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.

Processing Complex Events (During These, oh well, Complex Times) - Part III


Part I of this blog series introduced the concept of complex event processing (CEP) and possible needs for CEP software applications. One such broad CEP platform, Progress Apama, has been offered by Progress Software Coporation after acquiring formerly independent Apama LTD in 2005. Part II then discussed Apama’s current state of affairs and its real-life deployments at companies outside its

Given the ongoing global war on terror (even if the Obama Administration might name it differently), another logical market for CEP is intelligence and surveillance services, though this is still not that exploited outside the US. Here, StreamBase and AgentLogic are the leading vendors. But even more than in the secretive financial services Read More

Lean Maintenance: Best Practices to Turn Asset Management into a Profit Center


It’s common knowledge that asset downtime disrupts production and drives up both process and per-unit operating costs. However, executives often lose sight of this because they focus on output, not on the assets used to create it. The irony is that companies can use asset performance management not only to make more widgets, but to make each widget more profitably.

Clearly these capabilities contribute both to the streamlining of the maintenance work Read More

Smaller Vendors Can Still Provide Relevant Business Systems Part Three: Project Oriented Organizations


The unique business needs of project-oriented organizations, when addressed by large ERP vendors that offer general-purpose enterprise software, typically require heavy customization in order to work. On the other hand, when project-oriented organizations turn to small off-the-shelf project-management solutions, these solutions are soon outgrown by the user company.

Contemporary Business Intelligence Tools


Tools under the business intelligence (BI) umbrella combine to convert data into information, and information into decisions for action. Dashboards and scorecards are two such tools. Though often confused, they have functional difference, especially in modern BI suites.

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.

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 technology (see SCE Leaders Partner To See Beyond Their Portfolios ). This technology, which has been on almost everyone''s lips lately, seems to be heading for the mainstream and boardroom priorities, almost directly from scientific labs—its Read More
