RFID evaluation: Can RFID technology work for you?

An increasing number of manufacturers and suppliers are choosing to incorporate RFID technology into their supply chain management (SCM) system -- either voluntarily or because they must comply with regulations from the U.S. Department of Defense, the Food and Drug Administration, or large retailers such as Wal-Mart.

"A lot of companies are looking at how to use RFID to improve their processes, which is a very, very complex thing to do," said Jeff Woods, an analyst with Stamford, Conn.-based Gartner Inc. "The processes themselves have already been optimized considerably, and so to go even further requires quite a bit of ingenuity."
