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.

Leveraging Technology to Maintain a Competitive Edge During Tough Economic Times--A Panel Discussion Analyzed Part Four: RFID Software Issues


Logically, radio frequency identification (RFID) deployment will be a far cry from a minor development project that can be completed in a few months or weeks. It will take months and years to assess how RFID will affect manufacturing and shipping operations and IT systems. It will take time to bring software up to a pilot stage, and after that, years of fine-tuning and IT system development will be needed to fully realize the gains in operational efficiency that the technology promises.

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 while in its raw form, regardless of the variety or quantity of product, the data shows no relationship between pallet, Read More

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.

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 Read More

Is There a Panacea for Enterprise Software Pricing Yet?


While enterprise applications are becoming a commodity, their pricing schemes have yet to follow suit. Users are put in a costly position where the "fine print" clauses of implementation contracts may inhibit reasonable expectations for software warranties.

As Hype Becomes Reality, a Radio Frequency Identification Ecosystem Emerges


Radio frequency identification (RFID) is the latest technology to gain major recognition as being a sizeable market for the future. The RFID ecosystem includes a diverse grouping of solution providers, but the opportunity for market leadership remains wide open.

rf schematics  Background Radio frequency identification (RFID) has been a major topic of discussion for a couple of years now, with Wal-Mart and the United States Department of Defense driving the attention already focused on this technology to a whole new level, thus triggering the corresponding RFID hype of the media, trade publications, and analyst community. Of particular interest has been the emergence of an RFID ecosystem of hardware, middleware, software, and services companies, which are all vying for Read More
