FIATECH Publishes RFID Technology Guide
January 11, 2011

FIATECH, an industry consortium that provides global leadership in identifying and accelerating the development, demonstration and deployment of fully integrated and automated technologies, has announced the recent publication of “RFID for Materials Management and Productivity Improvement,” a guide for the construction industry regarding implementation of RFID technology.

The construction industry is just beginning to realize the many benefits to using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology in the supply chain. According to FIATECH, this publication is the first comprehensive reference book to guide users through the process of accessing and mastering the requirements of RFID technology and applying it to leverage its full potential on a construction site. This concise resource is a collaborative effort, compiled from information on products from manufacturers, data from capital projects industry companies, input from experts in the RFID technology field, standards from global organizations, and contributions from academic institutions.

“Overall, this book represents a great contribution to the implementation of RFID in materials management and other construction projects. It is very easy to read and very well organized,” says David Grau, Assistant Professor, Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at The University of Alabama, who is also now partnering with FIATECH on a new project to demonstrate the feasibility and accelerate the incorporation of passive RFID technologies in the construction industry.

Copies of the “RFID for Materials Management and Productivity Improvement” publication are available from FIATECH. A discounted rate is available for FIATECH members. For information on this and other RFID-related work FIATECH is engaged in, contact Sharon Bickford, FIATECH Project Manager.
