The complexity of the supply chain for fresh products and fruits is increased by the perishable nature of the product as well as by legislative constraints. RFID technology may address some of these issues through real-time monitoring and traceability. In this paper, we present the design and implementation of an innovative RFID-based information system for the logistics management of dried figs. A systematic method is proposed to optimise system performance. Our tests in a Cooperative, indicate that the RFID-based system may improve warehousing activities, increase customer service through online product traceability and reduce operational costs.

Vulcan case study, future proofing a scrap yard - Case Study
“Quality second generation analyser that is well built, robust and fast. Perfect for what we need in the scrap yard.” As a start-up scrap yard, Romuta wanted to build an advanced, digitalised scrap yard of the future. They met with Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science team to test the Vulcan laser induced breakdown (LIBS) analyser, being impressed with its speed in accurately identifying alloys and data management. Now with a Vulcan, the team has been able to start to achieve their vision. Founded...
Noise measurement in the fast lane! - case study
Due to the nature of the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) work, noise is an inevitable by-product of its daily activities. Consequently to ensure the welfare of both its staff and the community in which it operates, VOSA undertakes regular noise assessments to ensure that the relevant regulations are being adhered to, thereby protecting both the environment in which it operates as well as all staff involved in the operations. VOSA provides a range of licensing, testing and enforcement services, with...
Ilmor Engineering’s choice for detail and accuracy - Case study
As one of the world’s top racing engine design and manufacturers, noise levels in the workplace have always been an issue for Ilmor Engineering. But when they won a large contract with the US giant General Motors to design and manufacture a new turbocharged V6 racing engine for the 2012 IndyCar championship, its managers knew immediately this would result in significantly increased production as well as noise levels across the manufacturing and testing departments. At the time, the company’s...
Accelerating with Bugatti - Case study
When the Bugatti Owners’ Club established itself in 1929, its members didn’t really have too much to worry about when it came to issues such as road congestion and noise. But just as cars have moved on with the times so has the Club. The Club applies a strict noise level threshold for competing cars at their renowned meetings on Prescott Hill near Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. Cirrus Research plc has been working closely with the Club over recent years using a CR:245/3 environmental noise monitor to...
