RFID in Warehouse and Inventory Management
This one-day preconference seminar will introduce participants to RFID applications in inventory and warehouse management. Presented by Academia RFID, the course will present practical examples of how radio frequency identification realistically enables inventory-management best practices. Participants will learn how to quantify savings and benefits by RFID-enabling warehouse- and inventory-management operations, and presenters will explain how to build a working RFI

New to RFID? Here's your opportunity to gain a basic introduction to the fundamentals of the technology. The differences between the various classes of tags will be explained, including active and passive systems, and the need for additional IT systems to build upon RFID in real-world applications will be highlighted. The session will also include a brief overview of the EPCglobal network, the future of ISO standards, ETSI reader regulations and the latest standardization efforts worldwide. Finally, the relationship between different standards in the area of RFID and EPC technologies, including the latest EPC Gen 2 standard, will be presented.

RFID Best Practices for Inventory Management
As the economy begins to recover, it is more important than ever to accomplish more with fewer resources. But is it realistically possible to increase customer satisfaction while lowering costs and raising profits? This session will show how leading companies are using RFID to achieve that goal, by providing specific examples of how the technology ties in with inventory-management techniques to enable organizations to redesign their processes and perform more efficiently.

Is RFID the Right Choice for Your Business?
Radio frequency identification has the potential to be a revolutionary technology, but how can you use it to gain visibility over your inventory? And which technology would be more appropriate for your specific case? This session will outline a methodology used to discover RFID opportunities that have the potential to improve efficiencies, reduce costs and transform the way you manage and control your warehouse.
How to Build Your Own Inventory-Management RFID Portal
You've probably seen several RFID dems, so instead of demonstrating a working portal, we'll build one right before your eyes, and show how easily you can do it on your end. Our goal will be to help you achieve a working portal within a few days of returning home, so that you can test out some inventory-management scenarios yourself.
Developing an RFID Business Case and Calculating the ROI
Identifying opportunities within your warehouse is an important first step, but justifying which opportunity should be seized first can be a daunting task. Find out how to develop an RFID business case and justify your investment, both qualitatively and quantifiably, through the presentation of a real-world supply chain management case study in which inventory moves from a manufacturer through a distributor and down to a retailer.
Developing an RFID Business Case and Getting Your Project Started
This session will present a proven methodology used to discover problems and opportunities that can be addressed with radio frequency identification, which has the potential to improve efficiencies and reduce expenses. Discover how to measure the impact, identify possible pitfalls and determine the success of your RFID initiative, by gaining valuable resources necessary to help you move forward toward adoption.
