RFID Theft Prevention in Apparel and Retail

Item-level RFID tagging makes daily inventory counts a realistic task, and companies like American Apparel have readily embraced RFID throughout their supply chain all the way to the retail store. The real-time and accurate data has improved their logistics strategies, but American Apparel noticed another added benefit. Shrinkage in their stores dropped by an average of 55%, and some stores saw shrinkage drop by 75%. It turns out that employees were largely responsible for a significant portion of shrinkage.

Employee theft accounts for 43% of all retail shrinkage. When inventory is tracked in real-time, employees are no longer able to easily steal products as the source of the theft would be quickly linked to the employees working during that shift. From there, it would be a quick process of elimination to identify the culprit.

When RFID, point-of-sale, and electronic article surveillance (EAS) technologies are all incorporated, loss intelligence greatly improves due to the availability of shared data throughout the integrated system. RFID provides inventory visibility and keeps stock levels accurate, but when integrated with the POS and EAS system, companies can identify which items exited the store without being purchased. Besides providing valuable data to loss prevention teams, the store can adjust their inventory accordingly. Also, if someone attempts to return the stolen item, the POS and RFID system will be able to identify that item as being stolen.

RFID application in Aviation Baggage

RFID application in Aviation Baggage
Let’s look at why an RFID tag-based system reaps significant benefits.
– RFID systems enable more accurate tracking of baggage through an airport and more efficient loading and unloading of planes.
– Airport RFID systems help reduce lost luggage and improve on-time departures resulting in lower costs and – greater passenger satisfaction.
– With no line-of-sight requirement and the ability of RFID tags to be read while moving, in any orientation, from up to 4 feet away, RFID provides significant benefits over bar codes.
– RFID-based systems are more reliable, achieving average read rates of more than 97% compared to barcodes at about 85% on average.
– RFID baggage tagging can provide improved security with an additional level of identification and connection of baggage to the passenger.

RFID systems are also being used to help improve asset-tracking of airplane repair parts as well as life vests, first-aid kits and even seats.

Some airlines are even exploring the opportunities that near field communications (NFC)-enabled phones will provide to make the customer experience more enjoyable – from boarding the plane without paper documents to accessing special lounges and entertainment.

RFID application in Apparel and Retail

RFID apparel and retail item-level RFID inlay and tag solutions support lower costs, increased sales and higher customer satisfaction over traditional barcode systems.

How does RFID tagging deliver these benefits?
– End-to-end item-level supply chain visibility and documented chain of custody reduces counterfeiting, theft, billing disputes and charge-back fees while protecting the brand.
– Elimination of line-of-sight, tag orientation or bar code label quality requirements, manual data entry and operator error enables faster, more accurate inventory management.
– Just-in-time inventory resupply, from manufacturing through distribution to point of sale reduces costs and out-of-stocks, increases inventory turn and creates higher customer satisfaction.

RFID application in Library, Media, Documents and Files

RFID application in Library, Media, Documents and Files

RFID saves time and money over traditional tracking technologies. For the concerns that library managers face each day, RFID technology brings solutions that magnetic stripe or barcode technology simply can not deliver as effectively :
– Faster scanning of the data stored on the RFID tag
– Simpler and easier for patrons to self checkout
– High speed inventory speeds up sorting and re-shelving
– A longer lifecycle than a barcode

RFID document-tracking systems can save time and money by drastically reducing :
– Time spent searching for lost documents
– Financial and legal impact associated with losing documents

Equipping documents, files or archival cartons with passive RFID tags and installing RFID readers throughout a facility creates an RFID system that provides assurance and validation that items are where they are supposed to be at all times and are able to be retrieved quickly when needed.

When combined with employee identification systems using cards or fingerprint sensors or tags, the RFID system will enable real-time recording of which employees are removing or replacing which documents, whether authorized or not, from a filing cabinet or room.

Contact Smart Card

Contact Smart Card
Smart cards are credit card-sized plastic cards that contain relatively large amounts of information in an imbedded micro-chip. Smart cards differ from magnetic stripe cards in two ways: the amount of information that can be stored is much greater, and some smart cards can be reprogrammed to add, delete or rearrange data.
There are several terms used to identify cards with integrated circuits embedded in them. The terms “chip card,” “integrated circuit card”, and “smart card” really all refer to the same thing.
There are two types of smart card. The first is really a “dumb” card in that it only contains memory. These cards are used to store information. Examples of this might include stored value cards where the memory stores a dollar value which the user can spend in a variety of transactions. Examples might be pay phone, retail, or vending machines. Another example of a “dumb” card is the memory that is plugged into a Personal Computer (PC Card – used to be called PCMCIA).
The second type of card is a true “smart” card where a microprocessor is embedded in the card along with memory. Now the card actually has the ability to make decisions about the data stored on the card. The card is not dependent on the unit in which it is plugged to make the application work. A smart purse or multi-use card is possible with this technology.
Smart cards are the technology of choice when fairly large databases must travel with an individual or an object. For instance, a version of smart card technology is used to record service histories for automobiles. The data travels on a small tag on the owner’s key ring. It can be reprogrammed, updated and accessed whenever the vehicle is serviced with any of that company’s dealers.
As there is a microprocessor on the card, various methods can be used to prevent access to the information on the card to provide a secure environment. This security has been touted as the main reason that smart cards will replace other card technologies.
The microprocessor type smart card comes in two flavors – the contact version and the contactless version. Both types of card have the microprocessor embedded in the card, the contact version having gold contacts on the surface of the card to provide the electrical connection.
Smart cards are not new, the first patent was filed in France in 1974 and the first cards were used in France in 1982. The technology was rapidly accepted in Europe because the high cost of telecommunications made on-line verification of transactions very expensive. The smart card provided the mechanism to move that verification off line, reducing the cost without sacrificing any of the security. In the United States, telecommunication costs have always been low compared to other countries. This meant that the impetus to implement smart cards has taken longer to reach the momentum needed.
The possible benefits of the acceptance of smart card technology depend on the application in use. However, the ability to move large amounts of data with little or no increase in the security of the data will lead to many new applications being created that we haven’t even begun to think about.

RFID Solution

RFID Solution
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology transmits data that automates processes in the transportation and logistics industry. The Department of Defense utilizes this technology to track shipments dispatched by suppliers. RFID solutions include a range of hardware and software technologies that ease the tracking process and ensure accuracy and value through a streamlined delivery process. Suppliers and the Department of Defense benefit from implementing even the simplest RFID solutions available off the shelf from RFID companies such as Mil-Pac Technology.
What Are the Benefits of Using RFID Solutions?
In the past, keeping military shipping requirements in compliance with multiple regulations was a challenge. Supplier personnel used data-entry methods to record and track single shipments or pallets destined for military installations. Today, RFID technologies simplify the process through a combination of hardware and software installations.
RFID Hardware Solutions
In order for RFID technology to work, the supplier must attach or embed a tag to an outgoing shipment. The tag contains identifying information about the shipment and emits a radio frequency that a tag reader can interpret. DOD depots match RFID tags to data uploaded to Wide Area Workflow (WAWF) by contractors. This allows them to know what has been received without reading labels or scanning barcodes.
RFID Software Solutions
The Department of Defense requires that suppliers provide RFID data for each shipment they send. In addition to the RFID data, suppliers must meet a number of compliance requirements, including properly formatted labels, reports and invoices. The supplier must upload the data to WAWF, the military’s acceptance and invoicing system.
RFID solutions streamline the entire process by ensuring compliance with the myriad of military requirements. Mil-Pac offers a number of solutions that take the guesswork out of labeling, shipping and invoicing. MIL-Comply RFID Solution formats labels and data for WAWF. In addition, Mil-Pac RFID software integrates seamlessly into our products that automate other phases of the shipping process.

Barcodes vs. RFID Systems: What is Best for Your Operation?

Barcodes vs. RFID Systems: What is Best for Your Operation?

Two primary forms of inventory management systems are used by organizations: barcodes and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification). One method of collecting data is not necessarily better than the other, and in some cases a hybrid solution that leverages both technologies may work best and minimize risks and costs. They are very different technologies with many advantages and disadvantages depending on the needs of your organization.
BARCODES
Barcodes are universal and have become the standard for data collection in supply chain, distribution and retail operations. They use optical technology for the data to be read and collected, which means the scanner must physically see each tag in order to scan it. While the scanners are small and easy to use, barcodes are limited in the type and amount of data that can be presented and collected. Typically, barcodes in retail applications only denote the product type and its manufacturer.
Barcode systems are very inexpensive compared to RFID systems, with a variety of scanners widely available.
RFID
Although barcode systems are universal, RFID technology offers many benefits and can provide unique RFID_tagitem level identification as it works on radio frequency technology. Unlike barcodes requiring a scanner to pass over each item, multiple RFID tags can be identified simultaneously; even in packages, boxes or containers with multiple items. They can track the lifespan of an item since they can be reprogrammed and even reused. RFID tags are dynamic and can be read, written to and updated, even activating other transactions and events. Security is also enhanced making RFID tags very difficult to counterfeit. Unlike barcodes, RFID tags can be encrypted or password protected.
Data capabilities on RFID tags are also improved going beyond including only the product type and manufacturer. Product maintenance instructions, shipping history, manufacturing and expiration dates are only a few examples of the types of information that can be included on an RFID tag. This makes it possible to track specific products as they move through the complete supply chain, right to the consumer.
Hybrid Approach
Hybrid solutions leverage both barcode and RFID technology, which is an ideal way to meet specific compliance guidelines or other parameters of an operation, without overhauling an entire data collection process. An example would be utilizing barcodes for bulk items, but RFID tags for individual item level identification once bulk containers are unpacked. This eliminates the need for each individual item on a pallet to be scanned. The hybrid approach leverages the strengths of both technologies to enhance visibility across the supply chain.
Conclusion
Barcode readers may initially seem less expensive than RFID tags, but there are many considerations, including labor, security and durability. RFID tags contain high levels of security, carry large data capabilities, and can be run with minimal human participation once implemented. The biggest advantage of RFID is its visibility into the entire supply chain providing the capability to track specific products as they move through the entire process, even from remote locations. RFID data can be read and aggregated from a central headquarters for multiple distribution centers thousands of miles apart, or from customer stores. This insight allows organizations to identify gaps, which can significantly reduce costs and increase earnings. The key is to understand the differences and benefits of both technologies before choosing an inventory management system for your organization.

Antenna

Antenna
Both a reader and a tag have an antenna. To enable data communications each must be able to receive some of the transmitted RF energy from the other so the information can be recovered, from the RF carrier, and used.
A simple whip antenna radiates RF energy in most directions, similar to the way a light bulb radiates light energy in most directions. But…
Some types of antenna focus the radiation into a beam. If you send the energy only toward the tags, and you don’t waste any energy by sending it in directions where there are no tags, you increase the RFID range.
Have you seen the Yagi antennas with the directing cross bars on them? Those direct the energy into a beam. The more directors an antenna has, the narrower, or more focused, is the beam. But the narrower the beam, the more accurately you have to aim it, as the target area is smaller and the tags have to be closer together.
But you can’t just add a highly directional antenna to your RFID reader and focus all your power into a narrow beam to increase the RFID range. Any other radio receiver within the influence of this concentrated beam might also be influenced… adversely.
An intensely focused RF transmission from far away might overpower a weaker local RF signal.
You need to limit the power you transmit from the antenna and this depends on the type of antenna you use.
Regulations in the USA limit the transmit power in the UHF band to 4Watts EIRP.
EIRP is the Effective Isotropic Radiated Power and is the amount of focused power (the beam) transmitted from a directional antenna. This power is simply the amount of energy that you’re legally allowed to radiate from your antenna, every second.
If the antenna radiates in all directions (isoptropically), you could put 4 Watts in to the antenna and the EIRP would be 4 Watts out.
But if the antenna focuses all this energy into a beam that has say 10x the intensity it would otherwise have, then if you put 4 Watts into the antenna you would effectively be radiating 4×10 = 40 Watts EIRP out of it (in the beam) and be violating the regulation in the direction the antenna is pointing.
Antennas don’t just transmit, they also receive.
To recover the ID information from a tag the RF signal has to be stronger than any unwanted background electrical noise. If a signal is weak, you may need a high-gain antenna to capture enough RF energy…
and a sensitive receiver to put this into. This way you may get enough RF energy to enable you to recover the ID information.
