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.

Avoid the Perils of Service Parts Planning in Supply Chain Management


Significant differences exist between the new parts production supply chain and the service and replacement parts supply chain. Companies using conventional, new product inventory methods are missing opportunities to improve efficiency and effectiveness.

Incidentally, basic multi-echelon inventory optimization strategies (regardless of the part being a new or a spare one) involve either pooling demand by keeping inventory at central locations, or forwarding position/push stock into field locations to give great customer service. A very general rule of thumb is for the first approach to be used when demand volatility is high and demand volume is low. The latter is more appropriate for the opposite—low demand volatility Read More

Rootstock Software Steps Out on Force.com


One of my recent blog posts talked about the emergence of a few natively cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions that leverage salesforce.com’s Force.com platform.

Managing Customer Returns and RMAs


There are common and unique variations to returned material authorizations (RMAs) that can compound a company’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Identifying RMA variations enables a company to determine what needs to be simplified and what needs to be modeled in an ERP system.

An RMA typically involves a return reason code to support analyses of return patterns and potential quality problems. Additional complexity arises when the RMA is requested for an item (or customer) which does not yet exist within the database.

Inventory Control Is Perhaps the Most Powerful Tool You Have for Containing Your Warehousing Costs


Your company's success is not only dependent on sales, but also on your company's ability to say, "Yes we have that item in stock." The problem is, inventory control is usually an after thought.

Drop-Shipping-Internet Retailers' "Little Helper"?


Relying on drop-shipping (sometimes called "virtual inventory") is neither as easy nor as profitable as it may appear to be. Nothing has hurt the adoption of multichannel shopping more than orders which are delayed—or even cancelled—because of stock-outs.

damaged items  Shipping-Internet Retailers' Little Helper ? Drop-ship, or Keep in Store? Many Internet merchants increasingly try to fill orders as they receive them, without necessarily having the relevant goods in their possession.

Typically, the drop-shipper will package and ship the item, usually in a day or two (if the item Read More
