Electronic Product Code (EPC): A Key to RFID
The real benefits of radio frequency identification will be achieved, when the integration of the EPC data will be a substantial part for the control of supply chain business processes.
: Again back to analogy, PML would be equivalent to a web site, describing the physical characteristics of the product. As already discussed in SCP and SCE Need to Collaborate for Better Fulfillment , in addition to these demanding functional capabilities of supply chain management (SCM) applications, seamless integration of transactional and decision-support applications has become quite important, and, consequently, modern SCE systems provide the tactical, transactional backbone for order fulfillment and
Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold MannerPart One: Recent Annoucements
The fact that the size does not necessarily mean everything in the enterprise applications space might be proven by Provia, which certainly still continues to differentiate its value proposition despite its smaller stature and quieter nature compared to most of its adversaries. Most recently, it would be its early embrace of RFID through two offerings for different levels of RFID needs: 1) ViaWare WMS--RFID compliant product, for intrinsic RFID enablement of many processes within the supply chain, and 2) the RFIDware add-on module, for achieving outbound RFID tag application only.
: and physical markup language (PML) services (which will be described in more detail later in this article). A product demo was held at D/C Expo to illustrate the concept. Provia showed how, with ViaView, a supplier company will know the turn time of products at every step and can be notified if something out of the ordinary happens throughout the supply chain. Provia believes that suppliers to Wal-Mart and others leveraging RFID will now have a better idea of how long their products spend at each stage of
Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold MannerPart 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 existing logistics transactional software solution and process flows. This should put the suppliers back into control of prioritizing their IT projects because they could supposedly thereby be fairly easily and quickly made compliant with Wal-Mart or the DoD requirements for RFID. The next step for them would then be to look at how they can reap the benefits of RFID internally within their own operations.
: updates to Wal-Mart s corporate PML servers for transactions like product receipts, inventory updates or shipment confirmations. Therefore, RFID tags could help companies better track and control inventory—from warehouses, to loading docks, to trucks and finally when the customer receives the product. As a result of these efficiencies they may eventually promote, RFID tags may one day replace bar codes. The product s touted advantage is that it makes use of existing WMS features (e.g., end-to-end serial
