RFID more complicated than it looks

Thanks, a very informative article. RFID seems like a simple idea, but it's surprisingly complex. You have to practically install a beta system to figure out whether it will benefit your operation, and what hardware, software, communications and system configurations you need.

Excellent point, Ann. Just reading through the scope of what's required in terms of pilots is likely  to keep many companies sitting on the sidelines, despite the huge potential RFID can have on supply chain and manufacturing operations. I'm wondering if that's the reason RFID has been slower to make a mark than initially expected. While introduced with great fanfare and with promises of delivering transformative change, the actual implementations and pilots of companies doing real use cases with RFID has been somewhat disappointing, at least according to what I've read. Now I understand why.

RFID a hype?

RFID can be technology for the sake of technology. Careful analysis must be done before selecting RFID. Time tested time proven barcode still prevails
