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.

The system performs instant verification of data entry and provides error notification while an operator is still performing the current task. This real-time verification ensures accuracy, Read More

The Seven Types of Power Problems


Many of the mysteries of equipment failure, downtime, software, and data corruption are the result of a problematic power supply. Compounding the problem is that there is no standardized way to describe power problems. Learn more about common power disturbances, what can cause them, and how to safeguard your critical equipment—all described in Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standard terms.

Noise can cause technical equipment problems such as data errors, equipment malfunction, long- term component failure, hard disk failure, and distorted video displays. There are many different approaches to controlling noise and sometimes it is necessary to use several different techniques together to achieve the required result. Some methods are: Isolate the load via a UPS Read More

Voting Technology: An Evaluation of Requirements and Solutions


The issues created by the use of punch card ballots, an obsolete technology, during the recent US Presidential election are similar to the ones that businesses confront every day when dealing with technological change. It is therefore instructive to examine voting technology issues in the way that most businesses would approach an important information technology decision.

Interactive voting and printing applications could run on each client device, on the server computer, or be distributed between the client and server. The server tallies the votes and accumulates them in a local database. Periodically, or after the polls close, the local server transmits its local database to a central server via modem. Yet another lightweight client approach connects all the devices at every polling place to a central server, Read More

Leveraging Technology to Maintain a Competitive Edge During Tough Economic Times--A Panel Discussion Analyzed Part Four: RFID Software Issues


Logically, radio frequency identification (RFID) deployment will be a far cry from a minor development project that can be completed in a few months or weeks. It will take months and years to assess how RFID will affect manufacturing and shipping operations and IT systems. It will take time to bring software up to a pilot stage, and after that, years of fine-tuning and IT system development will be needed to fully realize the gains in operational efficiency that the technology promises.

How One Distributor Played Wal-Mart's Distribution Game-And Won


As a supplier to Wal-Mart, appliance manufacturer Haier America was required to implement a radio frequency identification (RFID) tagging system. To satisfy this requirement and to keep costs to a minimum, Haier needed a solution that would seamlessly integrate with its current enterprise resource planning (ERP) application. That’s why it turned to a custom-designed modification package. But was it enough for Wal-Mart?
