RFID Case Studies Cyril Ovely CTO Vxceed Technologies FZ LLC

2 Agenda RFID Technology adoption issues Case Studies
Solution Architecture Vxceed

3 RFID adoption issues- Reliability
Tags not robust, reliable and tamperproof = savings disappear Concurrency Tag alignment Read rates Fixing of tags Nature of product and packaging Environment

4 RFID adoption issues- IT cost
True cost of adoption is not so apparent at first. Cost of ERP upgrades, Integration both EAI and partner integration, server and network infrastructure, data management, setup and management of distributed reader network Who pays?

5 RFID adoption issues- ROI
Some Positive ROI industries and application areas: apparel retail, automobile, Parma, CPG suppliers. Retailers (Apparel) Improve Customer service Decrease top-line losses (5-15%) Locate mislaid products, deter theft Personalized sales pitches in dressing room kiosks Decrease checkout labor

6 RFID adoption issues- ROI
CPG suppliers Visibility of inventory and raw material flows reduce costs Warehouse labor costs reduction through efficient receiving, shipping and exception handling Vendor managed inventory to reduce stock out and inventory costs Products tagged in factories can be tracked in supply-chain

7 Case Studies

8 Pastalini Foods Pasta manufacturing and repackaging Goals
Real time visibility of inventory and Raw materials Automated receiving and shipping Location of SKU’s in warehouse Fork lift drivers are to be guided in picking and placement. (FIFO) Full integration with ERP system

9 Pastalini Foods Pilot tagging of pallets is sufficient but do we have a strong business case, ROI? Problem area split into two parts Warehouse receiving, put-away and picking Real time inventory Pilot project involved tagging of all warehouse locations with tags embedded into floor and fork lift mounted reader and mounted wireless PDT with barcode scanner.
