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
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.

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
Vendor Defends Its Strongholds with Focused Enterprise Resource Planning Solution

RFID Case Study: Gillette and ProviaPart 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.
: an alert via an RF terminal to an operator that should then investigate. 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 Challeng
The Exacting Needs of Metal Service Centers
General enterprise resource planning (ERP) providers that are viable companies with a solid product, typically do not meet the dimensional inventory, chemical, and physical properties requirements that are vital to the metal service industry and material converter businesses.

Such omissions impede an enterprise s operation—often resulting in complete failure. See Find the Software s Fatal Flaws to Avoid Failure for more information. This article will highlight the requirements and fatal flaws that these prospective

It is important to recognize that RF technology provides the backbone—but not the nerve center—of a physical operation.In other words, RF provides the ability to gather data, but not necessarily to make use of it. RF and bar coding technologies need to be implemented in conjunction with software systems that not only gather the data,
