SAP RFID Technology in the Automotive Industry
SAP RFID Technology in the Automotive Industry. IT Guides and Other Software to Use In Your System for SAP RFID Technology in the Automotive Industry. By using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, automotive companies can eliminate material shortfalls of containers, which lead to delivery delays and, in the case of time-sensitive shipments, cause production downtime. Manufacturers, suppliers, dealers, and freight forwarders can all benefit by reducing launch and assembly delays resulting from errors in part quantities, types, and locations for containers targeted for production lines.

RFID - Myth versus Reality
The hype around the adoption of RFID as the 'hot new technology' continues. The reality is that RFID, despite the fact that this is a relatively mature technology, is still far from mainstream.
: RFID - Myth versus Reality RFID - Myth versus Reality Carla Reed - June 28, 2005 Read Comments Introduction The hype around the adoption of RFID as the hot new technology continues—this is evidenced by the proliferation of trade shows, media events, and other magnets for those in the know and those looking to learn more. One of the recent events—RFID Live, hosted by the RFID Business Journal in Chicago in April—was reminiscent of the techno buzz and media fest of the late 1990s—the days of the

RFID Case Study: HP and Wal-Mart
HP is making strides in complying with Wal-Mart's RFID mandates. This article describes the key lessons learned.
: RFID Case Study: HP and Wal-Mart RFID Case Study: HP and Wal-Mart Bill McBeath - October 20, 2004 Read Comments Introduction One of the suppliers making strides in complying with Wal-Mart s RFID mandates is HP. We can all learn some lessons from the experience of these kinds of supplier programs. The Pilot In early May, 2004, Hewlett Packard began shipping EPC-tagged printers and scanners to Wal-Mart s Dallas/Fort Worth distribution center as one of eight suppliers in Wal-Mart s initial trials. HP expects
Are You Tuned into Radio Frequency Identification?
This article examines the organizational fit of radio frequency identification (RFID) and its technology’s basic mechanics. Its prohibitive costs often account for the decision to not implement RFID. Yet some factors influencing adoption may shed new light on why RFID is important.
: the overall effectiveness of RFID technology and how it relates to an organization s business. Navigating through a complicated new system that requires its own hardware, software, and infrastructure is a daunting mission. Given the complexities of evolving standards, converting today s bar codes into tomorrow s electronic product codes (EPCs), and the prospects of how all of this changes the way a company functions, it is understandable why organizations may take a long look before making the leap to
Single Version of the Truth
Today's enterprise is no longer a single, vertically integrated organization. Globalization, outsourcing, and off-shoring have created an environment where end-to-end supply chains include many players, with a shared need for accurate and timely information.
: priorities. A warning: as RFID and sensors become widely deployed, this will add much more data and algorithms to the portfolio. So keeping from falling behind on today s operations views is critical. Considerations include : Peer-to-peer data synchronization—machine to machine interaction Community or trade partner networks—beyond the intimate tango! People to people—instant messaging paradigm Semantically align—consistency in meaning and interpretation Publish/subscribe/event architecture—a

Food and Beverage Industry Trends and Issues
Food and beverage manufacturers and distributors supplying major supermarket retailers share many common business challenges. The customers—powerful and demanding supermarkets and retail chains—want products manufactured
: no one doubts that RFID will be an absolute requirement in the future. In fact, the issue is not if, but when (see As Hype Becomes Reality, a Radio Frequency Identification Ecosystem Emerges , When will RFID Hit Main Street? , and The Three Rs of RFID: Rewards, Risk, and ROI ). RFID is just one element of a continuing process on the part of retailers to drive costs out of the supply chain. The food industry was in fact an early innovator in the exchange of electronic communication based on the Wal-Mart
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.

Jakovljevic - May 20, 2004 Read Comments Introduction At the IFS Executive Forum , which took place on March 29 and 30 in Orlando, Florida (US), leading research analysts and industry experts discussed how companies can still leverage technology to maintain their competitive edge, even during tough economic
Sales Is from Mars, Marketing Is from Venus
There is a disconnect between marketing and sales. Marketing is focused on the consumer experience while sales is all about the merchandise. Technologies, such as auto identification technologies, radio frequency identification, sensors, and voice activated technologies, may be able to narrow this gap.
: using a combination of RFID and customer preference data to create a unique digital customer experience . Consumers can create their own cosmetic concoctions, locking the secret recipe in their customer profile, accessible through a digital keychain wand imbedded with RFID. Like pre-teens playing dress-up, consumers can play with the product, enhancing the customer experience while ensuring a repeat performance (after all, this is their unique version of the product—they will certainly be back for
Tightening the Chain—Supply Chain Cost-cutting Strategies
As companies struggle to control costs, the supply chain and management of supply resources have come under scrutiny. The supply chain is one area where a company can achieve quick gains and receive a fast return on investment.
: chains within the organization. RFID Outsourcing A volatile and constantly changing RFID market is opening the door to flexibility for SMB manufacturers and retailers. There are several concerns that are addressed through this model: a full RFID implementation may be too cost-prohibitive; the organization may not have the resources to complete a forced mandate pushed down from key suppliers; or suppliers might require compliance in a short time span that means the organization cannot commit to a full
