The finalists, selected by an independent panel of judges, will each have 15 minutes to make a presentation. The finalists are: Decathlon, for its use of RFID tags on 90 percent of the products it sells, and for adopting RFID technology in every one of its 43 DCs and 1,030 stores to improve on-shelf availability and reduce shrink; Delta Air Lines, for its pioneering use of RFID to streamline aircraft maintenance and reduce the time required to ensure every seat on every plane has an oxygen canister and that none have reached their expiration dates; Shimane University Hospital – for its use of RFID to reduce the cost of managing 20,000 surgical instruments.
