Implementation at Pine Bluff Arsenal
Pine Bluff Arsenal
Pine Bluff Arsenal (PBA) spends a considerable amount of money due to multiple and non-existent tracking systems for both inventory maintenance and production support. Errors continually occur due to current methods depending on human accountability. Department of Defense requirements are serving as additional motivation for RFID deployment. (PBA)
RFID EPC Standard
The Electronic Product Code (EPC) is a unique 96 bit code embedded into each RFID tag
Class 0 - Passive, Read only
Class 1 - Passive, Write once
Class 2 - Passive, Multi Write / Read
Class 3 - Active, Multi Write / Read
Class 4 - Active, Networking Tags
Our objective was to investigate implementation of RFID technology for tracking at Pine Bluff Arsenal and develop an implementation plan leaving the Arsenal in a position to install the system.
