Can You Hear Me Now: The True Role of Voice-directed Picking in Warehouse Management
Although voice-directed picking may take distributors to higher logistics levels someday, operations managers should try listening to their warehouse personnel for now. Warehouse workers are the real experts on a company's warehouse, its product, and its customer.
: keying digits into the RF device, or on reading or writing a pick ticket. Hands-free and eyes-free also means fewer accidents on the job. An operator driving a forklift into a rack because he or she was looking at a screen, or a picker inadvertently walking into product for the same reason are just a couple examples of accidents that can be avoided. Eyes-free is also a significant feature because most picking errors happen in RF and paper environments when the device is being returned to the holster. For
RFID--A New Technology Set to Explode?Part One: RFID Technology
For retailers and the other vertical industries, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags present enormous opportunities to improve supply chain operations, since real-time inventory control, tracking, and alerting capabilities could be very important advantages of RFID. As tagged inventory goes through ports, terminals, freight forwarders, and into a distribution center, the RFID tag should provide near real-time visibility of an item's whereabouts at all times.
: their existing investments in RF and barcode infrastructure. To facilitate this dual mode of operation, RedPrairie has integrated RFID functionality with traditional processing so that distribution operations are independent of the data capture source, which should enable customers to take early advantage of RFID benefits, such as increased inventory visibility and accuracy, reduced labor costs and faster cycle times, without disrupting existing operations. Finally, as RFID technology matures, it will ena
Forming RF Beams and Making Wi-Fi Faster on Purpose with 802.11n
Radio communications are subject to unpredictable behavior due to environmental dependencies and various types of interference. But with the proper operating parameters and an agile antenna system, many of these impairments can be mitigated. Using smart antenna technology like Wi-Fi, with its adaptive real-time system, you can greatly improve the transport of demanding applications in challenging wireless environments.

When will RFID Hit Main Street?
The desire for improved visibility, tracking, etc. stands out as a critical issue to global firms. Most firms don't know how to get started. But as the cultural knowledge begins to spread, training comes on-line, and success stories start to get out.

Featured Author - Ann Grackin Introduction Every week on the speaking circuit I am asked this question by users and technology firms: When will we see mass adoption of RFID? I have a date. But I think I will teach you to bake bread, rather than feeding you toast! The way to proceed is to just look at the forces that can inhibit or accelerate RFID technology adoption and

Warehouse Management Systems by the Numbers
When it comes to warehouse management systems (WMS), the stats are both shocking and thought-provoking. And although you don't see these stats in the marketing brochures of WMS vendors, you need to think about them before you purchase a WMS.

At Last—A Complete (and Successful) RFID Implementation
A radio frequency identification implementation is a major undertaking for any organization—a project with ample risk of failure. This entire series is a step-by-step guide to the process, with this final part including a comprehensive glossary of key terms for better understanding.
: A device that produces RF signals at preset frequencies, strengths, and durations. This will be hooked up to a ¼ wave dipole antenna via a coaxial cable; it will transmit the generated RF field. Smart label : This is a label that contains an RFID tag. It is considered “smart” because it can store such information as a unique serial number, and it communicates with the reader. Tag : The RFID tag is composed of a microchip and a flexible antenna encased in a plastic-coated inlay. UCC : Uniform Code
