Achieving state-of-the-art excellence and attaining the cost reductions associated with outstanding logistics efforts is an obvious gain in terms of competitive edge and profitability. As logistics tools evolve in comprehensiveness and complexity, and the use of these new tools becomes more pervasive, maintaining a position of leadership in logistics functions also becomes increasingly difficult. And in spite of its importance not only to the bottom line but also to the functionality of your operations, logistics improvement often lags industry requirements....
Logistics activities are critical integrating functions in any type of business. Annual expenditures on logistics in the United States alone are equivalent to approximately 10% of the U.S. gross domestic product. Logistics expenditures represent an even larger percentage of the world economy. Thus, achieving state-of-the-art excellence in logistics functions, and attaining the inherent cost reductions associated with outstanding logistics efforts, is very important in terms of competitiveness and profitability.
Radio Frequency Identifi cation (RFID) is a modern wireless data transmission and reception
technique for applications including automatic identifi cation, asset tracking
and security surveillance. As barcodes and other means of identifi cation and asset
tracking are inadequate for recent demands, RFID technology has att racted interest for
applications such as logistics, supply chain management, asset tracking, and security
Key motivations of data exploration include
Helping to select the right tool for preprocessing or analysis
Making use of humans’ abilities to recognize patterns
People can recognize patterns not captured by data analysis tools
Related to the area of Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA)
