Tuesday, May 1
    11:30 am—Breakout Sessions
Case Study—Tagging Gas Meters During Production

The Sempra utilities—San Diego Gas & Electric and Southern California Gas—serve California customers from the state's Central Valley to the Mexican border. During the manufacture of gas meters, RFID tags are installed and later read at loading docks, in DC supply and in trucks prior to installation. That has saved the utilitity company money by eliminating meters "lost" during installation which, in turn, can give the customer free gas.
  Terry Mohn, Technology Strategist, Sempra Utilities
. Attaching tags during the manufacturing process
. Using handheld readers in remote locations

  Retail/Consumer Goods:
Item-Level Tagging: What’s in it for the End Customer?
Come see Best Buy’s vision for using RFID in the store to improve customer service. Review the business case for retail on item-level EPC tagging, and gain an understanding where the RFID industry needs to go to fulfill this vision.
  Paul Freeman, RFID Program Manager, Best Buy
. The benefits of EPC and RFID technologies for the consumer
. How RFID can move from the supply chain to the store floor
Case Study—How Boeing Is Using RFID Internally

Boeing wants companies to tag shipments of parts for its airplanes, but it is also using RFID internally to achieve greater manufacturing efficiencies. Learn about some of the key projects Boeing has undertaken, as well as the benefits it is already seeing.
  Steve Georgevitch, Supply Chain Manager, Boeing
. Insights into the types of RFID systems that can deliver an ROI today
. The costs and challenges of deploying these systems
  2:30 pm—Breakout Sessions
Case Study – Using RFID to Track and Store High Value Interior and Structural Composite Molds

Learn how one supplier is using RFID and other strategies to track and store high value composite lay-up materials in a complex environment. The system tracks the items from system dispatch through the entire production process including the Oven/Autoclave where temperature and pressure dictate system design and also uses flexible storage logic to maximize utilization of critically constrained storage space. Learn how a positive ROI is delivered by reducing the time spent looking for the composite items, by reducing the amount of space required for storage, by reducing overall turn around time, and by automating production functions such as oven logging.
  Michael Metcalf, Program Manager, Nordam Group
. Understand the RFID systems for tracking molds
. Learn how to improve utilization and achieve an ROI with RFID
  3:20 pm—Breakout Sessions
  Health Care/Pharmaceutical:
Case Study—Hospital RFID Cabinets Track Inventory, Improve Billing

After a highly successful trial, King's Daughters Medical Center in Ashland, KY has more than doubled the number of cardiac medical equipment storage cabinets equipped with RFID technology. The cabinets enable the hospital to keep tabs on inventory, eliminate costs associated with expiration dates of the equipment, and linking with back-end systems to automate its processes for patient billing.
  Brian Taylor, Cardiac Systems Analyst, KDMC
. Benefits that can be achieved through better patient tracking
. Real-world issues hospitals are likely to encounter as they deploy RFID
