RFID Complete :: Pilot Project
A self-contained pilot application is built to test the theories put forth in the business case. This pilot is typically a subset of the overall implementation usually encompassing only one product line and distribution channel. It will provide integral financial and productive insight for each of the RFID related components and processes tested within the pilot.
This phase answers simple but important questions such as:
- "Have we physically applied the tags in the appropriate location to optimize performance with reader location?"
- "Are we sure that our RFID equipment is not causing radio interference with other business critical infrastructure/equipment?"
- "Are our parameters tuned optimally to balance read rates and resulting network traffic?"
Additionally, ROI figures calculated during the business case phase can be analyzed, confirmed, and extrapolated to create figures that further encompass the reality of your specific organization.
