As Hype Becomes Reality, a Radio Frequency Identification Ecosystem Emerges Part Three: Radio Frequency Identification Opportunities Abound and Summary


We may soon find radio frequency identification (RFID) tags routinely associated with common products. However, in order for RFID to achieve its full potential, the gap between the vision of RFID and the current realities of RFID must be closed.

transponders  decreasing costs of tags, transponders, antennae, and sensory network equipment will also have a profound impact on the potentially ubiquitous nature of RFID technology. As far as implementation costs are concerned, practice makes perfect; so as more and more RFID implementations are completed by experienced systems integrators and as the ecosystem of service providers grows, competition should drive implementation costs downward. In addition, while maintenance contracts for RFID services can generate Read More

SCE Leaders Partner To See Beyond Their Portfolios


Recent partnerships that Manhattan Associates and RedPrairie have struck with demand planning and/or integration providers might indicate an ongoing 'collaboration' of the planning and execution sides of supply chain management (SCM) as to create one adaptive supply chain.

transponders  consists of tags or transponders, which transmit Electronic Product Codes (EPCs) and communicate wirelessly to other devices over radio frequency (RF) waves. Attached to physical objects, including the actual product as well as the cartons, pallets and containers in which they are shipped, the tags should uniquely identify the items, as readers communicate with the tag via RF. In a distribution center (DC), once within range of a reader, the data is captured, accepted and then executed against by a SCE Read More

SAP RFID Technology in the Automotive Industry


By using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, automotive companies can eliminate material shortfalls of containers, which lead to delivery delays and, in the case of time-sensitive shipments, cause production downtime. Manufacturers, suppliers, dealers, and freight forwarders can all benefit by reducing launch and assembly delays resulting from errors in part quantities, types, and locations for containers targeted for production lines.

transponders  Industry RFID technology uses transponders or tags that have data written to them that can be read by RFID readers. This enables containers equipped with transponders or tags to be identified automatically. Typically, a transponder contains data such as a kanban number, container identifier, batch identifier, or other identifier. However, the content depends on the transponder: in general, active tags contain more information than passive tags, which contain only one unique number. RFID readers are Read More
