Radio Frequency Identification may have begun its life as a tool for the US military, but over the last few years it's really begun to take off as a means for retailers to track inventory throughout the entire supply chain. The technology gives each product, or asset, a unique electronic identifier and makes use of radiowaves to track that tag it may be. Unlike bar codes, RFID does not require individual items to be scanned. Instead, hundreds of items - even still in their boxes - can be tracked and counted all at once.
In this Process Perspectives podcast, Patrick Javick, Vice President of Industry Engagement and James Mannion, Solutions Marketing Director, of global standards agency GS1, discuss Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and describe how US retailers are using it for inventory control and supply chain tracking.
