DEFINITION Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) exists as a distinct subset of the larger family of automated identification technologies that includes things like bar codes, visual scanning devices and biometric readers. RFID is a means of automated identification that features electronic tags used both to store data and to act as transponders for sending(More)
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a technology that has been in use since the 1940’s; however, practical business applications are more recently being developed. Dell Computers looked at their Xiamen, China manufacturing facility to see if RFID technology could result in improved efficiencies with quick payoff. The resulting scorecard showed areas(More)
This paper challenges the notion that speed of query execution, which dominates the OLTP database benchmarking landscape, is the appropriate critical metric for benchmarking data warehouses. The heart of the work is the introduction of a new fitness benchmark for testing and rating a warehouse’s ability to provide decision support rather than testing its(More)
Benchmarking of relational databases is the established practice of defining and applying consistent performance-based standards of measurement[1] to a broad range of (typically transactional) database management systems. Well-known measures such as the TPC Benchmark[2] have become defacto industry standards for the comparative evaluation of on line(More)
RFID represents a significant improvement over other automated identification technologies (such as bar coding) in that RFID readers do not require line of sight to tags nor do RFID systems require human assistance when functioning properly. These and other attributes make RFID an excellent candidate for convergence with a variety of networking(More)
