use of RFID for inventory purposes
Message from firstname.lastname@example.org
Greetings colleagues,********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/discuss.
There is a group on campus analyzing the usefulness of the use of RFID for furniture inventory in the residence halls. There are over 2000 rooms (bedrooms and lounges); the standard set for a 2-person bedroom has 10 pieces of furniture.
- What other campuses, if any, are using RFID for inventory (for any purpose, not just furniture)?
- What is the viability/cost-benefit of using RFID vs. traditional inventorying methods? Hidden costs? Drawbacks?
If responses come to me individually, I can aggregate them and send back a summary to the list to avoid cluttering up the list with responses.
Thanks for any insight you might have!
