But what are some preliminary questions executives need to explore as they move forward to meet RFID compliance standards? Leaders within the retail, manufacturing and defense industries are driving the adoption of this technology, requiring many suppliers to comply by early 2005. RFID technology, which has been around for many years, carries descriptive information of a product in a tag embedded with a chip. Devices such as handheld computers or sensors located in a warehouse can read this data, helping businesses streamline processes such as inventory management. John Cummings, managing director and global RFID practice leader for BearingPoint, is available to answer questions on RFID. Specifically, Mr. Cummings can address: - The preliminary step of conducting technology, environmental and organizational evaluations to ensure readiness; - How strategy and implementation play a critical role in the success of the initiative; and - How companies can handle process changes caused by the different RFID standards.
