Transcript

  • 1. A Joint Proposal by Logistics and SR&W RFID: Revolutionizing petPRO’s Supply Chain
  • 2. What is RFID?
    • A data collection technology
    • Allows data to be transferred from data-storing memory chips (tags) to data-gathering readers
    • Transmitted data can provide a multitude of information about the product
    • Commonly used to track assets
  • 3. How is RFID Used?
    • An RFID tag attached to a product can be read/interrogated by a reader about its data (product information)
    • RFID readers can be stationary or mobile
    • RFID tags can be passive or active
  • 4. petPRO Applications
    • Would revolutionize our supply chain by providing a with a multitude of product information:
    • - Product components
    • - Product history
    • - Product location
    • - Product usage
  • 5. Tracking Products at Every Stage of the Supply Chain
  • 6.
    • Our primary responsibility is to monitor and control the flow of goods
    • With RFID, we would know exactly when each product is at each stage of the supply chain
    • This would allow us to know whether or not our product flow schedules and timelines being followed
    • RFID as a tool to evaluate Logistics’ standards and the efficiency of the supply chain
    RFID and Logistics
  • 7. Logistics and the Supply Chain Logistics controls the flow of goods through the supply chain, from the point of origin to the point of consumption.
  • 8. Software #1: Symbol Technologies Inc.’s RFID Solutions
    • Worldwide leader in enterprise mobility, the first organization to implement working RFID solutions
    • Offers a set of RFID solutions
  • 9. Software #1: (con’t) Symbol Technologies Inc.’s RFID Solutions
    • XR400 Fixed Reader
      • Gen 2 certified for capacity and security
      • Enterprise connectivity for existing infrastructure
      • Reliable readability despite interference potential
      • Read, update, and transfer data
      • Most reliable on the market
    • MC9000-G Handheld Reader
      • Collects/distributes data at critical points
      • Cost-effective, reliable, long-life
      • Pinpoints inventory location
  • 10. Software #1: (con’t) Symbol Technologies Inc.’s RFID Solutions
    • Symbol Tags
      • Different varieties for different needs
      • Unique inlay antennas for optimum sensitivity
      • Applied to cases, pallets, or products
    • DC400 Portal System
      • Tracks all assets passing through primary read zones
      • Includes components to create read zone
      • “ Plug and Play” installation
  • 11. Software #1: (con’t) Symbol Technologies Inc.’s RFID Solutions
    • Comments
    • Products undoubtedly facilitate tracking products
    • Products to be used with existing information systems = potential difficulty
    • Is more of a product line than a networked solution
  • 12. RFID and SR&W
    • Our primary responsibility is to monitor the physical aspects of controlling the flow of goods
    • Supply Chain Management: tracking inventory levels, communicating with supplies in transit to petPro headquarters, tracking shipments on the way to customers, forecast delays in shipments
    • RFID will allow us to know whether or not our asset levels are up to par, also maintain the standards logistics has set out for product flow schedules and timelines
  • 13. Software #2: (con’t) Sun’s Java Enterprise System
  • 14. Software #2: (con’t) Sun’s Java Enterprise System
    • After the reader interrogates the items it sends that data into the next architecture in the system, the Java System RFID Software for processing.
    • The Event Manager is designed to process streams of tag or sensor data coming from the reader.
    • Has the capability to filter and aggregate data prior to sending it to a requesting application.
  • 15. Software #2: Sun’s Java Enterprise System
    • The other major component is the Java System RFID Information Server.
    • Sun advocates that integration technologies be used to connect the RFID Event Manager layer to enterprise information systems (EIS).
  • 16. Software #2: (con’t) Sun’s Java Enterprise System
    • Comments
    • Sun’s Java Enterprise System is easily integrated with petPRO’s existing systems such as SAP, SCM, WHM
    • The software has highly sophisticate components that can perform intelligent tasks such as filtering, processing, and manipulating data.
  • 17. Recommendation
  • 18. Recommendation
  • 19. Recommendation
    • We recommend that Sun’s Java Enterprise System be implemented in petPRO in order to give the company the competitive edge it needs to dominate the pet food industry.
    • Thanks For Your Time!
