RFID can play a key role in helping companies manage the inventory of materials arriving on a construction site, as well as reduce theft and improve the management of tools and other critical assets. This preconference seminar will share how end users are using RFID today. Additional presentations will explain the role of RFID in various applications, as well as which types of systems are most applicable, and how businesses can begin employing the technology on their construction sites.
RFID in Energy
This preconference seminar will examine the use of radio frequency identification in the energy sector. Topics will cover various types of RFID technologies, including passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF), passive high-frequency (HF), RuBee LWID, 802.11x, ZigBee, active UHF and many others. Sessions will also review a variety of application areas, such as laydown yards, production facilities, service centers, oil rigs, refineries, pipelines and more. Speakers will focus on end-user case studies and the benefits that RFID could provide to chemical, gas and oil firms, as well as the challenges that must be overcome to achieve such benefits.
RFID for Food and Agriculture
This preconference seminar is designed to educate growers, distributors and producers of food and food products, as well as systems integrators and other implementers, regarding the benefits of using RFID to track the location and monitor the temperature of food as it moves through the supply chain. The seminar will explain the current state of RFID technology, and reveal how your organization can deploy the technology to achieve such benefits today.
RFID in Health Care
In this track, leading health-care providers and early adopters will share real-world case studies revealing the business benefits of radio frequency identification. Learn how hospitals and health-care organizations are using the technology to improve patient monitoring and safety, increase asset utilization with real-time tracking, boost revenue with automated billing, reduce medical errors by tracking medical devices and enhance supply chain efficiencies.
How to Choose the Right RFID System:
RFID for IT Professionals
RFID systems are not just another data-input source for a business' back-end systems. For companies to get the most value from an RFID investment, it's essential to have a robust software architecture for capturing data and turning it into information that can be used by business applicationsin a way that provides for changing technology and business requirements. This seminar will explain how to build a complete software architecture, including the structure of RFID-based visibility data that enterprise applications consume, the data-capture software that creates this information, and the various architecture and product choices that an IT architect faces in building and deploying a successful system. The presenters will also explain how to employ RFID to track data-center assets.
RFID Journal University
This seminar has been our most popular preconference offering for seven years. RFID Journal University is designed to provide those new to radio frequency identification with the foundational knowledge needed to begin understanding how RFID can be applied to solve specific business problems, so that you can choose the right option for a specific application and select the proper vendors to achieve a successful outcome.
RFID for 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 RFID technologies realistically enable inventory-management best practices. Participants will learn how to quantify savings and benefits by RFID-enabling warehouse- and inventory-management operations, and the presenters will explain how to build a working RFID portal for automated receiving and inventory tracking.
RFID-Enhanced Social Networking
RFID is being used to enhance social networking by linking the real world with online communities. This seminar will focus on one of the hottest applications of RFID for manufacturers, retailers and marketers interested in capturing the attention of tech-savvy consumers.
