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.

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.

Namely, the process to gather bar code data follows a very structured and straightforward practice, requiring a stock-keeping unit (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, Read More

Aras Innovator 11 Makes PLM Social and Mobile


Aras recently announced general availability of Aras Innovator 11, which introduces visual collaboration that uses social technology within the product lifecycle management (PLM) software platform. The collaborative platform was made to be really easy, so one doesn’t have to be a computer-aided design (CAD) professional to use it.

For example, comments are part of a PLM item (e.g., bills of material, parts, engineering change orders, etc.) instead of just being attached to a viewable-only item. All functionality comes included with Aras open source subscription. The product can be run either on premises or in cloud, while the other products are generally cloud only.   Aras’ recent cloud, social, and mobile PLM software moves are in tune with our recent trends and Read More

Food and Beverage "Delights"


Food and beverage manufacturers and distributors have many challenges on their plate, and even industry giants cannot afford to sit back. Given this backdrop, how can small to medium manufacturers cope with the same external pressures with comparatively fewer resources?

A more practical long-term solution in such an environment, albeit with a more expensive initial investment, is a voice-directed operation using voice recognition (VR) technology. Manhattan Associates , the WMS leader, reports that the productivity improvements derived from the VR Read More

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.

As the Read More

SouthWare Excellence Series: Making Excellence Easier Part One: Company Background and Product Overview

Analyzing Manhattan Associates’ Supply Chain Platform Play - Part 1


My recent article on Manhattan Associates (NASDAQ: MANH) and RedPrairie Corporation stated that these two vendors continue to duke it out at almost every large-scale selection deal for a warehouse management system (WMS), distribution labor management system (LMS), and/or transportation management system (TMS) solution. But over the last few years they have also pursued

The only applications that are not yet fully on the SCPP platform are demand planning and inventory optimization. But the indications that I got at the very recent National Retail Federation (NRF) BIG Retail Show 2011 were that these solutions might also be platform-enabled by the Momentum 2011 conference in late May 2011, and the conference tag will be “Platform Thinking Activated.” We will have to stay Read More

Taking Stock of TAKE Supply Chain Solutions - Part 1


Over the past several years I’ve repeatedly heard of a supply chain management (SCM) software and professional services company called ClearOrbit that was recently renamed TAKE Supply Chain.

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 schematic  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
