Abbott Gains Real-Time Visibility Into Materials Via New RFID-based Inventory-Management Solution

Breakout Session
Abbott, a global health-care company, needs to manage a large inventory of R&D materials that have a turnover similar to that of finished goods. This inventory can be problematic to control, as development materials are produced in smaller volumes and to specific formulations that may not be easily reproduced. Unlike standard inventory that can be reordered if misplaced or expired, R&D materials carry an inherent level of value that is difficult to quantify. Learn how Abbott has employed this RFID-based inventory-management solution to transform operations and reduce overhead, and how other global health-care systems have used it to automate operations.
