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 printer  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 to ship its entire range of consumer products sold through Wal-Mart many weeks before the January 2005 deadline. At HP's Memphis manufacturing plant, tags are

Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold Manner Part Two: RFID Compliance


Provia's approach to radio frequency identification (RFID) compliance was to offer a bolt-on or drop-in product that works in conjunction with a company's existing logistics transactional software solution and process flows. This should put the suppliers back into control of prioritizing their IT projects because they could supposedly thereby be fairly easily and quickly made compliant with Wal-Mart or the DoD requirements for RFID. The next step for them would then be to look at how they can reap the benefits of RFID internally within their own operations.

Printronix was reportedly the first manufacturer with an ultra high frequency (UHF), class one smart label solution available commercially to help Wal-Mart, the DoD, their suppliers and other retailers conform to RFID specifications.

RFID Case Study: Gillette and Provia Part Two: Challenges and Lessons Learned


Compliance with the market RFID mandate has unfortunately preceded the achievements of applied physics and computer science. One of the main obstacles is the lack of integration, since there is a dearth of software tools from enterprise application integration vendors to get data from RFID tags and readers into existing business systems, meaning that companies are often forced to do expensive custom integration work.

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.

Slap'n'Ship: Is This Any Way To Do RFID?


Here's the dilemma. Your largest customer has mandated that, to continue doing business with you, product shipped to their distribution centers must be encoded and labeled with RFID tags. None of your other customers have expressed a need for this requirement in the near term future. You can't afford to lose the business and revenue; nor can you justify a full-blown RFID implementation costing several hundreds of thousands of dollars. This is not a business nightmare. This is reality. This white paper looks at a compromise position offered by 3i Infotech and its warehouse management solution, ORION™ Enterprise WMS. This position is aptly described in the industry as the slap'n'ship approach to the RFID dilemma. This paper looks at the advantages and disadvantages of slap'n'ship and how ORION™ Enterprise WMS can preserve and maximize your initial foray into RFID.

Jack Link's Beef Jerky Case Study: "Wal-Mart Didn't Make Me Do It" Part Three: Expected Benefits and Lessons Learned


The nagging question is, "Can SMEs justify RFID?" The answer is an emphatic "Yes." While SMEs may not have the economies of scale of large companies, their business case could end up being more positive since they typically do not face the “innovator’s dilemma” of an established barcode infrastructure.
