  1. 1. Benefits of Web- Based Applications and RFID Project
  2. 2. Benefits of Web-Based System • Uses Current Technology • Enables New Technology • Enables Regionalization • Simplifies Upgrades • Simplifies Linkage to Other Systems • Provides Powerful Tools
  3. 3. Current Technology • Few Development Efforts for Non-Web • New Tools Being Developed • Security Clarifications Emerging • Skilled Work Force Available
  4. 4. New Technology • New Technologies Being Developed • Wireless • Sensor Reading (RFID) • Handheld / Tablet PC • Hands Free • GPS / GIS
  5. 5. Regionalization • One Server / Multiple Sites • Support Cost Savings • Better Hardware/Support • Redundancy Capabilities • Aggregation Reporting Capabilities
  6. 6. Upgrades • Upgrade a Single Server (no clients) • Support Savings Cost • Dynamic Display
  7. 7. Linkages to Other Systems • XML Communication • Real Time Interfaces • Existing File Structures Can Still Work • SAP / Oracle Bus. Suite Certifications • External Data Sources
  8. 8. Powerful Tools • Search Tools • Web Links • Attaching PDF Documents • Handheld / Cell Phone • Email Communication • Dynamic Display • Discoverer
  9. 9. Summary • Cost Savings to the Sites • Better Technology • More Possibilities • More Flexibility • Available Now (SSAA Approved)
  10. 10. RFID History and Context Sensor-Based Technology • Dates to WW II to Identify Ships & Planes • Already in Use for 400,000 DoD Items • Price from $60 to $.25 per Tag – Headed to $.05 • Typical Warehouse Implementation $400K • DoD Mandates All Pallets and Cases by 2005
  11. 11. The RFID Imperative The adoption of RFID technology is inevitable. Its transformational promise, huge. But the success of RFID in your business depends on your infrastructure. CIO Magazine - Dec 2003
  12. 12. Demands • RFID at the pallet and case level will have to be linked to warehouse management systems. RFID at the item level will touch virtually every system in the organization.
  13. 13. Why RFID is Important to DoD • A rapidly moving force needs dynamic battlefields. Important to know: – What we have. – Where it is. – And what is being used.
  14. 14. RFID Technical Obstacles • Radio Waves Absorbed by Liquids and Distorted by Metal • Require Large Bandwidth and Data Warehousing • For ROI Must Have Strong Data Plan • Transition from Barcode to 13 Digit EPCs • Create More Intelligence at the Edges of the Network
  15. 15. The New Problem “Mountains of Data” “Oceans of Information” “Rivers of Numbers”
  16. 16. The RFID System
  17. 17. Trend: Real-Time Enterprise Data Processing Internet Real Time (Still Happening) • Weeks • Days • Minutes • Batch • Request/Reply • Automated • Megabytes • Terabytes • Exabytes • Punch Cards • Human • Event Driven • Few People • Many People • Beyond People
  18. 18. Information Quality Challenge • Manage large volumes of data and events in the most scalable, reliable, proven database. • Provide the highest level of security for your data, while making it available to appropriate trading partners and customers. • Integrate with your existing information, business processes, applications and data capture technologies. • Easily add new information, business processes, applications and data capture technologies. • Maximize quality of service with a common management framework through proactive monitoring and automated administration out to the edge.
  19. 19. Real-Time Enterprise Challenges Analyze Manage Access Collect Respond
  20. 20. Oracle Sensor-Based Services ACCESS Information Access/ Visibility Unified Workspace Business Real-Time Collaboration Alerts Intelligence Portal Responsive Enterprise ANALYZE RESPOND Business Processes E-Business Suite Embedded Analytics Business Process Event-Based Architecture Applications Monitoring CAPTURE MANAGE Grid Infrastructure Event Storage and Distribution Event Sources Edge Server Database Application Server Sensors, RFID, Data Collection, Scalable Data Archive, Security, Integration, System Events Cleansing, Dispatch Aggregration, Dissemination Developtiont Tools
  21. 21. Key Issues • The Difference is in the Planning – RFID is only a data delivery technology. • Consider RFID in the Context of Business Processes – What Data can be on the Tag unique to your needs, i.e., How are chemicals different from spare parts? – What processes are unique?
  22. 22. Key Issues • If you are at 99% accuracy and RF gets you to 99.5% -- Worth it? • Consider situation where process discipline critical but difficult to achieve with barcode • What unique physical condition exists that makes RF beneficial? • How much granularity does the process need?
  23. 23. Security Application Account NCBs Aggregate Assess
  24. 24. Account • Chemical Inventory • Pharmacy Model • People and Places • Sensor Based Monitoring
  25. 25. Aggregate • Web Connectivity • Secure Data Transfer • Rapid Bulk Data Collection
  26. 26. Assess • Monitor Key Actions • Small Events Add Up • Create Indicators • “Traffic Light” Model • Real Time Data
  27. 27. Ready, Set, Go. • 46,000 Suppliers in the DoD. This Policy touches all of them. • DoD has spent $100 Million over the last ten years on RFID • Must define the right business logic on top of the base capability RFID provides.
  28. 28. Meeting the Challenge • Know More – Real-time supply chain visibility • Do More – Automated data collection – Business process transformation • Spend Less – Shrinking budgets, increased security – Immediate access to accurate global information – Low integration, implementation, maintenance cost
