RFID Best Practices for Inventory Management
As the economy begins to recover, it is more important than ever to accomplish more with fewer resources. But is it realistically possible to increase customer satisfaction while lowering costs and raising profits? This session will show how leading companies are using RFID to achieve that goal, by providing specific examples of how the technology ties in with inventory-management techniques to enable organizations to redesign their processes and perform more efficiently

Is RFID the Right Choice for Your Business?
Radio frequency identification has the potential to be a revolutionary technology, but how can you use it to gain visibility over your inventory? And which technology would be more appropriate for your specific case? This session will outline a methodology used to discover RFID opportunities that have the potential to improve efficiencies, reduce costs and transform the way you manage and control your warehouse.

How to Build Your Own Inventory-Management RFID Portal
You've probably seen several RFID demos, so instead of demonstrating a working portal, we'll build one right before your eyes, and show how easily you can do it on your end. Our goal will be to help you achieve a working portal within a few days of returning home, so that you can test out some inventory-management scenarios yourself.

Harold Boeck, Ph.D., Professor, Université du Québec à Montréal, and Academic Founder, RFID Academia
Anthony Palermo, Director, Business Development, RFID Academia

Getting Your Project Started and Initiating Your RFID Business Case
This session will present a proven methodology used to discover problems and opportunities that can be addressed with radio frequency identification, a technology that has the potential to improve efficiencies and reduce expenses. Discover how to measure the impact of your supply chain process performance, identify possible pitfalls and determine the success of your RFID initiative, by gaining valuable resources necessary to help you move forward toward adoption.

Harold Boeck, Ph.D., Professor, Université du Québec à Montréal, and Academic Founder, RFID Academia

13:30

Developing an RFID Business Case and Calculating the ROI
Identifying opportunities within your warehouse is an important first step, but justifying which opportunity should be seized first can be a daunting task. Find out how to develop an RFID business case and justify your investment, both qualitatively and quantifiably, by using specific key performance indicators (KPIs). The presentation of supply chain management frameworks will help you understand how to document cases in which inventory moves from a manufacturer through a distributor and down to a retailer.
