  • Module 4 - Background Technology and Logistics/Logistics Design Alternatives\n\nModule 4 - Background\n\nTechnology and Logistics/Logistics Design Alternatives\n\nThe following information will give you a good background on how technology is improving the\n\nefficiency of logistics. Read the articles linked below to assist you with completing the assignments for\n\nthis module. Since technology is changing at such a rapid pace, you should also do additional searches\n\nand find some very recent articles to support your case write-up and SLP paper as they relate to your\n\nspecific arguments.\n\nThis article looks at some of the challenges of trying to read hidden bar codes and what is being done to\n\nimprove this capability:\n\nAlbright, B. (2002). New technology reads 'hidden' bar codes. Frontline Solutions, 3(12), 47-49.\n\nAbstract: New methods of reading bar codes through paint and other materials - developed by\n\nresearchers at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center - could help solve the problems that some\n\ncompanies face when marked items and parts are covered with paint and other coatings. That ability to\n\nread hidden bar codes (and other marks) is particularly critical in industries such as automotive,\n\naerospace and defense, which are initiating direct-part marking programs in order to improve inventory\n\nmanagement and to aid in recalls when defects are discovered. The NASA technology effort, now known\n\nas the Read Through Paint Project, grew out of NASA's efforts to develop a better way to mark and track\n\nparts during the 1980s and 1990s. Researchers came up with five methods of reading hidden codes magneto-optic, ultrasound, infrared imaging, capacitance and radar - but are initially focusing their\n\nefforts on magneto-optic and ultrasound.\n\nHere is an article that discusses wireless technology and how it is being used in logistics:\n\nHarder, P. (2011). A guide to wireless technologies. ASHRAE Journal, 53(2), 44-48. Retrieved on\n\nDecember 9, 2014, from EBSCO – Academic Search Complete.\n\nAbstract: The article offers information on the benefits of using a wireless building automation system\n\n(BAS). It mentions that it minimizes tenant disruption and consumes fewer raw materials. It affirms that\n\nwireless systems are also ideal for niche building applications where hardwiring is physically\n\nchallenging and have built-in signal strength indicators that help during the wireless installation phase.\n\nHere is a good article that gives you an idea of how wireless technology is benefiting the trucking\n\nindustry:\n\nMcCarthy, J. (2002). The wireless road taken. InfoWorld, 24(47), 38-40.\n\nAbstract: Leading IT executives in the trucking and delivery industry are pushing a new wireless strategy\n\nas they equip their drivers and vehicles with a range of devices to refine their delivery management\n\nsystems and drive profits. The affordable costs of implementing wireless systems, from GPS-loaded\n\nsensors to robust information input devices that can integrate with logistics planning back at\n\nheadquarters, has made technology for trucking an area of growth and innovation. IT executives at\n\ncompanies with scores of daily pickup and delivery tasks are implementing new wireless devices that give\n\ntheir drivers much more leeway to make decisions and disseminate information during their schedules. As\n\na result, the companies are seeing significant improvements in the efficiency of their logistics\n\nmanagement systems.\n\nThis article should be particularly helpful for the case assignment:\n\nCross, C. S., (2007). Everything but the kitchen. Industrial Engineer, 39(4), 32-38. Abstract: Bob Howard, VP of operations, US Foodservice distribution center in Topeka, KN, uses\n\nknowledge akin to that of a food scientist to marshal his staff. He retains more information in a day than\n\nmost graduates do of a full college course. For an entire month last year, the US experienced the spinach\n\nscare, instigated by an E. coli outbreak connected to bags of the leafy green vegetable. All of the US\n\nFoodservice's in-house supply was put on hold and segregated, says Howard. Once the in-house supply\n\nwas accounted for and isolated from other produce, Howard's recall team sprang to the task of tracking\n\nall the packaged spinach and ready meals that contained the potentially dangerous portions.
