    1. 1. Research & Development FAG #4 <ul><li>RFID Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Roy Zhuang </li></ul><ul><li>Adam Smith </li></ul><ul><li>Scott Sleightholm </li></ul>
    2. 2. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) <ul><li>What is RFID? </li></ul><ul><li>RFID is an automatic identification method, relying on storing and remotely retrieving data via RFID tags or transponders. The small RFID tag can be attached or incorporated into a product, animal or person. Silicon chips and antennas in the tags enable them to receive and respond to radio frequency queries from an RFID transceiver. </li></ul><ul><li>Active and Passive Tags </li></ul><ul><li>Active speak all the time, Passive speak when spoken to. </li></ul><ul><li>R&D’s proposal </li></ul><ul><li>RFID! </li></ul>
    3. 3. Why RFID for petPRO? <ul><li>RFID’s are the next generation Bar Code, allowing for data to be stored. </li></ul><ul><li>RFID’s make production more efficient; many barcodes can be replaced by one RFID tag </li></ul><ul><li>Increased profitability with increased control over workflow </li></ul><ul><li>The scanners do not require line of sight access </li></ul><ul><li>RFID chip can hold a large amount of data </li></ul><ul><li>ROI on RFID </li></ul><ul><li>Reduction in out of stock items </li></ul><ul><li>Future of the RFID market </li></ul><ul><li>Gives petPRO a competitive advantage </li></ul>
    4. 4. Overview of the Company <ul><li>Founded in 2001 by veterans of the RFID industry </li></ul><ul><li>Management team consists of seasoned veterans in software, hardware, RF technology, corporate development, and marketing </li></ul><ul><li>Have worked in important product development roles for major organizations including Fortune 500 companies </li></ul><ul><li>Core of the system is built around the RFID tags, RFID readers, host computer, and Windows based software. </li></ul>
    5. 5. Advantages: <ul><li>USE : Wireless Communication Between RFID Reader and Host </li></ul><ul><li>COMPATIBILITY : Windows Based Software </li></ul><ul><li>- ActiveWave designs its own RFID tags, readers, and host software </li></ul><ul><li>- Multiple Monitoring Terminals </li></ul><ul><li>INTERNAL CONTROL : Reduction of Theft and Shrinkage </li></ul><ul><li>- Multiple Monitoring Terminals </li></ul><ul><li>- Multi-Tag True Anti-Collision Capability </li></ul><ul><li>- Long life, small size </li></ul>
    6. 6. Disadvantages <ul><li>COMPATIBILITY : No platform provided to enable direct integration of RFID data with SAP. </li></ul><ul><li>COMPONENTS : Package does not include RFID printer hardware and lacks other hardware solutions. </li></ul><ul><li>COST : Relatively high cost of implementation and systems maintenance compared to other competitors. </li></ul><ul><li>SUPPORT : Support functions provided by ActiveWave are limited, no online help, or customized training. </li></ul>
    7. 7. Benefits <ul><li>PERSONALIZED: ActiveWave is personalized, flexible and user-friendly software. </li></ul><ul><li>PORTABLE: Offers portable database with flexible memory size. </li></ul>
    8. 8. <ul><li>INITIAL STAGES: Company is currently in the early stages of its development, it has only been in the market for 5 years. </li></ul><ul><li>VULNERABLE: There is little security available for systems offered by ActiveWave. </li></ul><ul><li>INCOMPATABLE: There is no solutions offered by ActiveWave to allow data to be transferred into petPRO’s SAP systems. </li></ul>Risks
    9. 9. Overview - Definition <ul><li>Intermec offers complete RFID hardware industry solutions for companies across North America and throughout the world. </li></ul><ul><li>Provide all levels of RFID solutions from RFID tags, to hand held RFID scanners, large RFID scanners capable of scanning multiple items simultaneously, RFID printing solutions and complete instillation of all systems. </li></ul><ul><li>Offer Revolutionary Gen 2 RFID compliant equipment ensuring established, speed, efficiency, reliability, range, security and cost standards. </li></ul>
    10. 10. Advantages <ul><li>PROVEN: Intermec currently provides RFID hardware systems to, including 75 percent of Fortune 500 companies and 60 percent of the Fortune 100. </li></ul><ul><li>CUTTING EDGE: Intellitag™ Generation 2 UHF RFID (Active) only available from Intermec, RFID pilots which have proven cost advantages of RFID, SAP integration solutions. </li></ul><ul><li>SUPPORT: Intermec offers renowned professional implementation services and continuous customer support for their systems. </li></ul>
    11. 11. Disadvantages <ul><li>DEPENDANCE: Forces petPRO to rely entirely on one provider for our RFID hardware systems. </li></ul><ul><li>TECHNOLOGY DECISION: Using active tags is currently significantly more expensive than the alternative of passive RFID tags. </li></ul>
    12. 12. Benefits <ul><li>INTEGRATION : Intermec offers solutions which can be INTEGRATED WITH petPRO’s CURRENT SAP!!! </li></ul><ul><li>- Data retrieved from our RFID systems can be easily adapted into the current SAP systems we use. </li></ul><ul><li>COMPETITVE ADVANTAGE: The use of such a system will provide us with a competitive advantage over other companies who have not yet employed RFID systems. </li></ul><ul><li>COST EFFECTIVE: The cost of this RFID system will be partially recouped through the benefits it will bring in forms of increased efficiency from both production lines and supply chains. </li></ul>
    13. 13. <ul><li>COMPETITIVE NECESSITY: Hesitation to implement this technology will allow competitors the chance to employ RFID solutions first. As RFID’s are embraced by more and more competitors (becoming a competitive necessity) petPRO will be forced to play catch up, to this industry trend. </li></ul><ul><li>TRAINING: Employees are currently unfamiliar with RFID technologies and systems, if proper training is not ensured the whole implementation may fail. </li></ul>Risks

    15. 17. <ul><li>We recommend that petPRO goes ahead with implementing Intermec’s RFID system. </li></ul><ul><li>We believe that best results will be obtained through a two stage leveraging system, over 2 years. Each year incorporating more FAG’s into the RFID system. </li></ul>Recommendation
    16. 18. <ul><li>We believe the benefits of SAP integration are a must for our RFID system. </li></ul><ul><li>As our Graph illustrates, the total advantages of Intermec’s RFID systems are greater than those of ActiveWave. </li></ul><ul><li>The total costs are relatively similar, and we believe the increase in price is undervalued for the additional services and hardware received from Intermec. </li></ul><ul><li>Our excel pivot tables show that using our rating system, Intermec far outweighs ActiveWave in all categories. </li></ul><ul><li>We believe that this implementation must not be rushed which is why we propose a two step plan with a scheduled review after all systems have been put into action. </li></ul>Rationale
    17. 19. <ul><li>YEAR 1: Manufacturing, Shipping/Receiving/Warehousing, HR, IS/IT/D. </li></ul><ul><li>Manufacturing is where our product begins, thus so should RFID; first stage will allow precise control of manufacturing workflow according to inventory, WIP and raw materials supplies. We have their support. </li></ul><ul><li>Shipping/Rec…: The first stage of RIFD will allow precise tracking of inflow and outflow of inventory with exact locations, amount in stock, and ETA of shipments. </li></ul><ul><li>HR will be essential, they will be required to coordinate training strategies along with that provided by Intermec. We have their support. </li></ul><ul><li>IS/IT/D: will be needed to ensure successful data uploading to our SAP systems. </li></ul>Leverage
    18. 20. <ul><li>YEAR 2: Sales Operations, Marketing, Customer Service, Review. </li></ul><ul><li>Sales Operations: RFID implementation will see P.O.S info to be used not only for restocking purposes, but to collect data with regards to date of sale, promotions, store and associate info. </li></ul><ul><li>Marketing: RFID data accessed through SAP will provide location of sales info to better define target markets and make use of advertising campaigns. </li></ul><ul><li>Customer Service: Data collected through RFID technology will provide specific market data, allowing accurate customer info to be accessed instantly through SAP. We have their support. </li></ul><ul><li>Review: The R&D department believes that at the end of the 2 year implementations a full review of the RFID system should be conducted highlighting pros, and cons, and future development plans. </li></ul>Leverage
