been applied to each object. Edgeware is the critical component in verifying the proper placement of tags.

Integration: Once the optimum solution has been chosen and a process is in place, it is easy to assume that the job is complete. In reality, however, only half the work is done. Now it is time to implement the solution.

The challenge is to integrate the RFID system into the facility seamlessly with the least amount of disruption. To minimize problems and downtime, it is important to work with a company that has experience in working with both material-handling hardware and IT integration.
