TET Presentation

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