HighJump Grows in a Period of Low Growth Through Adaptable, Broad Function Products Part Four: Challenges and User Recommendations


The competition is becoming relentless given a slew of WMS vendors delivering sophisticated collaboration, visibility, and SCEM functionality. Further many of them are also consistently profitable and have more visibility and mindshare.

HighJump, as well as most of its peers, will thus have to further craft a not easily emulated value proposition that would fend off the deepening foray of ERP vendors into the SCE market. While the ERP vendors had not originally designed their systems to deal with the constraints and exceptions, inter-enterprise visibility and real-time information in mind, the situation is going to change rather sooner than later. As the Read More

Who Needs Warehousing Management and How Much Thereof?


The warehouse is no longer merely a static storage facility. It now has to use virtually real-time data to closely match supply to demand, eliminate the need to hold excess inventory, and increase the flow of goods throughout the supply chain.

By doing this, they also avoid the need to forecast what the individual demands will be for each SKU, but rather to forecast the aggregate demand for all the unfinished generic products (i.e., product families or sub-assemblies), where the margin of forecast error is usually much lower. As a result, there are fewer deviations from forecasts and the manufacturer does not run the risk of accumulating Read More

Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold Manner Part One: Recent Annoucements


The fact that the size does not necessarily mean everything in the enterprise applications space might be proven by Provia, which certainly still continues to differentiate its value proposition despite its smaller stature and quieter nature compared to most of its adversaries. Most recently, it would be its early embrace of RFID through two offerings for different levels of RFID needs: 1) ViaWare WMS--RFID compliant product, for intrinsic RFID enablement of many processes within the supply chain, and 2) the RFIDware add-on module, for achieving outbound RFID tag application only.

Still, Wal-Mart suppliers have also been searching for ways to leverage their RFID investments within their own organizations in addition to merely fulfilling the ultimatum placed upon them. To that end, Wal-Mart has recently offered to supply information to its suppliers regarding the status of RFID tagged products as they progress through Wal-Mart''s supply chain. Read More

ToolsGroup-Statistics-based Supply Chain Planning


ToolsGroup continues to carve out a space for itself in supply chain. Not satisfied with being the last remaining independent multi-echelon inventory optimization (MEIO) vendor, ToolsGroup is pushing forward with broader supply chain capabilities centered around a core statistics-focused demand forecasting capability.

What You Should Know Before Selecting a WMS


Before an important game, you create a game plan. Before you start building a house, you have a blueprint. And before you start looking at a warehouse management system (WMS), you must define how you want your warehouse to be organized and function. This article looks at basic warehouse strategies that need to be understood to ensure that the WMS software effectively and efficiently supports the activities of the warehouse, now and in the future. This is not to say that you will not consider the best practices of the new

rf electronics  companies planning on introducing RF into the warehouse, the questions regarding the interface with a WMS are more numerous and complex. First, understand that the cost of RF is not just in the readers, the antenna systems, collection points, and labeling. It is also in training and procedural changes. Assuming that a cost-justification case has been made for RF, you must decide what devices are supported by a WMS and how you want to use RF. Essentially, the accepted methods of RF data collection are stor Read More
