Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) is an automatic identification method, relying on storing and remotely retrieving data using devices called RFID tags or transponders. An RFID tag is an object that can be attached to or incorporated into a product, animal, or person for the purpose of identification using radio waves. Chip-based RFID tags contain silicon chips and antennas. Passive tags require no internal power source, whereas active tags require a power source.

Unique serial numbers must now be applied to individual bottles of drugs and the cases that carry them in California, due to new tracking requirements. Read this white paper to learn how the IBM Serialization Pilot Kit with TAGSYS RFID is helping companies achieve compliance in less than a year.
This white paper addresses business and technical decision-makers for ambitious companies in which product distribution and transportation play key roles in daily operations and profitability. It describes how the comprehensive, integrated management solution represented by Supply Chain Execution for Microsoft Dynamics AX can help build an integrated logistics solution.
The CPG manufacturing industry is large and thriving; however, margins are slim and competition is furious. There are hundreds of product categories, and to compete, firms must constantly innovate. How can the small-to-medium CPG manufacturer survive in the face of the same external pressures and fewer resources?
This paper introduces various supply chain concepts and explains their importance. It describes initiatives being undertaken by the largest retailers and reviews what small and mid-size firms need to do to compete.
Network Centric Operations (NCO) recognises the demand for pervasive decision-making in the modern battlespace. NCO provides the ability to leverage information networks to generate a more dynamic and agile decision-making space. An important dimension of this approach is the technological flexibility to quickly move the decision-making authority hierarchically or geographically as the situation demands. A fundamental enabler to this approach is the concept of a services orientated architecture (SOA). The use of industry-standard IT architectures provides the means of ensuring that systems can be provisioned rapidly, can be shared as appropriate, and can give the flexibility and response times required within such challenging environments.
Wherever there is a label on a product, there is a potential need for printer applicators. Download this whitepaper now for a thorough analysis of the complete labeling requirement, from part production to end user application, which must to be completed to determine the correct printer applicator.
This paper includes a comparison between using RFID and barcoding for asset management as well as real-life examples of how RFID technology is being used by enterprising organizations today to gain significant time savings and enable better asset and maintenance management.
It is well known that the adoption of RFID is happening around the globe. But where are the success stories and in which market sectors? One industry that has realized the benefits of RFID technology for several years is the Livestock industry.
Learn how manufacturers today can leverage RFID technology to help them run more efficient operations that help minimize production down time, optimize material and parts inventories, improve and maintain optimal labor output.
Institutional (academic) libraries and public libraries face growing challenges in managing the assets of their collection and maintaining or improving service levels to patrons. Learn how libraries can leverage RFID solutions to save time, reduce cost, and increase productivity.
Barcodes, magnetic stripes, and proximity readers all rely on the user to either make contact or place the badge very close to the reader. In addition, bar codes can only be read one at a time and the respective embedded information cannot be updated. Find out how an RFID access control system can provide an easy and efficient solution.
The applications for the healthcare industry are multiple, including asset tracking, patient tracking, staff location, baby monitoring, blood bank distribution, and more. Learn more in this overview by GAO RFID.
