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.

Point of Sale: To Stand Alone or Not?


When selecting a point of sale (POS) solution, users have a choice between stand-alone solutions and integrated solutions. They should first evaluate core and non-core components of POS systems, and assess the strengths and weaknesses of best-of-breed and integrated approaches.

All these hardware devices are tools used to increase customer satisfaction and to ensure their loyalty. User Recommendations Should the POS solution be stand-alone, or not? Depending on the case, here are the recommendations: For a retailer who already has a retail system, the solution is probably the best-of-breed approach. Therefore, when evaluating a new POS Read More

Wetmetrics


The Internet is having an identity crisis. Long regarded as a powerful tool for cost reduction and service enhancement, the Internet is falling short of its promise because of the real and perceived threat of identity theft. Financial losses and insurance costs are mounting, as organizations struggle to protect their information perimeters and improve the strength of their authentication systems to ensure that the authorized user is present during the sign-in process. The widespread use and misuse of passwords as authentication tokens is generally cited as a cause of the accelerating erosion of user confidence and the increasing incidence of identity theft. It is generally agreed that passwords are not enough. Much has been lost, however, in the race toward person-present authentication systems. While the application of passwords is fraught with risk, the introduction of complex authentication infrastructures and cumbersome end user technology has eroded usability and increased the cost of security dramatically. This paper describes a new authentication approach that retains the simplicity and low cost of passwords, while gracefully introducing as much person-present assurance as is required by the application.

PKI and Biometrics Ready for Take-Off


Expect the new e-signature law to bolster both the PKI and biometric markets. This new law allows documents signed through digital signatures to have the same legal ramifications as documents signed in traditional wet-ink.

biometric identification  TEC expects PKI and biometric products to gain momentum. The new law, signed by President Clinton on June 30th, makes electronic signatures as legal and binding as pen-to-paper signatures. PKI stands for Public Key Infrastructure, and is a technology that is used to authenticate the origin, or owner, of a file or document through the use of both public and private keys. Biometrics is also a technology that is used to authenticate the origin, or owner, of data by using a form of personal identification Read More

Active Execution Management--Delivering on the RFID Promise


Active Execution Management captures radio frequency identification (RFID) and electronic product code (EPC) data and integrates it into the supply chain business process. AXM associates individual EPC events (the observation of an EPC tag at an RFID reader) with the supply chain transaction that is currently being executed and then determines if that supply chain transaction is executing as planned. AXM is able to make this determination by comparing key performance indicators of the supply chain transaction with the characteristics of the EPC event. The paper describes multiple business cases, such as promotions management, deductions management, complex international shipments, and spoilage management, and shows how RFID data can be leveraged to improve supply chain performance.

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.

biometric identification  Three Rs of RFID: Rewards, Risk, and ROI Introduction The promise of radio frequency identification (RFID) is every supply chain manager's dream—real time tracking of every single product, from manufacture to checkout.
