Supply Chain/Logistics

Leading-edge companies are improving their supply chains and logistics operations, including warehouse management, by taking advantage of the greater visibility that RFID data provides. In this track, you will hear from some of the companies that have successfully deployed these systems, and learn their best practices.





What You Will Learn From This Track:

• How orders are fulfilled by adding a unique RFID tag to each item and sending it through a tunnel in the distribution center, which then issues a delta report of item usage so billing is initiated by running each inbound kit through a different tunnel
• How the company reduced labor costs from a per-kit average of 10-30 minutes to less than 1 minute
• How existing implementations have demonstrated the value of automatic identification technology in the defense supply chain 
• How the DLA's next phase of implementation will include expanding previous initiatives, as well as enabling new capabilities
• RTLS generated a strong return on investment (ROI) by reducing staff time searching for equipment
• How to use RFID to lower equipment inventory requirements, minimizing equipment theft and loss
• Why Kimberly-Clark chose a passive tag system for its solution
• How to lower the total cost of ownership of an RFID system
• The benefits of allowing supply chain partners to trace an item's chain of custody
• How to utilize RFID to identify problem areas, and to discover ways to ensure products are stored and transported under optimal conditions
• Why Electronic Product Code (EPC) tags were read only by fixed interrogators
• How the test results will be used to drive the development of standards for conveyance asset tags and passive e-seals

Kimberly-Clark Reduces Yard-Management Costs
After its successful pilot deployment, Kimberly-Clark has moved beyond the evaluation phase and is now employing a passive UHF EPC RFID system for yard management. This session will explain how the company has utilized its existing EPC RFID infrastructure to integrate the RFID EPC solution into its current software platforms, and how it has combined radio frequency identification with data from other technologies. Learn how this system is delivering cost savings and greater efficiencies to Kimberly-Clark.
Speaker:
Scott Buss, Research Manager, Kimberly-Clark
Takeaways:
• Why Kimberly-Clark chose a passive tag system for its solution
• How to lower the total cost of ownership of an RFID system

How RFID Delivers Shipping Accuracy and Cost Savings
DePuy, a division of Johnson & Johnson, receives more than half of its ExpressKit orders to be shipped out on the same day they arrive. Employees had to bar-code-scan each component in each kit twice—sometimes more than 100 per kit—then repack them before shipping. Learn how the company implemented an RFID system that dramatically improved shipping accuracy, shortened the kits’ typical check-in and -out times and made it possible to more accurately bill surgeons for the items they actually use.
Speaker:
Dave Johnson, Director of Distribution & Logistics (RET), DePuy, a division of Johnson & Johnson
Takeaways:
• How orders are fulfilled by adding a unique RFID tag to each item and sending it through a tunnel in the distribution center, which then issues a delta report of item usage so billing is initiated by running each inbound kit through a different tunnel
• How the company reduced labor costs from a per-kit average of 10-30 minutes to less than 1 minute
3:50 pm—Breakout Session
How UCSD Medical Center Achieved an ROI With an Active RFID Real-Time Location System
The University of California San Diego Medical Center lowered its rental costs for mobile medical equipment and improved its overall equipment and maintenance processes by implementing a real-time location system. Learn what the center’s original asset management goals were and how it solved a broad range of process and workflow issues with the technology, including how it managed equipment used in its Incident Command Center during the recent San Diego fire.
Speaker:
Scott Sullivan, Business Manager, University of California, San Diego Medical Center
Takeaways:
• RTLS generated a strong return on investment (ROI) by reducing staff time searching for equipment
• How to use RFID to lower equipment inventory requirements, minimizing equipment theft and loss

Monitoring and Authenticating High-Value Goods
eProvenance, a startup company, recently introduced a service that tracks, authenticates and monitors bottles of wine through the combined use of semi-active and passive RFID tags, as well as specialized ink. This unique method utilizes a temperature-tracking tag placed within each case of wine. In this session, hear how passive tags can be employed to identify and authenticate items, and to link them to particular temperature-tracking tags, as well as to the shippers, distributors or brokers handling them.
Speaker:
Liz Churchill, Vice President of Solutions, eProvenance
Takeaways:
• The benefits of allowing supply chain partners to trace an item's chain of custody
• How to utilize RFID to identify problem areas, and to discover ways to ensure products are stored and transported under optimal conditions

The Next Phase of AIT-enabled Distribution at the DLA
By leveraging the supply relationships of its suppliers and customers, using new and exciting technologies, and integrating RFID into more of its logistics footprint and processes, the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) will soon provide improved visibility beyond just receiving. In this session, learn how this capability will deliver improved availability, trust, responsiveness, speed and efficiency within the defense supply chain to support the war effort.
Speaker:
Mark Lieberman, AIT Program Manager, U.S. Defense Logistics Agency
Takeaways:
• How existing implementations have demonstrated the value of automatic identification technology in the defense supply chain

Setting Standards for RFID in the Worldwide Supply Chain
Last December, EPCglobal and several end-user companies began testing the use of the EPC Information Service to track products in cartons, containers and pallets from Tokyo to Amsterdam. In this session, learn how supply chain partners tracked shipments from a third-party logistics provider in Japan to a distribution warehouse in the Netherlands, and how they used EPCIS to store, access and share real-time event data regarding objects moving throughout different points in the supply chain.
Speaker:
Naotaka Ishizawa, Project Manager of the Technical Strategy Group of MTI, NYK Line
Takeaways:
• Why Electronic Product Code (EPC) tags were read only by fixed interrogators
