UHF Tags on Metal—Optimizing Read Rates in a Tough Environment

Reading UHF-tags on metal is difficult, making data collection a challenge. Vendors have decided numerous special UHF-tags that can be put directly onto metal, but these differ significantly in read range, read rate and pricing. LogDynamics Lab has executed a series of tests in lab-environment and real-world scenarios using different UHF-portal solutions to compare the different applications. He shares the results of his research for the first time.
 Dieter Uckelmann, Manager, LogDynamics Lab, Univ. of Bremen
Insight into the different solutions for UHF-tags on metal
Best practices for improving read rates on metal

Smart Products—How Are You Doing?

The use of RFID and sensors in combination with ICT can be an effective way to cut costs and introduce new services. Edwin Kalischnig, Oracle's director of business development for RFID and sensor-based services in Europe, the Middle East & Africa, will provide a clear exposition of the latest developments on technologies and key business solutions. He will use a number of illustrative examples with significant opportunities and their business impact, including 2 EPC-IS use cases and the use of sensors in cool-chain projects. The information explosion that will result from the introduction of these technologies will push the requirements for the supporting IT systems to the extremes, requiring a true event-driven architecture.

RFID Is Fit to Track Clothes

International apparel and footwear retailers are moving forward with deploying RFID in the supply chain and in stores. German retailer Kaufhof Warenhaus has tested RFID to track clothes for the past three and a half years ago . The company explains the benefits of using RFID in both their supply chain and in their stores to manage inventory and replenishment. Among the benefits Kaufhof has found is cutting the time it takes to scan the contents of a delivery into inventory by 22 times. Lemmi Fashion, a German children's wear manufacturer, began tagging 100% of its products in 2004, enabling the company to increase its productivity and greatly reducing costs within one year of deployment. This session will highlight how international apparel and footwear retailers are moving forward with deploying RFID in the supply chain and in stores.
 Götz Pfeifferling, CIO, Lemmi Fashion
 Uwe Quiede, Logistik—Future Store Initiative, Kaufhof Warenhaus AG
An understanding of RFID's benefits in the retail/apparel supply chain

Sharing Data in the Food Supply Chain

BT Auto-ID Services, the BT Business Unit dedicated to delivering auto-ID solutions including RFID, has launched its first industry-specific managed service collaborative data exchange. The company hopes its new BT Foodnet service will help pull together data relating to materials and products used in the food industry and share it across the supply chain. The sources of data would be RFID and other auto-identifications systems, whether closed-loop or open-loop. In this session learn how the service is providing detailed information relating to products moving through the supply chain.
 Eddie Dodds, CTO, BT Auto-ID Services
Tips on deriving significant benefits in the supply chain from closed loop and open loop RFID
