TNT Logistics to deliver enhanced RFID soln

By : |November 2, 2005 0



BANGALORE:
TIBCO Software, a leading business integration and process management software
company that enables real-time business, today announced that it will provide
TNT Logistics with complex event processing (CEP) and real-time visibility
software for its RFID initiative. This will help prevent interruptions and
manual interventions in the automotive supply chain for increased efficiency and
delivery of what is referred to as "perfect orders."

The
enhanced execution of an automotive supply chain facilitates just-in-time
delivery of parts to a manufacturing site in correct sequence. Interruptions in
an assembly process can translate into workflow delays, which equates to lost
time and money. Consequently, businesses including TNT continually strive to
synchronize the assembly process for an uninterrupted flow of parts from
material sequencing centers to line side at the manufacturing plants.

"TIBCO
has enabled us to take the requirements, concepts and ideas behind RFID and
quickly integrate that information with the existing supply chain execution data
stream, greatly enhancing our ability to track product throughout the supply
chain," said Terry McIntyre, RFID project leader for TNT Logistics North
America.

 "TIBCO was the best choice for TNT Logistics. The foundation of the
RFID infrastructure is built for easy integration with TIBCO’s software, making
it a viable solution for us to expand globally."

TIBCO’s
next-generation RFID software solution is able to identify and respond to
correlated granular business events occurring at diverse layers within an
organization and across the value chain. The solution has the capacity to handle
literally millions of “micro events” and uses highly scalable business rules
to suggest real-time corrections for supply chain optimization. This helps to
provide end users with real-time insight and context around events and the
resulting impact on businesses.

"Customers
want to be assured that products will arrive in the exact order and time they
specified,” said Ram Menon, senior vice president, Worldwide Marketing, TIBCO.
“Today’s latest active RFID technology can help to ensure that businesses
like TNT deliver on their promise of ‘perfect orders’ by simplifying and
improving operational efficiency. TIBCO’s next-generation RFID solutions
provide companies with the real-time data needed for successfully managing those
business events that have a direct impact on the supply chain."

TIBCO’s
easy-to-deploy RFID software also helps automate workflow, reduce inventory and
prevent business interruption in the assembly process.
