There are many applications for how RFID systems help manufacturers and warehouse operations; these applications can be as unique as the enterprise they help. However, there are some common areas in these industries related to their logistics of getting the finished product to the customer or to another distribution center. Bottlenecking of the goods at the shipping door has implications on the costs to ship goods, lowers revenues when there are fewer shipped goods to bill and puts a drag on productivity gains one have made in other areas of the enterprise.
An RFID strategy provides an outline to use the technology aligned with an enterprises strategic visions and goals. A business that strives to be a model of efficiency could use RFID to streamline the operations is a typical example. The RFID strategy is applicable whether big or small business because RFID is going to be found anywhere in the near future. An uniform strategy is not going to work generally that means the businesses must create their own unique RFID strategy.
The EPC Tag Class Structure is often misunderstood. Class is not the same as Generation. Class describes a tags basic functionality for example whether it has memory or a battery. Generation refers to a tag specifications major release or version number. The full name for what is popularly called EPC Generation 2 is actually EPC Class 1 Generation 2, indicating that the specification refers to the second major release of a specification for a tag with write-once memory.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), an automatic recognition technology employing wireless communications, has drawn much attention. RFID tags, both passive tags and active tags are broadly used in virtually every industry in the world. This paper introduces how the active tag works and also discusses some applications. An active tag is an RFID tag that incorporates a battery, and can communicate with a reader that is several tens of meters away. While passive tags can only respond to an electromagnetic wave signal emitted from a reader, active tags can also spontaneously transmit an ID.

The ability of any enterprise to effectively monitor its manufacturing facility and ""Work in progress"" has been an elusive or costly endeavor. However, with the introduction of RFID technologies and its application to the manufacturing process such initiatives are now well within reach. RFID by its very nature has the ability to read tags or labels over distances and multiple or batches simultaneously. Other RFID initiatives provide the ability to write data to a tag multiple times.
