High-Memory RFID For Aerospace, Manufacturing, MRO And Remote Asset Management
Electronic asset tracking with radio frequency identification (RFID) is now the industry standard for the military, aerospace and retail markets. By Xerafy
White Paper: High-Memory RFID For Aerospace, Manufacturing, MRO And Remote Asset Management
Electronic asset tracking with radio frequency identification (RFID) is now the industry standard for the military, aerospace and retail markets. For situations where an asset does not have guaranteed access to a network or does not want to share information across organizations, high memory tags provide a compelling value proposition.

Lean And Green: It Starts With MRO
Lean manufacturing is defined as an operational strategy oriented toward achieving the most operational efficiencies by eliminating waste. So, if we look at that definition, where should our focus be when attempting to achieve this goal? Simply put, operational strategies are focused on process, yet often we ignore the processes associated with indirect material, MRO (maintenance, repair, and operations) supplies, and tooling.

Case Study: School Districts Implement KidGopher Child Pick Up System To Improve Student Safety
It is easy to remember the exciting feeling of watching the clock tick down to the last minute of the school day. The doors swing open and hundreds of students come racing outside, either to wait in line for the school bus or to find Mom’s minivan parked somewhere along the curb. But what happens next? How can parents and school teachers be sure that every child gets home safely that afternoon?
Overview: Readiness Assessment
Gaining a return on your investments is what allows your business to grow and in-crease value to your customers, staff and stakeholders. Many of today’s RFID initiatives underway within organizations are moving forward without clearly understanding ROI considerations and the true benefits to the organization.
Application Note: Benefits Of Passive Visibility — RFID Technology
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is the next generation of the use of technology in the manufacturing and supply chain processes. Using radio waves to identify objects, animals and people, RFID consists of three components: the RFID tag, which stores information, the RFID reader, which collects data stored on the tag, and the RFID software that interprets the reader information so it can be seen by other enterprise systems already in place.
Application Note: Casino And Hotel Managment
The initial opportunity for RFID was identified to enhance the experience of the Casino’s VIP guests and to automatically recognize special guests. RFID passive technology was first implemented for “VIP” notification to staff to insure the highest levels of service for their guests.
