The Three Rs of RFID: Rewards, Risk, and ROI
Prominent organizations and retailers, such as Walmart and the US Department of Defense are taking advantage of radio frequency identification, which promises

rfid sensors  Rewards for Early Adopters RFID holds promise for significant bottom-line benefits, including Reduced warehouse and distribution labor costs : Warehouse and distribution costs typically represent 2 to 4 percent of operating expenses for retailers. Replacing point-and-read, labor-intensive operations with sensors that track pallets, cases, cartons, and individual products anywhere in the facility can significantly reduce labor, resulting in 30 percent or more in savings. Reduced point-of-sale labor costs Read More...

What Makes a Green Supply Chain?
The Green PhilosophyThere has been so much hype about “green” that many organizations are adopting it, but what is “green”, really? We hear and see it

rfid sensors  of radio frequency identification (RFID) and global positioning systems (GPS) Distribution Any distribution center or building has a variety of products which are constantly moving in and out of the facility.  Let’s take a step back for a moment and look at it from the outside in.  If you look outside the building, is it standing in no man’s land or is it located centrally to customers?  If an organization’s distribution center is located in the outskirts, trucks will be travelling longer Read More...
Food and Drug Safety: Prevention Better Than Cure (For Sure) - Part 1
Food production and distribution is a serious and strategic business, and I am not aware of anyone in my surroundings that takes it lightly; food can not only

rfid sensors  with radio frequency identification (RFID) sensors and accompanying applications . To that end, recently launched Lawson M3 Trace Engine is a standalone solution that combines repository, SCEM, data cleansing and integration, and workflow capabilities for food safety in extended supply chains. The product was described in great detail in my previous two-part blog series . Manufacturing execution systems (MES) are important since HACCP capabilities are often found within them, but typically a MES is Read More...
PTC Embarks on Internet of Things Journey via ThingWorx Acquisition
PTC ended 2013 by announcing it had acquired ThingWorx, creators of a platform for building and running applications for the Internet of Things (IoT), for

rfid sensors  of physical assets via RFID tags, but they can also manage the performance of individual machines and systems.   IoT is closely related to the mobile Internet trend, i.e., increasingly inexpensive and capable mobile computing devices and Internet connectivity. For many years, industrial service providers have taken advantage of machine-to-machine (M2M) technology using existing (but in some cases archaic) standards such as the open productivity and connectivity (OPC) standard within production Read More...
Sales Is from Mars, Marketing Is from Venus
There is a disconnect between marketing and sales. Marketing is focused on the consumer experience while sales is all about the merchandise. Technologies, such

Consumers can create their own cosmetic concoctions, locking the secret recipe in their customer profile, accessible through a digital keychain wand imbedded with RFID. Like pre-teens playing dress-up, consumers can play with the product, enhancing the customer experience while ensuring a repeat performance (after all, this is their unique version of the product—they will certainly be back for Read More...
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Software Evaluation Report
The Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Software Evaluation Report covers criteria for tags and storage devices, readers, wireless hubs and servers, and the

rfid sensors  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. 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

rfid sensors  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. Read More...
Practical Uses for RFID Technology in Manufacturing and Distribution Applications
Consider the ideal manufacturing and distribution process—one that eliminates human error, improves speed and efficiency, and increases information availability

rfid sensors  Uses for RFID Technology in Manufacturing and Distribution Applications Consider the ideal manufacturing and distribution process—one that eliminates human error, improves speed and efficiency, and increases information availability; a process that offers high security and delivers data without a network connection. This is what a radio frequency identification (RFID) system can do to help solve logistical problems that may be affecting your manufacturing and distribution processes. Read More...
The Middle Kingdom - From Wired to Wireless
Confused about RFID middleware? RFID middleware has a critical role to play in cleaving together and clarifying the signals and intelligence, bidirectionally

rfid sensors  from middleware developers for RFID is that the traditional security protocol to the web is a different security to and at the device level. RFID middleware has a critical role to play in cleaving together and clarifying the signals and intelligence, bidirectionally from the device layer to the business applications, or out to the communications infrastructure, to the web or satellites (figure 1). Figure 1 Middleware becomes critical, due to the significantly increasing population of devices in the Read More...
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

rfid sensors  will RFID Hit Main Street? When will RFID Hit Main Street? Featured Author - Ann Grackin - June 28, 2005 Introduction Every week on the speaking circuit I am asked this question by users and technology firms: When will we see mass adoption of RFID? I have a date. But I think I will teach you to bake bread, rather than feeding you toast! The way to proceed is to just look at the forces that can inhibit or accelerate RFID technology adoption and market growth. Inhibitors First, there are manufacturing Read More...
