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.

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  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

The Supply Chain of Sitcoms-Enhanced with Radio Frequency Identification


Imagine what sitcoms like Cheers, Laverne and Shirley, and Green Acres would look like if they were radio frequency identification (RFID) enhanced. Then picture the impact that RFID technology can have on the customer experience in your own enterprise.

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

How Can Fashion Companies Benefit from Lean Supply Chains?


Fashion companies need to respond quickly and strategically to major changes occurring in today’s global supply chains. Implementing a lean supply chain management strategy can enable cost savings and more efficient operations by realigning process according to a demand-driven model. Lean supply chain management uses Web-based technologies to create and maintain dynamic supplier networks. Such networks are able to deliver the highest customer value at the lowest cost. It also lays the groundwork for the next level of hands-free, wireless radio frequency identification-enabled processes. Intentia, in cooperation with industry experts, have written a series of thought leadership white papers on the concept of implementing lean supply chain in the fashion industry. The first of this series, “Lean Is Fashionable”, explores the impact of lean practices in the fashion and apparel industry during a period of momentous change.

ROI for RFID: A Case Study Part One: Company Background


Radio frequency identification (RFID) is the latest buzzword in the world of manufacturing and distribution technology. If you believe the press releases, it is a panacea and cure-all for what ails the industry. While RFID may not solve world hunger, you may not want to propose a solution without it. This research note looks at a recent and successful, implementation of RFID, examining the characteristics of the process and common obstacles and speed bumps to avoid.

radio frequency  is the theory of radio frequency identification (RFID) and the embedding of specially activated tags in products, product packages, and product platforms. Specifically, RFID tags are small integrated circuits connected to an antenna, which can respond to an interrogating RF signal with simple identifying information, or with more complex signals depending on the size of the integrated circuit. RFID has advantages over bar codes such as the ability to hold more data and to change the stored data as Read More

The Trap of Accountancy Systems; When to Move on to ERP


The differences between ERP and accountancy solutions are huge. Accountancy solutions help with financial management and statutory reporting, but do little to streamline or control operational activities.
