The Three Rs of RFID: Rewards, Risk, and ROI


Prominent organizations and retailers, such as Walmart and the US Department of Defense are taking advantage of radio frequency identification, which promises real time tracking of products from the manufacturing floor to the checkout terminal. Despite the typical risks associated with adopting any early-stage technology, the competitive advantage and bottom-line business benefits of RFID are significant to both retailers and suppliers. It can significantly decrease warehouse, distribution, and inventory costs; increase margins; and enhance customer service.

This enhanced visibility could significantly decrease warehouse, distribution, and inventory costs; increase margins; and enhance customer service. Several of the most prominent suppliers and retailers are already taking advantage of this new technology; Wal-Mart and the US Department of Defense (DOD) are the most Read More

RFID--A New Technology Set to Explode? Part One: RFID Technology


For retailers and the other vertical industries, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags present enormous opportunities to improve supply chain operations, since real-time inventory control, tracking, and alerting capabilities could be very important advantages of RFID. As tagged inventory goes through ports, terminals, freight forwarders, and into a distribution center, the RFID tag should provide near real-time visibility of an item's whereabouts at all times.

bar coding  for the next generation bar code—called the EPC Network . Through this program, Manhattan Associates will continue to contribute to establishing a future standard where everyday objects with EPC tags can be identified anywhere automatically. The vendor's partnerships with Microsoft, IBM , Alien , Matrics , Printronics , Symbol , Zebra , Dell , HP , and Accenture should also allow for a comprehensive and relatively rapidly deployable RFID pilots and solutions. One should note though that meanwhile many Read More

Demand-driven Planning in Manufacturing


Cover-time planning (CTP) is a "pull" system, but with the intent of planning and not merely waiting for the execution time to act.

bar coding  each identified by its bar code. Prior to this, customer orders are automatically received by dispatch and the shipment is scheduled when orders are entered into the system, since the warehouse module is populated with parameters, allowing it to divide and suggest how each order should be packaged (e.g. whole pallet, half pallet, etc.). As customers are able to use the Internet to place orders whenever they wish, the application must also automatically determine and update, in near real-time, all Read More

Leveraging Technology to Maintain a Competitive Edge During Tough Economic Times--A Panel Discussion Analyzed Part Four: RFID Software Issues


Logically, radio frequency identification (RFID) deployment will be a far cry from a minor development project that can be completed in a few months or weeks. It will take months and years to assess how RFID will affect manufacturing and shipping operations and IT systems. It will take time to bring software up to a pilot stage, and after that, years of fine-tuning and IT system development will be needed to fully realize the gains in operational efficiency that the technology promises.

bar coding  a mixed environment of bar codes and RFID tags; and optimizing business practices benefit from an identification technology that does not require line-of-sight, while dealing with materials and environments that will interfere with RFID signals (such as metal and liquid products, cold storage). Although many vendors have demonstrated success in reading multiple tags in close proximity (so-called stacking ), the misread rate or collision of tags is still a potential problem in real world situations. So Read More

The Why of Data Collection


Data collection systems work; however, they require a investment in technology. Before the investment can be justified, we need to understand why a data collection system may be preferable to people with clipboards.

bar coding  time and attendance devices, bar code scanning, radio frequency identification (RFID), and sensor based devices such as automated scales, flow meters, case counters, etc. When deciding to invest in data collection, the first question to ask is Why? Our objective is never just data collection , but are rather some business objectives like lower inventory, higher quality, better customer service, or more accurate costing. We can often meet these objectives without a data collection system. For example, Read More

How Bar Codes Can Optimize Data Recording and Information Analysis


Bar code technology allows users to analyze information to develop more accurate maintenance, personnel, and financial planning. In particular it can hasten the data recording processes in a maintenance system, as seen in its use in the aircraft maintenance process.

bar coding  the system can perform: bar coding can be used to dispatch or receive material in the technical warehouse. Checking inventory directly, on a screen is certainly more comfortable and practical than looking on the shelves, where the item may not be found. Without a direct record process in your system, all of these situations will involve a great amount of documentation, coupons, signatures, etc. Bar codes provide these types of records and allows more production in each man-hours used in the operation.
