RFID ... For Customers?
Recently I spoke at the National Retail Federation in the center of retail: New York City! The big buzz this year, no surprise, was about RFID.

rfid cards  bunch of misconceptions about RFID in retail that were front and center in our discussion—poor ROI, reluctant consumers, over investing, overly well-honed processes—instead of attacking the huge delta of lost sales and waste still in the retail supply chain. Replenishment—Making it Smart First, I want to take issue with the whole concept of POS, telling the whole story about replenishment. I have really come full circle on this issue, watching the actual behavior of customers. I used to think,

Time Tracking and Attendance Primer: Beyond the Clock


Punch clocks, clock card machines, Bundy clocks, time recorders. Most organizations are opting for newer methods to track their employees’ time and attendance. Today’s time tracking technology is not just about capturing hours—it’s about where those hours are allocated and how productive they are. TEC analyst Sherry Fox reviews some of the key features of current time tracking software and highlights some popular vendors.

The reader records the time of entry and exit of the employee and transmits the information via the enabling software. Touch-screen Technology —With advances in touch-screen technology (and its increased availability and affordability, in the form of, for example, tablet computers), employees can clock in at touch-screen terminals either by using a keypad to an their employee ID 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.

rfid cards  environments that interfere with RFID signals (such as metal and liquid products, or cold storage), are just a few. 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 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, Read More

RFID Architecture Strategy


Early adopters of radio frequency identification (RFID) are beginning to look at enterprise scale solution design and integration are emerging as key focus areas. Infosys has designed an optimal RFID architecture strategy based on lessons learnt from early adopters and Infosys experience in providing real time control and data acquisition solutions in the telecom and process control industries.

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.

rfid cards  across the globe, and RFID requires an international agreement or standards on wavelengths and signal strengths. Then, there is the well-debated privacy issue, which has been exploited by the press and a number of, rightfully or not, concerned consumer organizations. In theory, these issues have already penetrated our lives—whether it be the data from loyalty and frequent flyer cards; EZ highway toll passes; credit and debit cards; cell phone cards and bills, and the numerous, and easily obtainable Read More

How RFID Technology Can Enhance Your Asset Management Program


Even though the technology has been around in some form since World War II, chances are that you think of Wal-Mart’s supply chain initiative when you hear the words “radio frequency identification,” or “RFID.” Wal-Mart is already seeing a return on their 2005 investment. But does RFID technology make as much sense for asset management as for supply chain management?

Beyond the Tag: Finding RFID Value in Manufacturing and Distribution Applications


Radio frequency identification (RFID) has been around for more than thirty years, and today’s manufacturers are using this technology to help connect trading partners and align supply chains. But just as businesses need to look beyond the manufacturing supply chain to see the benefits of investing in RFID, they need to look beyond the tag to understand how RFID will create value and provide a return on investment (ROI).

ERP Vendors Intrude on SCE/WMS Safe Haven


Within the warehouse management system (WMS) market, which is still the main breadwinning offering for most of the SCE vendors, most products are functionally on par with mere nuances in ease of configuration or industry focus to differentiate the winner. ERP vendors have taken advantage of this unfavorable perception for WMS specialists to in the very least shore up their huge install bases, if not compete for some "green field" WMS opportunities.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Software Evaluation Report


The Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Software Evaluation Report covers criteria for 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.
