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.

Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold Manner Part Eight: Challenges and User Recommendations


There are some indications that the main burden for RFID compliance will fall on suppliers, and not on retailers. Thus, these companies should start evaluating RFID technology soon as to avoid paying exorbitant compliance costs, in the nick of time or ensuing penalties due to their noncompliance after the deadline.

Namely, the process to gather bar code data follows a very structured and straightforward practice, requiring a SKU, case, or pallet to be scanned individually, whereas in an RFID environment, data collection is not such a discrete process. Namely, a bundle of data is collected in one scan, regardless of the variety or quantity of product, while in its raw form, the data shows no relationship between pallet, case, and SKU, necessary Read More

Will Recent Acquisition Catalyze Catalyst’s Strategy? Part Two: Current Strategy


Catalyst is one of the first supply chain execution suppliers to offer both the "flow-through" functionality and traditional warehouse management features in one system, allowing a facility to run in either or both modes. Its current strategy, termed "Best-for-Business," is to offer componentized products based on an open, modular technology, and solution-neutral consulting services driven by customers' business goals.

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

Project Lifecycle Management Implies Long Term Value; Forget the Total Cost of Ownership Fuss


Understanding the nature and specifics of your product development life cycles, and especially new product design and initiation, can help you realize tangible cost savings and will offset the total cost of ownership of a product lifecycle management system.

rf schematic  Lifecycle Management Implies Long Term Value; Forget the Total Cost of Ownership Fuss Background Product lifecycle management (PLM) software vendors are consistent in their belief that PLM applications software is well worth the investment because the life cycle costs of new product design and initiation (NPDI) are inherently weighted at the front end. Therefore the better job a company does in managing an efficient process toward NPDI will imply considerable cost savings over time. After a product Read More

RFID--A New Technology Set to Explode? Part Two: Early Adopters, Challenges, and User Recommendations


Radio frequency identification or RFID has a potential of becoming a new technology inflection point. It can be a missing piece in the long-lasting puzzle of squeezing excess inventory out of supply chains, but only when (and if) it reaches a critical mass of adoption and maturity over the next several years.
