SERAMIS research from the RFID Lab of the University of Parma has been awarded with the “Best Paper Award” at the “XX Summer School in Industrial and Mechanical Plants Francesco Turco”, that was held in in Naples last September. The paper, entitled “Deploying RFID in the fashion and apparel sector: an in the field analysis to understand where the technology is going to”, has been selected as best paper of the whole conference by a panel of distinguished professors and lecturers involved in logistics, supply chain and operation management. The paper reports the first results of an ambitious project: Building up and sharing at a worldwide level a database with distinctive characteristics of every item-level RFID project. In detail, the research shows and correlates the use cases pursued and the results achieved by more than 70 item-level RFID projects in the last decade. The correlation between use cases and results can help specialists to understand which use cases could be pursued to “ensure” the higher probability of achieving results and, therefore, rolling out full RFID deployments.
