  • Improving Efficiency in the Research Lab With RFID Smart Rooms
    Published May 2013
    Most retailers achieve only about 65 percent inventory accuracy on a given day, which means one-third of all decisions are made based on inaccurate data. Terso Solutions' Keith Hoffman discusses an automated solution called the Smart Stockroom that allows authorized personnel to enter a large storage room, peruse the aisles until finding the required items and then automatically check them out. The checkout process occurs in an instant, whether involving a single product or dozens of complex reagents or chemical products worth thousands of dollars. This item-level RFID tagging system can help retailers overcome many obstacles, pushing inventory accuracy up toward 99 percent. (8 pages)
  • Improving Aircraft Maintenance Management Using RFID
    Published May 2013
    Airlines have been late adopters of advanced inventory-management systems, particularly involving AIDC technologies, since aircraft maintenance management is highly industry-specific, considerably regulated and subject to many complexities not present in other industries. With the recent emergence of the U.S Federal Aviation Administration's regulatory airworthiness criteria for flyable RFID, and the recently agreed-upon interoperability data standards, there is now an opportunity for airlines to achieve short- and long-term wins. This essay, from Laminar Aerospace's Marco Andreacchio, outlines how RFID could support a paperless supply chain strategy, and details many key tangible and nontangible benefits for airlines.
