RFID technology has grown to become an innovative component in supply chain management and is not just a substitution for barcodes. RFID ensures accuracy in inventory control and real time product information available to make decisions. It makes the supply chain information significantly more accurate and improves the reliability and efficiency of the entire chain. As real-time information is made obtainable, planning and administration processes can be extensively improved as well. Applying RFID technology will result in less manual work, improved visibility, improved planning and less costs. This paper focuses on the readability of RFID penetration in different particulate solid products with varying particle sizes with changes in packing density, which simulates a natural settling process that occurs during handling and transportation. Variable factors in this experiment were different types of particulate solids of different particle sizes, packing density, conveyor speed and tag position. Data are analyzed using Design of Experiments, full and fractional factorial design to identify main factors that could affect RFID detection.
