Abstract

This project presents the advantages to organisations in introducing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). While RFID has a greater number of benefits than its predecessor, the bar code, it currently comes at a price that many businesses still consider prohibitive. RFID is a costly solution, lacking standardisation, it has a small number of suppliers developing end to end solutions, suffers from some adverse deployment issues and is clouded by privacy concerns. On the other hand it also presents many advantages.
Given that RFID is an emerging technology, reliance for literature was based on a wide range of online industry sources, including RFID vendor web sites, standards organisations, whitepapers and press releases. The relevant material was gathered, categorised and sorted into like themes which formed the basis for the advantages and disadvantages of RFID to organisations.
