  • 1. What is RFID? RFID(Radio Frequency Identification) is a technology that allows automatic identification of objects, animals or people. RFID is not just a better bar code Capabilities More data, greater accuracy, automated delivery Line of sight not required Reads 1000’s of items simultaneously Benefits Improved accuracy, visibility, operational efficiency and security Opportunities to quantify processes and map improvements Opportunities for exception based management
  • 2. RFID Components Tag : It is a transponder that is made up of an integrated antenna and an electronic circuit. The information can be written and rewritten on a tag. The ID written on the tag is known as the EPC (Electronic Product Code). Reader : An RFID reader is a device that is used to interrogate an RFID tag. The reader has an antenna that emits radio waves; the tag responds by sending back its data Host Computer : It reads/writes data from/to the tags through the reader. It stores and evaluates obtained data and links the transceiver to applications. Tag RFID Reader Host Computer

  • 5. The Development of RFID From World War II to your corner shop Like the internet, RFID has its roots in the military. During the Second World War, a crude form of this radio wave based technology was used to distinguish enemy planes from friendly aircraft. But like the Internet, RFID has left its military history behind, becoming a cutting-edge technology which is widely used by the private sector and consumers. RFID has the potential to transform the way we live and work – just as the invention of electricity and telecommunications did in the late 19th century. Revived in MIT
  • 6. RFID – What is it? Radio Frequency Identification Device Holds a small amount of unique data – a serial number or other unique attribute of the item The data can be read from a distance – no contact or even line of sight necessary Enables individual items to be individually tracked from manufacture to consumption!
  • 7. An RFID infrastructure consists of four basic components Tags • Active or passive • Usually attached to specific items Antenna • Receives and transmits the radio frequency signals Reader Host Computer • Communicates • Stores and evaluates with the tag obtained data & links to an application e.g. ERP 9
  • 8. Passive RFID Tags No power supply "on board“ Transponder reflects/modulates radio signal from reader Shorter read range Lifetime not limited by energy source The field allows the chip/antenna to reflect back an extremely weak signal containing the data The data sent by the reader is modulated and backscattered from the tags at range. Price : 10 to 30 cents
  • 9. Active Tags Own energy source (e.g. battery) Transponder transmits radio signal Higher read range Cost between $20 and $40 per item Life between 2 – 4 years

  • 17. Views on the Value of RFID Labour Cost Savings Accenture estimates, as reported in Lacy (2005), that the savings in receipt is 6.5%, while 100% of the labour in physical inventory count could be eliminated. Inventory Reduction Economist (2003) cites IBM’s estimates to be at 5 to 25%, Shrinkage and Out-of-Stock Reduction First, by having visibility so that the inventory record corresponds closer to actual inventory, replenishment can be more accurate, leading to fewer stock outs. Second, the ability to accurately monitor inventory can reduce the process failures, prevent misplacements, and avoid frauds,1 leading to a direct reduction of inventory shrinkage. IBM’s estimate (Alexander et al. 2002) is that shrinkage can reduce by 2/3 Lee and O¨ zer: Unlocking the Value of RFID 60 Production and Operations Management 16(1), pp. 40–64, © 2007 Production and Operations Management Society

  • 37. Benefits Achieved by Using RFID •An RFID-enabled location system makes it much easier and more efficient to locate tagged assets, providing visibility for repurposing equipment. • An unused server sitting in one data center, for instance, can be quickly deployed to another site that needs it right away, in order to get a project going. Knowing immediately which server is available, and its exact location, saves Companies the cost of having to purchase a new system. • It also provides up-to-the-minute data regarding when a device is decommissioned and leaves an organization. •Inventory time reduced from months to less than a week •Increased accuracy, security and visibility •Reduced man power •Inventory accuracy of 99.2%, leading to loss rate of less than 1 %
