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.

The product accommodates both product line RFID support (i.e., it is configurable by a particular product) and customer RFID support (i.e., it is configurable by a particular customer and consignee). As for the additional hardware and software requirements, a centralized RFIDware Microsoft Windows -based server for the entire enterprise (in a corpora Read More

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, since real-time inventory control, tracking, and alerting capabilities could be very important advantages of RFID. As tagged inventory goes through ports, terminals, freight forwarders, and into a distribution center, the RFID tag should provide near real-time visibility of an item's whereabouts at all times.

embedded wms warehouses  capture information from the embedded RFID tags. These antennae then pass the data onto the WMS application, which accepts the information and automatically receives the inventory, thereby eliminating the manual receiving processes of counting and scanning individual items, cartons, or pallets. Real-time inventory control, tracking, and alerting capabilities would be other very important advantages of RFID. As tagged inventory goes through ports, terminals, freight forwarders, and actually into a DC, the Read More

Mainstream Enterprise Vendors Begin to Grasp Content Management Part Three: Challenges
