RFID Real-World Deployments
Dunlop Tires
Business Issue
• Strict rules required to monitor tire usage during races to insure fair
competition
• Current barcode system could not guarantee 100
percent accuracy – done randomly; human intervention,
delays to race
• Solution can’t interfere with the race
Solution
• Datalinx Tire Tracking software at pit stops collecting data using
Motorola RFID fixed readers and antennas
• Tags embedded in tires and on cars are automatically read as cars
enter and exit the pit lanes
• Tires assigned to teams and cars prior to the race and again when
installed
Benefits
• 100 Accuracy in race regulation – checking 100% of cars
• Immediate, real-time data – sorts, compares, displays info
• Data available for commentators, press, fans
• Reduction in personnel needed to meet compliance
• Embedded tags prevents wear & tear and interfering with data
• Ability to react immediately to rule-infringements
• Track tires from mfg to allocation to usage and back for recycling
• Ability to analyze usage data for development purposes
Gulf Oil Spill
Business Issue
• Needed to track 73 yards of equipment and tools during clean up after
Gulf oil spill
• Poor utilization of equipment resulting in over purchasing and delays
• Needed a way to provide visibility to the country about clean up efforts
Solution
• Utilized the RFID best practices learned by Wal-Mart and quickly put
them to use in the Gulf
• Using ShipCom’s CATAMARAN™ solution to enable a fast and reliable
way of deploying an RFID solution that could integrate with the current
back-end system.
• Used mobile handhelds with RFID and GPS to keep track of all
equipment – 10,000-12,000 assets
Benefits
• Eliminate pen and paper process
• Real-time asset visibility and visibility
• Improved utilization of equipment and tools, stopped over renting,
reduced unnecessary purchasing of safety stock
• Ability to replicate solution to track office assets during
emergency evacuation
Partner
Sempra Energy
Business Issue
•
•
•
•
Out of 250,000 Meters installed yearly, 3300 were not being billed
$1.5 million yearly revenue losses due to lost meters
Inefficient paper based stock-taking processes
No real-time visibility of gas meters in the supply chain
Solution
• Motorola fixed and handheld readers set up at Sempra’s central warehouse
• RFID portal readers scan pallets from suppliers as they enter the warehouse
• 64 district warehouses used Motorola RFID handheld readers to accurately
control, route and aggregate multiple meter deliveries and installations
• CATAMARAN application was tailored to Sempra’s need & seamlessly
integrated with Sempra’s ERP system.
• Central Enterprise server hosted in addition to distributed warehouse edge
servers located across California.
• CATAMARAN Mobile & RFID solution to track gas meters at each process
gate, from American meter to consumer
Benefits
• ROI within 30 months & continued savings of $1.5M annually
• Increased inventory accuracy with real-time data available
• Increased revenues due to improved billings from previously lost
meters
• Full visibility of gas meters across the supply chain
• Reduction in ordering safety stock
Volkswagen of Mexico
Business Issue
• Improve spare parts distribution process for dealers
• Improve customer service with faster parts identification and shipping
• Reduce cardboard shipping container waste
Solution
• 16,000+ spare part reusable shipping containers fitted with RFID
tags
• Motorola XR Series fixed readers mounted at loading docks read
containers & send information to VW’s WMS
• Return process is simplified as containers pass through dock
doors and back into VW’s warehouse
Benefits
• 30% reduction in annual parts distribution expenses
• Reduced shipment errors via switch from manual to automated
shipment verification process
• Reduced packaging costs and waste from reusable shipping
containers
• Improved dealer service due to faster shipment verification system
• Generating replacement revenue for containers not returned within
10 days
Levinoff-Colbex
Canadian Meat Distributor
Business Issue
• Improve tracking process of meat throughout the agri-food logistics
chain – in processing, in transit, at distributor,, at food store
• Distinguish between usable and non-usable meat in production
facility
• Track product in distribution chain to enable post-production recalls
• Solution had to withstand high temperatures, humidity, extreme
shocks and soaking with high pressure sprays
Solution
• All animals and meat products are tagged
• Motorola’s rugged RFID fixed readers are installed
along meat production process to track progress
Benefits
• Meat production process now fully automated
requiring no human intervention
• Inspectors can pull all associated meat if any part does not pass inspection
• Product recalls simplified and tracked to each distribution center for faster alerts
and shelf removal
• Obtained new customer contracts due to process improvements and increased
bandwidth
• ROI in less than one year
Saint Luke’s Hospital
Problem
•
•
•
•
•
•
Needed to manage inventory valued at over $2.7M
Need to secure supplies, manage expiration date tracking, improve
capture of charges
Supplies used in Cardiac Catheterization Lab were not
properly accounted for
Supplies used during cases were not being billed to patient
Inaccurate inventory since supply usage was not accurately recorded
Over purchasing of supplies to compensate for errors
Solution
•
•
•
RFID Gen 2 RFID tags assigned to critical items
Motorola FX7400 RFID readers set up in key locations monitoring
treatment rooms, labs, and critical locations in numerous hallways and
stations
Cenbion software tracks all moving assets
Benefits
•
•
•
•
Increased revenue from fully capturing charges
Due to improved process, now authorized to place larger orders. Recently
placed a $900,000 order of pace makers and defibrillators – bulk purchase
saved 12% or $127,000 on that order alone
Reduced on-hand inventory significantly from 5-10 days to 2-3 days
Care givers able to spend less time on administrative duties and care for
patients
Gilead Sciences
Business Issue
• Biopharmaceutical company needed to improve quality systems and regulatory
compliance
• Multiple types of items to track – F&D Admin regulated documents, archived
records and biologicals such as tissue samples
• Time consuming asset auditing process
Solution
• RFID readers and antennas were placed above the ceiling tiles in each
attorney’s office and connected to an existing Ethernet network
• Files automatically checked out to attorney when read by reader
• Readers/antennas placed at returns table in the file room to automatically
check files in as they are dropped off
• FileTrail RFID Solution, including installation of RFID hardware and
loading of legacy data, implemented on a fast-track n a matter of weeks.
Benefits
• Real-time visibility of all assets for easy retrieval
• Simplified audit process by reading tags through boxes, no need to break the seal of
boxes to inventory and manage samples
• Implementing RFID in other areas to track and manage IP assets, patents and trademark
files, lab notebooks and traditional file folders
City of Hattiesburg
Business Issue
• Current residential and commercial garbage collection system needed
to be updated due to rising liabilities for worker injuries and workers’ compensation claims
• Unsightly and unsanitary conditions were being produced by the use of trash bags
Solution
• Implemented an automated collection system that could track trucks and
utilized collection carts (not trash bags)
• Placed RFID readers and antennas on garbage trucks along with GPS
• Used Otto Environmental trash carts which had embedded RFID tags in
the handles
• Antenna type, size, placement important for reading tags only when cart
was tipped into the truck and not while on side of road
• Concept2 Solution ContainerMTR integrated suite of products that is
used to manage, track and provide reporting

• Noticeably cleaner city by moving from a bagged trash/open
truck collection system to a closed cart/truck compactor
• Reduction in injuries and workers’ compensation claims due
• Visibility into trash collection by address and the ability to offer
incentives to residents
