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
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.
: as soon as an RF device was placed in their hands, it was too much for them to handle. Someone that is a receiver in your manual warehouse may end up being a picker in your automated warehouse. Now if they were getting paid receiver money what do you do? In a lot of cases, people who have worked with a company for several years could tell you everything you would ever want to know about the current placement of the product, the current pick ticket, the customer demands, the vendors, etc. But when the new

EAM Versus CMMS: What s Right for Your Company? Part One
As companies continue to look for more areas from which to squeeze out revenues and reduce expenses, enterprise asset management (EAM) and computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) software continue to receive good press as the systems providing an answer--and with justification.

Who Needs Warehousing Management and How Much Thereof?
The warehouse is no longer merely a static storage facility. It now has to use virtually 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.
: the generic product, and performing the final packaging and labeling as orders are taken and shipped. By doing this, they also avoid the need to forecast what the individual demands will be for each SKU, but rather to forecast the aggregate demand for all the unfinished generic products (i.e., product families or sub-assemblies), where the margin of forecast error is usually much lower. As a result, there are fewer deviations from forecasts and the manufacturer does not run the risk of accumulating
