RFID Journal Virtual Event

RFID in Manufacturing 2017
Manufacturing companies across many industries are employing RFID to achieve major benefits, both in their supply chains and in their factory operations. In this virtual event, hear how leading manufacturing firms are using RFID to achieve benefits today.
Manufacturing
11:00 AM
Welcome and Introduction
Speaker: Mark Roberti, Founder and Editor, RFID Journal
11:05 AM
Tag, Track, Trust: Quickly Locate and Optimize Equipment and Improve Manufacturing Processes With Actionable Data Using Cloud-Based Identification Technologies
There are several elements critical to the success of manufacturing organizations: quickly identifying and locating assets, improving visibility on operational workflows and processes, and improving equipment capacity and efficiency. Learn how implementing trusted identification solutions using RFID and BLE transponders can significantly reduce the time and costs required to track and trace goods across the manufacturing ecosystem with end-to-end systems. Applications to be discussed will include embedded RFID for consumable lifecycle management, inventory and supply chain, real-time location system (RTLS) technologies, and monitoring equipment condition and health. Additionally, receive insights into cloud-management tools to collect actionable data holistically, enabling data-driven business decisions across the manufacturing floor.
Speaker: Marie Glotz-Bartley, Vice President of Sales Worldwide, Identification Technologies, HID Global
11:40 AM
Utilizing IoT Technologies to Improve Workflow
Manufacturers around the globe are currently using RFID to improve material flow management, manage assets and increase inventory accuracy. By tagging assets, work-in-process materials and returnable transport items, companies are able to obtain the process visibility they need to track production flow in real time and thereby identify bottlenecks to improve counts and cycle times. The next generation of RFID for manufacturing includes new technologies facilitated by the Internet of Things that 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 high-memory, embedded and high-temperature RFID products and IoT-based visual tagging systems (e-paper) have been deployed at several manufacturing facilities. Gaining efficiencies, reducing costs and eliminating paper are just some of the benefits that will be discussed.
Speaker: Ed Nabrotzky, Chief Solutions Officer, Omni-ID
12:05 PM
RFID Reduces Inventory Time and Improves Visibility for Tile Maker
Maruhachi Ceramics of America (MCA) is employing a radio frequency identification solution to track the locations of 50,000 pallets loaded with products, and has thereby reduced the amount of time needed to take inventory of its clay roofing tiles by 98 percent. The system also ensures that personnel know where a specific product is located when they need to load it onto a truck. Learn how the firm has expanded the deployment to include supplies and tools, to better ensure that components and materials required for manufacturing can be found when needed.
Speaker: Linda Hanson, CFO, Maruhachi Ceramics of America (MCA)
12:35 PM
Utilizing Field Logic Controllers and RFID in Low-Cost Standalone Applications
The combination of radio frequency identification and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-enabled field logic controllers (FLCs), with digital and analog input-output capability, can be implemented in a multitude of simplistic standalone applications across the spectrum of industrial automation. The benefits to users are numerous, but most notable is the ability to integrate a portion of RFID control into a production process without the expense or complexity of an industrial PLC.
Speaker: Don Eichman, Product Manager, Fieldbus Technology Division, TURCK
12:55 PM
Connecting People, Processes and Data With Enterprise Sensor Integration Technology
With increasing volumes of data in today's digital landscape, manufacturers face the enormous challenge of effectively tracking and managing their assets and workflow processes with a multitude of disparate sensor technologies. Tapestry Solutions, a Boeing company, has addressed these challenges with its innovative Enterprise Sensor Integration (ESI) middleware solution that provides standardization across the entire enterprise. Learn how ESI seamlessly connects people, processes and data sources—including GPS, RFID, Wi-Fi and ultra-wideband—onto a single platform to improve asset visibility, workflow processes and productivity in order to substantially reduce operating costs. Learn how Tapestry implemented this technology across 50 Boeing plants, saving its parent company more than $100 million during its first year alone. Find out how this hardware-agnostic, open-source software can help you grow your bottom line and serve as your trusted platform for the Internet of Things.
Speaker: Thomas McBride, Senior Director, Business Development, Tapestry Solutions
