Cost-justifying Warehouse Management Technologies in Small and Midsized Warehouses


The warehouse management system (WMS) concept has matured into a collection of time-tested technologies that reduce inventory costs and increase overall inventory management efficiencies. By implementing WMS technology, organizations can achieve a higher return on their software dollars and provide better service to their customers. A WMS can provide organizations with tangible benefits that improve warehouse operations without adding headcount.

As Hype Becomes Reality, a Radio Frequency Identification Ecosystem Emerges


Radio frequency identification (RFID) is the latest technology to gain major recognition as being a sizeable market for the future. The RFID ecosystem includes a diverse grouping of solution providers, but the opportunity for market leadership remains wide open.

rf modulator  Background Radio frequency identification (RFID) has been a major topic of discussion for a couple of years now, with Wal-Mart and the United States Department of Defense driving the attention already focused on this technology to a whole new level, thus triggering the corresponding RFID hype of the media, trade publications, and analyst community. Of particular interest has been the emergence of an RFID ecosystem of hardware, middleware, software, and services companies, which are all vying for Read More

Is Your Warehouse Ready for the Upswing?


Supply chain management is a long-term strategy.

Demand-driven Planning in Manufacturing


Cover-time planning (CTP) is a "pull" system, but with the intent of planning and not merely waiting for the execution time to act.

Some users have optimized their WMS processes to pick orders faster and with increased accuracy (based on product movement frequency); and to optimize resource activity, through precise and accurate instruction handling. The best way to describe their WMS is to work backwards. Just like in the movie Memento , where the main protagonist suffers a serious short-term memory loss, and the Read More

Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold Manner Part Seven: WMS Market Impact


Since the warehouse is no longer merely a static storage facility, it now has to use 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.

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.

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 Read More

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.

Measurements of radio waves and the frequency emitted. Signal generator : 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 Read More

The Challenges of Integrating Enterprise Resource Planning and Manufacturing Execution Systems


While enterprise applications solutions are moving closer to the plant floor, and plant-level systems are moving closer to enterprise planning application functionality, these systems will not likely converge anytime soon, because they use different technologies and have different user requirements.

rf modulator  they cannot discern assets performance and other useful information. Also, the ERP application will want information on the actual units produced and the date and time the lot or batch was completed. However, the plant execution environment knows no boundary between products. It will only recognize that a series of set points have changed and that some actions have taken place. It can also connect these with customer orders and commitments. A level below plant execution software applications is the Read More

Solving Enterprise Problems: The Fully-integrated Solution of IQMS

Warehouse Management Systems: Pie in the Sky or Floating Bakery?Part Two: The Pareto Principle, Processes, and People: Assessing Your Warehouse Management System Needs


To ensure your warehouse management system is implemented as painlessly as possible, you must assess your warehouse situation before you decide on a warehouse solution. Using the Pareto Principle, where a minority of inputs yields the majority results; examining your processes; evaluating your personnel; monitoring the progress of implementation; and testing are the best ways to ensure both a successful launch and long term return on investment.

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
