Industry-Specific Tracks

RFID Journal LIVE! 2007, RFID Journal's 5th annual executive conference and exhibition, features eight tracks with content designed for those with different levels of RFID experience and those looking for industry-specific solutions. Below is a description of the five industry-specific conference tracks. For the sessions in each track, please click on the track name in the left-hand navigation bar.

Retail/Consumer Goods
Companies across the retail and consumer packaged goods (CPG) supply chain have been among the early adopters of RFID and EPC technologies. Many are already seeing early benefits and are prepared to share their insights at RFID Journal LIVE! 

Spacer How to use RFID mandates to improve shipping accuracy and drive internal efficiencies
  How to meet retail tagging requirements while laying the groundwork for internal benefits
  The results of the latest research into RFID’s benefits in the cold chain
  Real-world insights about RFID’s ability to monitor fresh produce
Best practices for improving promotional sales using EPC data
  How various applications on the market can leverage RFID data
  Ways to use RFID data to create business benefits across the supply chain today

Health Care/Pharmaceutical
Perhaps in no other industry is RFID’s potential ROI as clear as in health care and pharmaceuticals. Whether it is reducing counterfeiting, complying with new and existing regulations, reducing liabilities or gaining unprecedented efficiencies, early adopters are finding RFID can deliver huge benefits.

Spacer How to choose the right RFID asset-tracking system
  What types of medical assets that can be tagged
  How to set up a UHF Gen 2 system for authenticating drugs
  The impact of RFID on existing drug-production processes
How RFID can improve drug safety
  How to tag metal assets and ensure high read rates
  Real-world issues hospitals will encounter as they deploy RFID for patient and asset tracking

Companies will be required to put RFID tags on shipments to the U.S. Department of Defense and airplane makers Boeing and Airbus. This track focuses on how to meet tagging mandates and achieve benefits internally and across the supply chain.

Spacer How to meet the DOD’s RFID and UID mandates, as well as RFID mandates from Boeing and Airbus
  The benefits of tracking high-value parts internationally
  How to track tools to improve utilization and reduce losses
  Strategies using RFID to reduce counterfeiting of parts
Best practices for improving sharing supply chain data
  How to deploy sensor-based systems today to monitor a wide variety of operating conditions
  How to track work-in-process

Companies across industries are using RFID to achieve major benefits, both in their supply chains and in their factory operations. This can be done cost-effectively by tracking reusable containers, work in process and finished inventory.

Spacer Best practices for using RFID to reduce manufacturing errors
  How to improve the tracking of work-in-process with RFID
  Strategies for linking shop floor RFID to manufacturing systems
  The benefits of using RFID to cost-effectively track parts bins
Methods for migrating parts tracking from bar codes to RFID
  Real-world issues you are likely to encounter as you deploy RFID in your manufacturing facility
  Pitfalls you should avoid as you roll out RFID in your manufacturing systems

Transportation and logistics companies will play a key role in ensuring end-to-end visibility in the supply chain. Some are already tagging products for their customers. Others are examining how they can benefit internally by improving the utilization of containers and chassis with RFID tracking.

Spacer The different types of RFID systems used in transportation/ logistics
  The system requirements for using RFID to track vehicles and their maintenance histories
  How RFID can cut costs and improve operational efficiencies
  Strategies for tracking and securing cargo shipments
Best practices for sharing EPC data with supply chain partners
  Insights into how RFID can benefit shippers, ports and carriers
  Ways to use RFID to create new business models
