  4. RFID In Complex Environments
    4/7/2010
    Two of the difficulties limiting widespread acceptance of RFID are the tagging of objects with complex electromagnetic properties, and tagging of objects used in extreme environments. Standard RFID tags work very well when applied to cardboard boxes in climate controlled warehouses but in the real world, tags are needed that work well directly on metal or in metallic environments. Tags are also needed that work well in extreme environments characterized by exposure to chemicals, invasive force and/or high temperature.

  8. White Paper: Best Practices Guide: RFID Implementation, Testing & Deployment
    3/22/2010
    It was early 2009, and John Richards was testing the RFID inventory system he’d been working on for the past several years. John Richards manages the data centers for one of the country’s largest equipment providers. The data center where the RFID system was being tested was around 2000 square feet and contained over 7000 individual pieces of equipment. By Omni-ID
  9. White Paper: Real-Time Manufacturing Intelligence: 10 Ways To Improve Productivity, Reduce Costs, And Enhance Customer Satisfaction
    3/17/2010
    Omnitrol Networks believes that manufacturers will start moving their IT priorities from the back end to the shop floor, to enable a much higher return in business value and business optimization opportunities. So far, companies have spent millions of dollars investing in manufacturing and supply chain visibility systems with very little results in productivity improvements and costs reduction.
