Rollout completed in Northern American stores– is global use possible?

The customer is the centre of attention – this is how it should always be in the retail sector. However, retail companies follow different approaches to achieve this goal. The Canadian sportswear company Lululemon Athletica makes use of RFID to optimise the shopping experience of their customers. In a first step, the technology is used to assure complete control over the inventory. The North American rollout which was finished by the end of 2015 is a part of the global business perspective of Lululemon. This perspective regards technology use as a supportive measure to achieve the best possible customer satisfaction in store or at any time in the web shop. Now, at the start of 2016, what is the status of the RFID, and what steps are planned next?

RTLS in the emergency department

No ‘Big Brother’! Locating without surveillance

“An RFID system for tracking people and equipment should never be implemented without the acceptance and support of the staff.” Right at the beginning,Thomas R. Hellmich, M.D. at Mayo Clinic based the considerations to improve patient care with RFID for the emergency clinic on this premise. The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, operates one of the most modern emergency centres in the US. More than 70,000 patients are treated annually. Time is most valuable to create the best possible patient care. “Staff wanted a mechanism to help them spend more time with patients and less time searching for each other, patients and equipment”, adds Kalyan S. Pasupathy, Ph.D. at Mayo Clinic.

Online retailer Otto is testing NFC labels as product assistants

In November 2015, Otto gave the go-ahead for an innovative service-providing project. NFC technology - as part of the provided service - has been tested right up until January 2016. Customers ordering one of two coffee machines on the Otto website will also receive an NFC label. This means that an online product assistant can be contacted by smartphone or tablet. “RFID im Blick” talked with Dr. Thomas Schnieders, Director of E-commerce, Innovation & Platform, Otto about the goals of this test.

After five years of successful RFID use, the RFID pioneer re-launches RFID system for 800 stores, laying the ground for future innovations

The RFID pioneer Gerry Weber created a success story! The fashion company is now heralding a new era of success by changing its ERP system. The new ERP system will be rolled out in the summer of 2017, along with a new RFID inventory solution. This is not a restart, but is about raising the successful RFID processes to the next level, explains Michel Feurich. “We have done our homework successfully. Now we want to promote the RFID success story and be more innovative. We have set the course”. With the natural confidence of an RFID pioneer, the CIO talks openly about the reasons for the system change, the transformation process and the visions for the stores of the future. He also explains why Omnichannel still poses a hurdle.

Volkswagen promotes Industrie 4.0 technical development by rolling-out the Transparent Prototype project and starting a new data exchange platform

What’s Industrie 4.0? While economists and politicians are still intensely discussing its definition, integration and employment, Volkswagen create facts. For the technical development of Industrie 4.0, the data exchange portal eLISA is the basis for electronic component data exchange between suppliers and Volkswagen. Prototype parts are RFID-tagged by suppliers. The related logistics and component data is communicated to Volkswagen by eLISA and used, among other things, for the essential construction state documentation of test vehicles. The vision of Transparent Prototypes is becoming a reality.

RFID is already an integral part of internal warehouse management – the logistics service provider DSV identifies the need for technological development in supply chain processes

In several automotive industry logistics centres, RFID is already an integral part of in-house logistics for goods movement control. “We want to have this optimisation in the supply chain, too. In a technological sense, this area has hardly moved on”, explains Paul Claessen, Automotive Development Manager at the logistics provider DSV Road. Critical cross-docking processes especially could become significantly more effective and much safer through the use of standardised RFID.

Be at the right place at the right time with RFID!

Currently, approximately 26,000 ordered items leave the Global Parts Distribution Center of Scania Parts Logistics in Opglabbeek, Belgium every day. To satisfy the ever-increasing orders from customers worldwide, the site has recently been significantly expanded. After the success of the employment of an RTLS-RFID system in the Scania Parts Center 1 (SPC 1), the use of RFID is currently being extended to SPC 2, recently built in 2012–2013. First tests with the new technology have provided such good results that the roll-out in late October will optimise delivery processes significantly benefitting overseas customers.

The constantly growing number of temperature-controlled air cargo increases demand for temperature monitoring – RFID is a part of the solution

Martin Stratmann, DHL Thermonet Product Manager Germany, anticipates that the demand for temperature- controlled air cargo will continue to increase, especially for pharmaceutical products. The logistics provider has just expanded its capacity with a new 600-square-metre logistics centre at the Frankfurt hub – it is one of 90 Thermonet stations worldwide where RFID sensor technology has become part of the transport solution for life sciences and healthcare products.

In order to optimise and simplify the management of around 12,000 laundry items a day, the University Hospital Ljubljana makes use of RFID

At a time when the need to minimise costs is such a prime consideration within in the healthcare industry, it is essential to make use of IT solutions that improve internal processes. As one of the largest institutions in Slovenia, the University Hospital Ljubljana has responded to this situation and has recently introduced an RFID solution for tracking work wear. The aim was to simplify the issue and return of work wear from and to the laundry service, and at the same time to improve working conditions. The project has been successfully introduced with the help of Slovenian system integrator Špica International.
