Analyze the need: Analyze the main need for implementation of RFID. Is the intent to track product movement from supply through distribution? Is there any need involves locating the right product at the right time? Is there any need to track materials in production and through manufacturing process so you can deliver ﬁnished products to customers sooner and at a lower defect rate? If Yes the answer to these questions then I would recommend to implementation of RFID system, So that all this process will be easy with RFID tags.
Type of the tag: Choosing the type of the tag will play key role in purchase and implementation of RFID system. Whether the type of the tags needed are read only, read and write only, less memory, more memory will decide the price of the tag. Read only and less memory are comparatively less price than read and write, and more memory. If there is need to save more data of the product them we need to select read and write with more memory which will increase cost of tag. Size and Shape will also important in selection of RFID tag. If size of the tag was not optimized with product it will gave odd view of the product to the costumer. The shape of the tag also should be optimized so that it will be easy to place the tag on product.
Position of the tag: Position of the tag is very important in implementation of RFID system. If the tag was placed on the product at an improper position then it will be difficult to read the tag when the products are in pallet. Position of the tag will helpful in design of pallet so that any item in the pallet will be read by readers. It is very challenge to tag water based products and metal based products as water observes and metal reflects.
Performance of the tag : While implementation of RFID system considering performance of the tag is very important. The tag should able to perform guarantee read at any point of time. Generally high bandwidth tags will provide guarantee read. If the product is needed to be read while in the moving wan, then then readers and tags should also have a capability to perform well in such conditions.
Placement of readers: It is important to place the readers at particular position with a fixed area of readability. So that there will be no collision between readers, than there will be no false data.
Backup plan : Always have a backup plane. If any up predicted suctions happens it is important to have a backup plan. It would be very useful if the backup plan can access the database of RFID system.
