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.

What to Expect from Your WMS


Today, companies are facing tougher competition and increasing service level requirements, all while balancing growth with shorter phase-in/phase-out cycles for new products. To succeed, they must harness information technology to support change, secure data and process quality, and improve productivity. Discover how a warehouse management system (WMS) can help you achieve those goals, and learn what to look for in a WMS.

Single Version of the Truth


Today's enterprise is no longer a single, vertically integrated organization. Globalization, outsourcing, and off-shoring have created an environment where end-to-end supply chains include many players, with a shared need for accurate and timely information.

At the broadest level, an SVoT is conceptually a virtual data repository (although the actual Read More

The Importance of Plant-level Systems


The information technology (IT) environment in manufacturing is facing a dramatic change. Traditional systems must evolve to support near real time, collaborative business models. This is especially prudent at the plant-level.

A site survey will identify issues and hurdles to an RFID implementation, and suggest helpful, industry-proven techniques to solve these problems. The equipment, connection procedures, and methodology, as well as a list of tips for completing a site survey, are explored in this second Read More

How Mobile RFID Systems Improve Operations and ROI


Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology can provide a strong return on investment (ROI) when combined with improved business processes that reduce labor and prevent errors. But mobile RFID systems, with forklift-mounted readers, can be implemented for a fraction of the cost of traditional infrastructure configurations. They can improve supply chain visibility, reduce capital expenditure, and slash labor costs.

End-to-End Monitoring Is Critical to Meeting End User Expectations Today and Tomorrow


To function as a business partner, IT must deliver service at predictable levels—and also contribute to enterprise strategy, by planning for services that enable growth. That’s why IT needs end-to-end infrastructure views that reveal issues as they happen, and track trends that predict future needs. But how can IT create unified views of the environment without draining critical resources?

Are You Tuned into Radio Frequency Identification?


This article examines the organizational fit of radio frequency identification (RFID) and its technology’s basic mechanics. Its prohibitive costs often account for the decision to not implement RFID. Yet some factors influencing adoption may shed new light on why RFID is important.

radio frequency monitoring  You Tuned into Radio Frequency Identification? Originally published - June 15, 2007 Radio frequency identification (RFID) has been around for over 60 years, so why does it have such negative connotations? Many misconceptions and horror stories of organizations'' failed implementations have been plastered all over the press, which has contributed to the negative perceptions of this re-emerging technology. Yet these failures are often due to a lack of the correct technology, deficient IT knowledge, Read More

IT Epidemic: Treating IT Client Relationship Breakdown


The frequency of breakdowns in the IT client relationship is reaching epidemic proportions. Indeed, an IT client breakdown is comparable to the onset of an illness. If caught early enough, treatment is often relatively painless. However, if left to advance to the later stages, or full maturity, the treatment will not only be invasive, but also require significant recovery time.

Database Activity Monitoring: Intrusion Detection and Security Auditing


At its core, security is all about risk reduction. One of the most effective database security practices, “defense in depth,” employs multiple layers of protection to reduce the risk of intrusion. No single level of defense is infallible, and even multiple layers cannot ensure your organization will be 100 percent impenetrable. However, they can make you far less vulnerable.

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.
