Case Studies Demonstrating RFID, Self-Check and Materials Handling Best Practices
Posted by Lori Ayre on April 17, 2016
One of my clients requested that I put together some case studies that would demonstrate Best Practices for implementing RFID, self-check, and automated materials handling. I was able to put together two excellent examples of how to do it right.
This case study was written based on a document prepared by JCL staff after their RFID implementation. It was their own evaluation of the process so it includes a description of things they did right and what they could have done better. It provides great information on how to plan and manage the implementation and includes useful and impressive outcome metrics.
MidContinent Library System Case Study
This case study was written based on telephone interviews with the staff. They describe another excellent process for implementing automated materials handling and then RFID and self-check. Even though I recommend implementing RFID before AMH, this process worked well for them and they are now achieving 90% self-check use systemwide.
This case study was largely written by my friend and colleague, Gretchen Freeman, about her experience implementing RFID when she was Associate Director at SLCLS.
