Microsoft Business Solution and Danish snack manufacturer Kims are collaborating on testing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology

Microsoft Business Solutions and Danish snack manufacturer Kims are collaborating on a supply chain management (SCM) pilot project. The aim of the project is to enable companies to improve automation and effectiveness of storage and distribution management. Part of the project involves testing the integration of the latest Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology with Axapta from Microsoft Business Solution.

 

RFID tags are tiny radio transmitters placed on products, and contain information which can be read when products pass an RFID reader. The objective is to enable Axapta based systems to monitor products throughout the distribution chain. According to MD of Kims, Jørn Tolstrup Rohde, the RFID technology is currently too expensive for use at the present time, but he expects prices to drop in the future. The news is reported by national daily newpaper Jyllands-Posten online.
