Inside The High-Definition Enterprise Methodology
High definition translates into problem-free RFID deployments. The phases are sequenced, with outputs from one phase depending on required inputs for the next phase.
We start with an evaluation. We examine and evaluate the environment. With a client—suppliers and retailers—we identify and confirm overall goals, expectations and requirements for RFID, mobile RFID, source tagging and more. Requirements are often vast and varied, and drive what clients need from tags and printers, to readers and other devices.
2. Solution Design and Planning
Phase 2 defines and validates project objectives and success criteria. We form project requirements, deepen our knowledge of the organization and then choose the best path to create an RFID strategy and solution.
- Design specifications are developed
- Definitive elements are mapped: technical and logical topology, swim lane diagrams of the process workflows, and required integrations and data sources
- A comprehensive design and project plan are created.
- Project milestones resources and responsibilities are identified, clarified and communicated.
3. Development and Testing
Phase 3 configures the RFID solution and builds the architecture. With confirmed project requirements, a design specification is developed. This includes the physical, logical and security design for the proposed architecture, plus its integration and monitoring requirements.
Phase 4 activates the implementation. Hardware and RFID technology are installed, as are the platform and Clarity software.
5. Management and Support
The final phase reviews new technical, business and functional requirements that may affect required system changes, ongoing hardware and software updates and day-to-day Service Level Agreement-driven support.
Once deployed, Xterprise offers ongoing support and consultation. This is critical for system optimization and alignment.
