Demystifying the EPC Global Network: An explanation of ONS, EPC-IS, and EPC-DS
As goods traverse the supply chain, various parties need to exchange information about these goods. This requires interoperability across the global network

RFID--A New Technology Set to Explode? Part One: RFID Technology


For retailers and the other vertical industries, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags present enormous opportunities to improve supply chain operations, since real-time inventory control, tracking, and alerting capabilities could be very important advantages of RFID. As tagged inventory goes through ports, terminals, freight forwarders, and into a distribution center, the RFID tag should provide near real-time visibility of an item's whereabouts at all times.

For example, EPC tags affixed to packaging could provide manufacturers, distributors, and retailers with the following benefits: Product authenticity—allow distributors and retailers to confirm, with pinpoint accuracy, whether or not the goods on their shelves are authentic. Users will have instant access to information indicating precisely when, where, and by whom a product was made. Product availability—manufacturers will have true produce-to-demand capability and will be able to Read More

Leveraging Technology to Maintain a Competitive Edge During Tough Economic Times--A Panel Discussion Analyzed Part Four: RFID Software Issues


Logically, radio frequency identification (RFID) deployment will be a far cry from a minor development project that can be completed in a few months or weeks. It will take months and years to assess how RFID will affect manufacturing and shipping operations and IT systems. It will take time to bring software up to a pilot stage, and after that, years of fine-tuning and IT system development will be needed to fully realize the gains in operational efficiency that the technology promises.

An Approach to HIPAA 5010 conversion


In 1996, Congress passed HIPAA to establish national standards for health care transactions. The main focus is to address patient privacy rights, health insurance portability, and the administration simplification of health care payers. Health care electronic data interchange (EDI) transactions such as eligibility, claim status, referrals, claims, remittances, member enrollment and maintenance, and premium payments are all impacted by the regulation. This paper discusses HIPAA drivers, compliance schedule, changes, impacts on various stakeholders, benefits of adoption, and approaches to successful completion of this conversion.
