Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold Manner Part Two: RFID Compliance
Provia's approach to radio frequency identification (RFID) compliance was to offer a bolt-on or drop-in product that works in conjunction with a company's

rfid devices  checking and barcode scanning. RFID technology tags would thereby be attached to cases and pallets, enabling each piece to be uniquely identified, since these tags transmit EPCs and communicate wirelessly to other devices over radio frequency (RF) waves. For example, ViaWare WMS would request data from a Savant server, which would return the pallet or case data for the aforementioned transactions like automated receiving, put-away verification, picking verification, cycle counting and so on. Then,

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Radio frequency identification (RFID) criteria cover tags and storage devices, readers, wireless hubs and servers, and the middleware necessary for evaluating an RFID system deployment. RFID systems are used in different situations that require the tracking of unique items. RFID tags, in the context of enterprise resource planning and supply chain management, make items visible from manufacturing through distribution. RFID tags may be used to carry basic information such as an address, to more complex information used at different stages of an assembly line.

When will RFID Hit Main Street?


The desire for improved visibility, tracking, etc. stands out as a critical issue to global firms. Most firms don't know how to get started. But as the cultural knowledge begins to spread, training comes on-line, and success stories start to get out.

rfid devices  RosettaNet, etc. Cisco Systems RFID enabled protocols—will download code to all vendors (just as they did with Wi-Fi devices) so all devices can be read by the quasi-ubiquitous Cisco routers. These will be based on EPC/UCC standards. IBM's Device interface—this competes with Cisco's, so will this confuse and limit the options of device users/buyers? FDA, FTC, Commerce Department....and so it goes! This article is from Parallax View, ChainLink Research's on-line magazine, read by over 150,000 supply Read More

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.

RFID Case Study: HP and Wal-Mart


HP is making strides in complying with Wal-Mart's RFID mandates. This article describes the key lessons learned.

rfid devices  in complying with Wal-Mart's RFID mandates is HP. We can all learn some lessons from the experience of these kinds of supplier programs. The Pilot In early May, 2004, Hewlett Packard began shipping EPC-tagged printers and scanners to Wal-Mart's Dallas/Fort Worth distribution center as one of eight suppliers in Wal-Mart's initial trials. HP expects to ship its entire range of consumer products sold through Wal-Mart many weeks before the January 2005 deadline. At HP's Memphis manufacturing plant, tags are Read More

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.

rfid devices  The components of an RFID system typically include the following. Tags and transponders , both passive and active, which uniquely identify the object(s) tagged, be it an individual item, case, or pallet of items. They transmit the electronic product codes (EPC) wirelessly to other devices. Antenna and transceiver , which are positioned strategically based on the physical layout for wireless signal recognition of tags Readers , which sense the presence of the tags and, thus of the unique items, at very Read More

Tracking Plastic Pallets and Reusable Containers with RFID Tags


How can you transport large quantities of goods efficiently, without affecting cost and profitability across the supply chain? Moreover, how do you accurately track and document the movement of these goods? Some companies are using the latest technology to manage their quantity distribution, by applying radio frequency identification (RFID) label products to plastic pallets and reusable plastic containers (RPCs).

ROI for RFID: A Case Study Part Two: Implementation and Results


If companies are to find value in radio frequency identification (RFID), they need to view this technology as more than eliminating the scanning gun from the barcode equation. Companies considering implementing RFID must think beyond the confines of the four walls of the plant and factory in order to take full advantage the benefits that this type of technology has to offer. However, as is with any emerging technology, the bottom line is to only implement RFID when the ROI justifies it.

Not too surprisingly, the implementation plan for RFID is not very different from that an enterprise-wide software implementation project. In fact, while the detailed plan has more the 260 tasks and subtasks, the major phases employed at KiMs were exactly the same as those for an ERP implementation. Specifically, the major phases were Project Planning to include project kickoff, Read More

Error Proofing with RFID


Carefully tracking components and assemblies throughout the manufacturing process can prevent costly production and sequencing errors, but executing these procedures can be difficult. While bar codes provide accurate, efficient product identification, they are not viable in many common industrial processes. Specialized RFID tags, however, are optimized for use on or around metal, and are an effective and viable alternative.
