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

rfid eoftware  to Explode? Part One: RFID Technology RFID Technology Supply chain technology has, for some time, been based on the traditional bar-code technology familiar to ordinary shoppers and consumers, but recently the software capability has been expanded to also use radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. While radio ID tag-enabled software is still just a miniscule part of total supply chain management (SCM) providers' revenues, more and more user companies and software vendors are adopting this

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.

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.

Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold Manner Part One: Recent Annoucements


The fact that the size does not necessarily mean everything in the enterprise applications space might be proven by Provia, which certainly still continues to differentiate its value proposition despite its smaller stature and quieter nature compared to most of its adversaries. Most recently, it would be its early embrace of RFID through two offerings for different levels of RFID needs: 1) ViaWare WMS--RFID compliant product, for intrinsic RFID enablement of many processes within the supply chain, and 2) the RFIDware add-on module, for achieving outbound RFID tag application only.
