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.

Thus, SSA Global too recognizes that RFID is one of the emerging technologies that will drive increased supply chain visibility, control, and compliance. Additionally, the RFID mandate to suppliers from Albertsons , Target , Wal-Mart, and the US Department of Defense proves that RFID will have a significant impact on future supply chain operations (see Read More

SAP RFID Technology in the Automotive Industry


By using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, automotive companies can eliminate material shortfalls of containers, which lead to delivery delays and, in the case of time-sensitive shipments, cause production downtime. Manufacturers, suppliers, dealers, and freight forwarders can all benefit by reducing launch and assembly delays resulting from errors in part quantities, types, and locations for containers targeted for production lines.

RFID--A New Technology Set to Explode? Part Two: Early Adopters, Challenges, and User Recommendations


Radio frequency identification or RFID has a potential of becoming a new technology inflection point. It can be a missing piece in the long-lasting puzzle of squeezing excess inventory out of supply chains, but only when (and if) it reaches a critical mass of adoption and maturity over the next several years.

radio frequency unit  User Recommendations Early Adopters Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology could potentially replace bar coding in the long term, if global technical standards develop. While the radio transmitter technology has been around for decades, the technology got a major endorsement this past fall when both the U.S. Department of Defense and retailing giants Wal-Mart and the METRO Group decided to make RFID tags a key part of their logistics. To that end, Wal-Mart has recently instructed its top one Read More

Business Intelligence for Consumer Packaged Goods: Actionable Insights for Business Decision Makers


Consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies have made big investments in data collection and integration. But, much of the data from their IT systems hasn’t been well analyzed or used. What’s needed is a new generation of business intelligence (BI) tools that can integrate cross- and inter-enterprise processes and data. Learn how BI can help you make better decisions, change business processes, and drive overall performance.

While information is now available at the micro-level throughout the supply chain, it is of questionable benefit if business processes cannot be dynamically altered to reflect what has been learned from it for example, if products cannot be rerouted based on new distribution information, or orders cannot be canceled based on lagging 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.

TEC helps Arysta LifeScience North America Reduce Risk in Enterprise Software Selection


The North American unit of Arysta LifeScience Corporation, a world leader in crop protection and life sciences, was seeking business intelligence (BI) and business performance management (BPM) solutions to streamline how information was collected and analyzed across its various business functions. It had initially contracted Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) for a standard software evaluation and selection project involving a self-service approach, supported by TEC's objective and structured methodology. However, as the early stages of the project unfolded, specific functional requirements pointed to the need for additional advisory services, and so TEC's team of experts was brought in to lead a customized project.

Once it is retrieved from the tag, it can be associated with dynamic data such as where an item originated or the date of its production. Users of EPC codes will have to purchase the numbers from EPCglobal ( www.epcglobalinc.org ), the organization behind the evolving RFID standards, and which assigns these numbers to identify the manufacturer, product, and serial number.
