Progress Software Revs Up to Higher RPM via Savvion - Part 4
Part 1 of this series began the analysis of the recent merger of Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ: PRGS) and Savvion Inc. Progress has this way made a

For the process improvement part, there was an example of how to use  Savvion BPM to drill down and analyze crew activation process efficiencies and handle exceptions by modifying processes graphically. The manager can then use Savvion to add needed resources to a location-based service to modify the process  (and adapt to changes) on the fly (no pun intended). Certainly, the demo was a recording of a real

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Radio frequency identification (RFID) criteria cover tags and storage devices, readers, wireless hubs and servers, and the middleware necessary for evaluating an RFID system deployment. RFID systems are used in different situations that require the tracking of unique items. RFID tags, in the context of enterprise resource planning and supply chain management, make items visible from manufacturing through distribution. RFID tags may be used to carry basic information such as an address, to more complex information used at different stages of an assembly line.

A Traditional "Local Touch" Leader Espouses a More Global Vision


Rather than pursuing the usual route and writing our opinions and analyses of major market trends and then giving the pertinent vendors a chance for a factual review and feedback, we’ve done the opposite, and have asked different vendors about their opinions and their approaches to market trends. Sage is the most recent vendor to join this discussion.

Due to the proximity between product development and sourcing activities in the fashion industry, many of today's fashion PLM solutions (or in other words, PLM solutions for apparel, footwear, and accessories) either are provided with sourcing capabilities together in the same package or have the capability to integrate with external sourcing modules. Hence, it makes sense that we consider NGC's e-PLM and e-SPS as a suite for fashion PLM (including sourcing) in this note. On the current basis, Read More

RFID--A New Technology Set to Explode? Part Two: Early Adopters, Challenges, and User Recommendations


Radio frequency identification or RFID has a potential of becoming a new technology inflection point. It can be a missing piece in the long-lasting puzzle of squeezing excess inventory out of supply chains, but only when (and if) it reaches a critical mass of adoption and maturity over the next several years.

So too is interference—from metal racks, liquid items, door-frames, fork-lift trucks, and so on—which requires careful positioning and failsafe testing of tags and readers alike, especially while read-ranges of high-frequency tags remain quite short. Similarly, the frequencies available vary across the globe, requiring international agreement and 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.

Vendors Beware! It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It.


A study from Iowa State University’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering suggests that the format and organization of a proposal can significantly affect a vendor’s chance of winning a contract. And we thought those university professors didn’t know much about the real world!

Being a scientist, after all, he wondered whether there were factors beyond the content of the proposals that affected the chances of success. So he did a study, which was published in the Communications of the ACM , a leading professional journal. Read More

How Mobile RFID Systems Improve Operations and ROI


Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology can provide a strong return on investment (ROI) when combined with improved business processes that reduce labor and prevent errors. But mobile RFID systems, with forklift-mounted readers, can be implemented for a fraction of the cost of traditional infrastructure configurations. They can improve supply chain visibility, reduce capital expenditure, and slash labor costs.
