Check out the back of the tag next time you buy a shirt. Chances are good you will find a radio frequency identification (RFID) device, designed to track the item through manufacturing, distribution, marketing and sale. To meet mandates by government and retailers, manufacturers and suppliers must integrate RFID technologies into their supply chains. Jones (industrial and management systems engineering, U. of Nebraska-Lincoln) and Chung (industrial engineering, U. of Houston) take engineering and business students and professionals from theory to design to application, describing the common components (tags, scanners, antennas and hosts), and passive components such as tags. They explain active components, system design, important RFID mandates and standards organizations, and explain how to manage RFID systems using Six Sigma models. They offer substantial application overviews in a variety of industries, offer a range of case studies, and describe related software.
