RFID in Manufacturing 2015
July 15, 2015 11AM - 1PM
Manufacturing companies across many industries are employing RFID to achieve major benefits, both in their supply chains and in their factory operations. Hear how leading manufacturing firms are using RFID to achieve benefits today.
RFID in Manufacturing 2015
Welcome and Introduction
Utilizing IoT technologies to Improve Workflow
Manufacturers around the globe are currently using RFID to improve production flow, optimize their supply chain, manage assets and increase inventory accuracy. By tagging assets and returnable transport items, companies have been able to obtain the visibility they need into their processes, in order to track production flow in real time and thereby identify bottlenecks so they can improve cycle times. Learn more about the next generation in RFID for manufacturing, including how new technologies facilitated by the Internet of Things can be used not only to track items and count inventories, but also to provide enhanced visibility and real-time process control. Join us to see how RFID- and IoT-based visual tagging systems (e-paper) have been deployed at several manufacturing facilities to not only gain efficiencies, but also reduce costs by eliminating paper-based instructions and tags in their processes.
Choosing the Right RFID Technology for Manufacturing
RFID technology can be leveraged across the full product lifecycle—development, production and in-market. Manufacturers implement RFID into production lines to optimize workflows or embed RFID technology into finished goods for brand protection, performance and maintenance. Each approach can be combined for maximum value, based on business requirements. Choosing the right RFID system for each application requires a clearly thought-out strategy, and taking into consideration the various physical and logistical aspects. This session will give examples of both types of applications, and will outline the right steps in choosing the proper technology for today—and for tomorrow.
RFID Speeds Vehicles Through Assembly
Troy Design & Manufacture (TDM), a subsidiary of Ford Motor Co., is using an RFID-based solution to reduce the amount of labor time employees spend manually tracking work-in-progress (WIP) on paper. Three years after installing the system at the new plant—which converts various vehicles from Ford Motor Co. into Police Interceptor models—TDM found that the solution saves five to seven seconds from each workstation process compared with the amount of time required to perform bar-code scans, as well as enabling personnel to focus on the value-based work at hand. As a result, the firm has managed to outperform its expected production rates. Hear how RFID is being used to improve WIP data accuracy, reduce labor times and increase production output rates.
RFID in Manufacturing 2015: Additive Manufacturing, Composites, Accountability and the IoT
Industrial manufacturing processes continue to evolve to reflect new programs, materials, processes and technologies. This creates both new opportunities and challenges for manufacturers, as they integrate RFID, real-time location system and Internet of Things technologies into their operations and into their own products. This session will present real-world examples of how RFID, RTLS and the IoT are being deployed in manufacturing environments. Project design, enterprise systems integration and implementation options will be discussed.

RFID for Warehouse and Inventory Management 2017
In this virtual event, learn how to benefit from deploying radio frequency identification within your warehouse by managing your inventory and coordinating your supply chain. Hear real-world case studies explaining the tangible business benefits of how RFID can help your organization improve visibility regarding product movements and related transactions, as well as increase efficiencies, lower labor costs, optimize inventory levels, track assets and differentiate your logistic service, in order to gain a competitive advantage.
RFID in the Food Industry 2017
This virtual event is designed to educate growers, distributors and producers of food and food products, as well as systems integrators and other implementers, regarding the benefits of using RFID to track the location of food and monitor its temperature as it moves through the supply chain. The seminar will explain the current state of RFID, and reveal how your organization can deploy the technology to achieve such benefits today.
RFID in Retail and Apparel Virtual Event 2017
Retail and apparel companies have been among the early adopters of RFID technologies, both internally and within their shared supply chains. Today RFID's value has evolved far beyond inventory visibility to building the foundation for responsive retailing. During this virtual event, hear how retailers worldwide are using RFID and Internet of Things technologies to become more agile and responsive in an increasingly competitive market.
Internet of Things 2017
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a broad term being used to cover technologies that give network connectivity to everyday objects, from wearable computers to common products. What's behind all the excitement about the Internet of Things? How will companies benefit from IoT technologies? What will be the impact on consumers? What strategies should companies use to take advantage of IoT technologies, and which technologies will dominate the IoT? This virtual event will feature case studies from early adopters. Learn from industry experts, market leaders and analysts who will share their insights about overcoming technical, user and governmental challenges, and how to create effective business models using the power of the Internet of Things.
