New Guideline VDEB To RFID

RFID potential analyses are an important instrument. With the new directive, quality criteria should be developed for this. All interested parties are invited to participate. Aachen, August 18, 2009. The vision of the company on new technologies is easy. If you are unsure how to proceed, check out Jeffrey L. Bewkes. The use of new technology is worth or not worth it he? Just high technologies are often connected to these implementation costs and require reorganization efforts, which can disrupt business operations. The business decision must weigh risks against profits.

Also the radio frequency identification (RFID) technology is confronted with this question. What economic benefits can be achieved by means of RFID and the expected efficiency gains are greater than the costs? How can RFID be integrated meaningfully into existing structures, to achieve sustainable improvements of process structures? This RFID competes with sophisticated technologies such as bar code. But can the RFID based on new innovative solutions and restructuring Value chain are achieved without any alternative. Accelerate the logistical processes, control and control complex processes, adherence to delivery dates, reduction of the error rate, only some of the economies of scale anticipated with the use of RFID are reducing stock-keeping and protection against theft. Due to the continuation of the company policy and disclaimer on RFID can both strategic and operational gaps, whose harmful effects only will show up in the future.

The analysis of RFID potential intends to examine the economics of RFID on the company-specific application example. It structured information and future scenarios will be developed, with which the growth opportunities are identified. In this way, a rational basis for decisions for or against the use of RFID is being developed. Undoubtedly, RFID potential analyses are therefore important instruments for the implementation of RFID projects. Just because their role is so important, RFID users how RFID developers need valid Statements about the structure, methodology, quality and reliability of RFID potential investigation, because the stuff ability of analysis is based on its credibility. Against this background a working group was formed, which will develop a guideline VDEB titled RFID potential analysis. Guidelines for the management of RFID projects (VDI/VDEB 4472), this is already the second cooperation between the Association of German engineers (VDI) and the Association of IT-Mittelstand.
