How To Deploy Track Sessions

Tuesday, May 2
11:15 am  A Method for Evaluating RFID's Potential
Germany's MTU Aero Engines, one of the largest aircraft engine manufacturers in the world, developed a process- and knowledge-based analytical model. The company has used this model to identify potential RFID applications throughout its supply chain and determine the best one to implement this year.
  Sebastian Resch, Project Manager RFID, MTU Aero Engines
A proven method for evaluating RFID applications
Knowledge of how one company evaluated potential apps
12:05 pm  Real-World RFID
Addressing market needs for the next phase of RFID implementation.
  Stan Drobac, Vice President of RFID Applications, Avery Dennison
Benchmarks for evaluating Gen 2 tag performance on your products
2:45 pm  Performance of EPC Gen 2 in the Real World
There has been a lot of discussion about the benefits of Gen 2. This session reveals research performed by the RFID Alliance Labs in both controlled and real-world environments. Tags were tested in free air and near metal and water.
  Daniel Deavours, Research Director, RFID Alliance Lab
Benchmarks for evaluating Gen 2 tag performance on your products
3:35 pm  RFID Deployments—Architecture and Infrastructure Considerations
RFID is about enabling enterprises get information about their
business processes and operations in real time, to make the right   decisions at the right time. To enable this real-time enterprise vision, it is essential to make the right infrastructure choices right now, as enterprises grow their initial pilots and proof-of-concept projects to enterprise-wide, and supply chain-wide deployments. This session will highlight some of these choices and best practices around RFID infrastructure and enterprise IT infrastructure.

11:45 am  From Promise to Practice—Business Processes Transformation
     Enabled by RFID

While the majority of the initial RFID deployments focused on compliance oriented applications, leading companies are already looking beyond mandates and generating value by making their core business processes "real world aware." Examples range from establishing electronic proof-of-delivery based on RFID read data in consumer products and retail, to establishing an authenticated product and electronic pedigree in pharmaceutical and food industries, etc. This presentation will describe the details of some of these solutions, share experiences from real life deployments and describe the requirements of the right technology platform to address short and long term needs.
  Andres Botero, Director, Global RFID Program Management, SAP
