Summary
Many companies have asked suppliers to begin using RFID (radio frequency identification) tags by 2006RFID allows pallets and products to be scanned at a greater distance and with less effort than barcode scanning, offering superior supply-chain management efficienciesThis unique plain-English resource explains RFID and shows CIOs, warehouse managers, and supply-chain managers how to implement RFID tagging in products and deploy RFID scanning at a warehouse or distribution centerCovers the business case for RFID, pilot programs, timelines and strategies for site assessments
