New research shows RFID is far from a failed technology

June 28th, 2011 | DC Velocity

Dismissed by some as an overpriced version of the bar code, RFID (radio frequency identification) has in fact been adopted by shippers and service providers as a useful tool in supply chain operations, according to research conducted by Bryant's John K. Visich, associate professor of management, and Suhong Li, associate professor of computer information systems.

In partnership with Pedro M. Reyes, associate professor of management at Baylor University, and DC Velocity magazine, they asked the magazine's readers whether they've deployed RFID and if they have, how they're using it, why they're using it, what barriers they've encountered, and what benefits they've gained (or hope to gain).
