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.

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.

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.

To that end, zone picking or batch order picking is a method of subdividing a picking list by areas within a storeroom for more efficient and rapid order picking. A zone-picked order must be grouped to a single location before delivery or must be delivered to different locations, such as work centers. Packing and marking would entail the activities of packing for safe Read More

PLM as a Strategic Weapon: An Underlying PlanetPTC Live 2011 Theme - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series talked about the major (blockbuster of a sort) announcements at PTC’s PlanetPTC Live 2011 annual user conference, which was held in mid-June 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada, US. These announcements were as follows: General availability (GA) of nine PTC Creo 1.0 design applications. Showcasing the Windchill 10.0 product lifecycle management (PLM) suite. The acquisition

The application marketplace (AppStore of a sort) will allow broader coverage without a huge development staff. Needless to say, it will be easier to integrate ERP data to PLM and CAD data. With fairly high penetration rates in their core base and strong competitors, pulling more people into PLM or publishing more PLM content is an avenue to more incremental users for every PLM vendor. Thus, look for Siemens and Read More

Satisfied with Your Supply Chain Management? Tell Us in this Brief Survey!


As I’m in the process of developing the 2012 Supply Chain Management (SCM) Buyer’s Guide, which will be discussing the challenges that businesses face with managing their supply chains and the role of software in mitigating those challenges, I thought it would be worthwhile to conduct a short survey and see how companies today are faring with some important SCM issues.

But faced with the reality of extended supply chains and its slew of associated challenges, these efforts have often led to varied and disparate results across businesses. The main culprit has been the lack of a dynamic linking of processes throughout the chain and the inability to establish a rapid flow of information across the chain. Therefore, I wanted to focus more on the elements that often elude businesses in their Read More
