ROI for RFID: A Case Study Part Two: Implementation and Results


If companies are to find value in radio frequency identification (RFID), they need to view this technology as more than eliminating the scanning gun from the barcode equation. Companies considering implementing RFID must think beyond the confines of the four walls of the plant and factory in order to take full advantage the benefits that this type of technology has to offer. However, as is with any emerging technology, the bottom line is to only implement RFID when the ROI justifies it.

How Biometrics in ERP Can Enable Cost Savings and Increase Operational Efficiencies


One technology that is currently flying under the radar in the manufacturing enterprise resource planning (ERP) space is biometrics. Biometric solutions aren’t currently getting as much press as say the cloud or big data. But, when properly integrated with an ERP system, biometrics can help an organization reduce costs and improve operational efficiencies. And best of all, a company doesn’t need a

The biometric device virtually eliminates the “buddy-punch” problem and also gives management more accurate and real-time information on the status of an employee. Shop floor data collection including the tracking of OEE (operational effectiveness events) has often been little more than a dream to many manufacturers.
