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.
: timeline. Interference from other RF devices and forms of electricity can affect RFID accuracy. Wavelengths may cancel each other out where a particular frequency is already being used. A site survey answers many questions that may arise on the IT side of an RFID implementation. It also provides a road map for reader placement, backscatter, and power requirements for new network equipment, both electrically and network architecture–wise. Interference from other radio equipment (AEN) and RF coverage of s
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
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.
: : Radio frequency identification. RF : Radio frequency. SA : Spectrum analysis ; refers to a range of values of a quantity or of a set of related quantities. 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

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
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
: 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

This article analyzes the four fundamental events in order to face, with pragmatism and effectiveness, the total reward management (TRM) challenge. Managing people is a discipline that, unlike other managerial fields, changes slowly. This is probably because the subject of analysis, the person, tends to adapt over time and by generations rather than fiscal quarters. Human resources (HR) trends are usually talked about for years or decades
