Simply, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is similar to bar code technology but uses radio waves to capture data from tags rather than optically scanning the bar codes on a label.
In an RFID card system that uses an electronic product code (EPC) or similar numbering scheme, the following RFID attributes lead to these kinds of savings:
- Serialized data: Every object in the supply chain has a unique identifying number.
- Reduced human intervention: RFID allows tracking automatically without needing people to count or capture data or scan bar codes, which means reduced labour costs and fewer errors.
- Higher throughput supply chains: RFID allows many items to be counted simultaneously.
- Real-time information flow: As soon as an item changes state (off the shelf, out of a truck, sold to a customer), the information can be updated across the supply chain.
- Increased item security: Printing and tagging items allow them to be tracked inside a confined facility or space.
