Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems, which are the important technology to identify objects using tags, readers, and sensors, have been used in many applications. Recently, the performance evaluation of RFID systems is required to construct effective RFID systems as the development of RFID systems increases. However, most existing researches are limited to systematic factors related to RFID hardware systems. Therefore, we propose the environmental factors affecting on the performance of RFID systems and verify the reliability of RFID systems through defined factors. For doing the evaluation, we construct a prototype of product control RFID system and simulate our system with the proposed factors. As the results, we describe the factors to construct effective RFID systems.
