  • Archimedes Method and System for Tracking
    Published February 2010
    Archimedes IP Corp. outlines its system for recording location information onto a tag, so that an item's movement history can be accessed without requiring communication with a central database. This system would allow the tracking of location histories for seaborn containers, thereby providing customs officials at the final destination with location information regarding a container's entire journey after it was sealed at the origination point.
  • Leveraging ERP for Supply Chain Execution
    Published January 2010
    Companies considering supply chain execution systems to integrate shop-floor RF scanners and bar-coding within their enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems face a fundamental decision: Which data model will serve as the primary system of record for manufacturing and distribution transactions? In this white paper, TAKE Supply Chain outlines the impact the choice of system architecture has on critical aspects of running a supply chain and maximizing an ERP investment. (7 pages)
  • Tag-on-Demand: The New Face of RFID
    Published January 2010
    William Faulkner, president of Logopak Corp., discusses how the increased complexity of today's auto-ID environment can be addressed by the tag-on-demand model. Faulkner outlines the company's factory-floor printing and labeling system, the Logopak 920 PFR, which can label pallets on one to three sides using self-adhesive labels in large formats with scanner-readable bar codes coupled with clearly written dates and codes. The device was chosen for Metro Group's Future Store initiative, where RFID has reduced out-of-stocks by 9 to 14 percent, assuring a more consistent availability of goods for customers. (4 pages)
  • Meeting the EPC RFID Mandates: Where to Begin
    Published January 2010
    In this white paper, Weber Marking Systems, Inc., explains why, if bar codes and other automatic-identification technologies have helped to improve the efficiencies of data accuracy and real-time information acquisition, RFID is also necessary for optimizing the supply chain. (8 pages)
  • Cross-Docking: Addressing the Technology Gap to Improve Visibility
    Published January 2010
    Cross-docking can help company executives reduce inventory costs and trim delivery times. Traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) technology, however, does not offer the visibility and accountability to optimize cross-docking efficiency. TAKE Supply Chain's Jason Howton discusses the technology requirements of a next-generation cross-docking solution. (6 pages)
  • Driving Costs Out and Efficiency In With Enterprise Bar-Code and RFID Label Management
    Published January 2010
    TAKE Supply Chain discusses a scalable, rules-based bar-code label and RFID print-management platform that enables business users to effectively administer tagging output and compliance programs. By alleviating an IT staff of this burden, label compliance can be achieved at a lower cost and higher quality, thereby allowing an organization to be proactive in its use of auto-ID technology throughout the supply chain.
