A How-to Guide for a Radio Frequency Identification Site Survey


As organizations prepare for a radio frequency identification (RFID) implementation, they often don't understand the preliminary work necessary to begin the project. The importance of a site survey can influence the success or failure of an RFID project.

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

RFID Case Study: Gillette and Provia Part Two: Challenges and Lessons Learned


Compliance with the market RFID mandate has unfortunately preceded the achievements of applied physics and computer science. One of the main obstacles is the lack of integration, since there is a dearth of software tools from enterprise application integration vendors to get data from RFID tags and readers into existing business systems, meaning that companies are often forced to do expensive custom integration work.

The above examples show only a part of the required verifications and additional business logic that RFID deployment may demand. While an additional software layer might help with verifying and reconciling inconsistencies and overflowing or missing data, it is apparent that RFID imposes quite a more complex data manipulation. This is Part Two of a two-part Case Study. Part One provided Background and Set the Goals. Auxiliary Read More

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.

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 Read More
