RFID Background

RFID
  • Radio Frequency Identification
  • Automatic Data Capture
  • Uses RF to communicate
  • Basic Elements
  • Tags
  • Readers/Antennas
  • Host CPU

5
Tag reading
The black spot
Reader Tx typically 1W, 6dB gain Antenna But
propagation loss, resulting Rx at Tag typically
µW On tag, RF energy used for DC power and
modulation More loss back to Reader Rx Therefore
a very weak reply is obtained
6
RFID Systems
  • Tags
  • Attached to objects or items
  • Contains electronics (chip), and antenna
  • Most are passive (no power source)
  • Active tags have a battery
  • Readers
  • Contains electronics, Tx, Rx and control
  • Connected to antenna(s), mostly external
  • Energise tags (passive tags)
  • Commands tags (wake up active tags, enables
    management of the tag population)
  • Receive tag replies

Examples

Host CPU
  • Application
  • Do something with the tag information
  • Potential to generate massive amounts of data
  • Once installed it costs virtually NOTHING to read
    a tag!
  • Real time data gt real time decisions
  • OHIO (Zero Human Involvement Operations)
  • Term defined by John Greaves, CHEP International

Regulatory Standards
39
UHF
  • The UHF tags will be able to be read by readers
    operating within 860 960 MHz range.
  • The readers will be restricted to a small subset
    of this range depending on where in the world
    they are being operated.
  • There are also regulations on the amount of power
    emitted by the readers depending on where the
    readers are being used.
  • Therefore, a tag may be applied to an item and
    shipped anywhere in the world, but a reader has
    to be specifically set up for the region or
    country

44
Implementation Plan
45
Implementation Plan
  • Define your RFID implementation metrics
  • Compliance
  • Reduce Inventory
  • Stock Visibility
  • Reduce Costs
  • Increase asset utilisation
  • Reduce shrinkage
  • Reduce/eliminate shipping errors
  • Consider existing infrastructure
  • Vendors
  • Customers

46
Plan Cont
  • Investigate world standards ISO or EPC
  • Choose frequency of operation
  • 13.56 (HF) or 860 to 960 MHz (UHF)
  • Extensive pilot or test plan
  • Develop assessment criteria for solution
    providers
  • Minimise scope creep!

47
Business case ROI
  • Create a cross functional team
  • Senior Executives from manufacturing, operations,
    packaging, warehouse management, security and
    finance
  • Educate the Team
  • Real RFID performance and expectations
  • Leverage the data, both internally amongst
    operational departments, but eventually with
    outside trading partners

Source The Road to ROI, RFID Journal Mar 2005
48
Business case ROI Cont
  • Identify the problems and opportunities
  • Resolve issues
  • Change to processes, packaging etc
  • Define the scope of the RFID deployment
  • Concentrate on which macro-level problem will
    deliver the most benefits to the organisation
  • List factors within the companys control that
    contribute to that macro-level problem
  • Narrow the scope, maybe by region, department or
    area.
  • Consider pallet level rather than case or item

49
Business case ROI Cont
  • Analyse operations and processes
  • Itemise the business processes, quantifying
    processes
  • Breakdown all processes, not just the clearly
    inefficient ones
  • Prioritise Projects
  • Could end up with 5 to 7 RFID projects
  • Can the same RFID infrastructure be used for more
    than 1 project?
  • Related projects most likely to deliver results

50
Business case ROI Cont
  • Assess financial impact
  • Benefits as well as costs
  • Tag and Reader costs
  • Installation (power, comms, antenna
    infrastructure)
  • Operational Costs
  • Impact of other projects
  • Other projects may add to the benefits and yet
    reduce costs

51
Business case ROI Cont
  • Sensitivity Analysis
  • Cost of components, tags, reader etc.
  • Mandates
  • Revisit the business case regularly
  • As with any plan, review and re-evaluation is key
    to its success
  • Report progress

61
Gradual Ramp-Up
  • Tagging philosophy changes over time.
  • Tag_at_ship, No Integration with IT Systems
  • Slap Ship, incur cost but no benefit!
  • Tag_at_ship, WMS Export and Offline System
  • Good for low volume, offline system minimises IT
  • Tag_at_ship, Semi-automated WMS Integration
  • Online integration with WMS, but manual
    operations for some tagging steps, i.e.
    programming, application /or verification
  • Tag_at_pick/Tag_at_receive
  • Verify at ship
  • Tag_at_source
  • Verify at receive, pick, ship
  • Tag_at_vendor
  • mandate

  • Identity associated with a transaction, even if
    paying with cash
  • Inventory
  • Reading the tags/hence items on your person
  • Location
  • Identifying the location of tagged objects
  • Preference
  • Marketers generating a profile based on tagged
    goods

FIP
  • Fair Information Practices
  • Origins back to 1973
  • 4 Principles
  • Notice
  • Choice
  • Access
  • Security

84
Privacy Issues
  • However, FIP does not go far enough for RFID
  • Several High Profile RFID trials/tests had to be
    withdrawn
  • Benetton
  • The InClass RFID system deployed in and local
    school in Sutter, California
  • In 2003 Marks Spencer
  • Consulted multiple groups
  • Addressed concerns BEFORE deployment

85
Privacy
  • Develop a Privacy Policy and ENFORCE IT!
  • Engage consumer groups BEFORE implementation
  • Educate Users
  • Adverts, Pamphlets, Posters, Internet, Toll free
    line.
  • Disclose the use of RFID
  • Tags and Readers
  • Not only the tagged goods, but also the presence
    of readers
  • Consumer acceptance of reader locations
  • But if hidden readers are used, consumer trust
    could be shattered!
  • EPCglobal Logo
  • More printed info on the label
  • Web address for more information

86
Privacy Cont
  • Inform on the Use of RFID
  • Even if you are not using RFID, but goods, boxes
    etc may come into your facility, tell the
    consumer.
  • Educate/Inform Staff
  • Management
  • Public relations
  • Store personal, in contact with consumers
  • Direct to customer service or website
  • Dont write personally identifiable information
    to the TAG
  • Contradiction of FIP
  • Illegal under the European Unions Directive on
    Privacy and Electronic Communication

87
Privacy Cont
  • Secure the data and limit what you collect
  • Apply the same level of security to EPC data as
    one would apply to any customer data.
  • Avoid associating the EPC number with the person
    purchasing the item.
  • No clear benefit in knowing what unique item is
    being purchased by an individual

88
Privacy Cont
  • Choice
  • Kill or remove
  • Dont tie returns to having an active (working)
    tag
  • Still have discounts and participate in loyalty
    programs, even if they choose to kill the tag.
  • Opt in or Opt out
  • Do consumers opt in , or do they have to opt out.
    Opt in is safer as the consumer has made a
    positive choice
  • Consumer to have the right to view any
    information stored about them.
  • Correct if wrong, or delete
  • Consumers to have the right to choose to share
    that information with 3rd Parties

89
Privacy Cont
  • Keep Privacy policy up to date
  • Reflect changes in technology, processes
  • Reassess the communication strategy to keep
    consumers informed

90
Champion
  • Approval from the TOP
  • Realistic Expectations
  • Start small but think big
  • Small enable fine adjustments (experiment)
  • Big so as to leverage RFID throughout the
    business
  • Dont oversell
  • External/Internal expertise
  • Partner with both suppliers and customers
  • Possible change to business processes
  • Other infrastructure
  • Sensors, EAS, anti-counterfeit, engineering
  • Periodic assessment

91
