Manufacturing

Manufacturing companies across many industries are using RFID to achieve major benefits, both in their supply chains and in their factory operations. This can be done cost-effectively by tracking reusable containers, work-in-process and finished inventory. This track will focus on how leading manufacturing companies are using RFID to achieve benefits today.





What You Will Learn From This Track:

• Benefits of utilizing an RFID-enabled WIP monitoring process in a manufacturing environment
• Understanding how UHF passive RFID systems can improve logistics and tracking
• Reducing inventory inaccuracies caused by late advance shipping notices and human error
• How the RFID solution decreased processing times, allowing Continental to focus efforts on tracking 80,000 reusable containers, which have a combined value of $3 million
• The value of using radio frequency identification for oil-field asset management and servicing 
• How to implement RFID on oil rigs, at refineries and in remote pipes
• How the use of RFID can dramatically improve the realism and relevance of training exercises
• How to use radio frequency identification to protect employees in hazardous situations
• How Schneider Electric plans to use RFID to gain a competitive advantage
• Insights into how this solution utilizes commonly available tags and readers
• How RFID can be utilized effectively by a manufacturing firm beyond just shipping cases to a customer
• K-C's 2009 technology expansion plans for radio frequency identification

Kimberly-Clark Uses RFID to Improve Shipping Accuracy at Manufacturing Plants
Kimberly-Clark, a recognized leader in the usage of RFID, has just concluded a pilot program at one of its non-woven plants. The facility produces material used in the manufacture of Huggies-brand diapers. K-C employed passive RFID tags to track the finished materials as they came off the machine and were shipped to the company’s manufacturing plants. The pilot showed a decrease in shipping errors, as well as a reduction in loading times.
Speaker:
Matthew Hudgins, Operations Consultant, Kimberly-Clark
Takeaways:
• How RFID can be utilized effectively by a manufacturing firm beyond just shipping cases to a customer
• K-C's 2009 technology expansion plans for radio frequency identification

The Benefits of Tracking Incoming Inventory With RFID
Continental Automotive Systems US, a global auto components maker, receives 5,000 different types of parts at its factory. The company employs RFID to track containers holding the parts as they move from one of three third-party logistics providers’ facilities to its own 800,000-square-foot manufacturing plant, where parts are received, put away and later assembled into power-train equipment, infotainment systems, and car body controllers. Learn how RFID has reduced receiving processing times, shrinkage and container stockpiling.
Speaker:
Gokhan Sarpkaya, Ph.D., Project Leader, Logistics, Continental Automotive Systems US, Inc.
