RFID - The Future Product Tracking Is Here

Logo Monarch RFID RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) uses radio signals emanating from a tag to transmit information for automatically identifying an item. Tags can contain a large amount of data, allowing manufacturers, suppliers and retailers to track and manage assets more efficiently.

Typical Uses

RFID is used today for tracking animals, library books, container locations, building security, auto keyless entry and many more. One of the most visible uses of the technology is for toll collections in heavily populated areas (often called "EZ Pass" or something similar). An RFID transmitter is placed on the vehicle of the subscriber. The transmitter is "read" as the vehicle passes by the toll area, automatically identifying the vehicle and debiting the owner's account.

Supply Chain Benefits

RFID has received much publicity over the past several years as a complementary technology to bar codes. It is an especially attractive technology for supply chain applications:
bulletTags can be read without contact and/or line-of-sight (do not have to see a tag to read it)
bulletRFID readers can differentiate and read multiple items simultaneously
bulletRFID tags can be updated with new information as items pass through the supply chain (read/write capabilities)
bulletThe potential cost savings for supply chain applications include:
bulletReduce safety stock inventory requirements
bulletReduce labor requirements (receiving, inventory, etc.)
bulletImprove inventory “shrink” problems
bulletImprove visibility of assets, as they move through the supply chain

Open Issues with Implementation

Despite all the hype, many open issues with the technology remain. Until these issues are resolved, widespread implementation is not anticipated. Major issues to be resolved include:
bulletLack of standards for the data structures to be used with RFID.
bulletRFID labels and tags are cost-prohibitive for many applications.
bulletTag size is dependent on the read range desired, making tags too large for small item marking.
bulletSoftware infrastructures are largely undeveloped and support multiple technologies with no standardization.
bulletVarious frequencies provide various costs, ranges, read-rates, and reader requirements, leading to confusion.
bulletConsumer groups have expressed concern over the potential (real or imagined) privacy invasion that would result with widespread RFID item marking.

Recent Updates

Several large retailers and consumer goods manufacturers have announced plans to use RFID for a variety of applications. Of particular importance to the retail supply chain is Wal-Mart’s announcement that they will require their top 100 suppliers to be RFID compliant, at the pallet and carton level, by the year 2005.

The UCC (Uniform Code Council) is working to standardize data structures, based on the EPC (Electronic Product Code), and has taken over the management of Auto ID center from MIT. The new organization is called EPCglobal, and its mission is to commercialize RFID.

With Wal-Mart’s requirements, there is increased focus at UCC to publish standards by 4th quarter, 2004. With standards in place, there will be clear direction for companies to invest in the technology to drive down cost and overcome the major issues.
