Where, when and how your company can benefit from RFID
Insights into the potential ROI of each application

How To Deploy:
A Method for Evaluating RFID's Potential

  Sebastian Resch, Project Manager RFID, MTU Aero Engines
Takeaways :
A proven method for evaluating RFID applications

Spirit AeroSystems, a 76-year-old former division of Boeing, uses RFID internally to tag parts, track work in process, and automated decision-making (informing workers which process to perform as parts are scanned). Its next goal is to find ways to integrate RFID with its suppliers and vendors to achieve benefits for all.

Best practices for reducing manufacturing defects with RFID
Strategies for linking Six Sigma and RFID projects

Health Care/Pharmaceutical:
The Benefits of Standardized EPC Data Formats

RFID Standards for Freight Transportation in North
     America—Peeling Back the Confusion

There is a clear mismatch between developing ISO RFID standards for international intermodal freight applications and North America's de facto RFID standards related to highway freight transportation. Current and developing North American approaches to Dedicated Short Range Communications differ in important ways from ISO approaches to RFID for containers in international trade. Our panel outlines the main approaches and opens a dialog on the implications and on ways to move forward.
