Abstract: This experience report presents an overview of the Phalanx software system from Spartan Solutions. This is an RFID-based asset-tracking solution, exploiting robust hand-held PDA-based scanners with intermittent wireless connectivity to integrate operational activities with ERP/logistical information systems for the plant-rental sector. Unusual challenges in the operating environment and user community have been overcome using novel techniques and unique combinations of technology and methodology. The Phalanx system is an exemplar of an innovative RFID application overcoming significant data management problems. Wireless security issues have been addressed and the system includes internal web-services interfaces that are now being extended for exploitation in operational and corporate oversight applications. The middleware platform enables integration of previously separate applications, with extension of business processes to the operational domain. The experiences reported have been gained in development, deployment and use in several countries and offer an insight into the effectiveness of an RFID-enabled infrastructure for improved business performance in a new commercial sector.
