RFID in Manufacturing 2014
November 6, 2014
Manufacturing companies across many industries are employing RFID to achieve major benefits, both in their supply chains and in their factory operations. Hear how leading manufacturing firms are using RFID to achieve benefits today.
RFID in Manufacturing 2014
Welcome and Introduction
Improving Workflow With RFID
Manufacturers around the globe are using RFID to improve production flow, optimize their supply chain, manage assets and increase inventory accuracy. By tagging assets and returnable transport items (RTIs), companies have been able to obtain the visibility they need into their processes, in order to track production flow in real time, and thereby identify bottlenecks so they can improve cycle times. RFID also provides automated and accurate inventory counts, as it tracks parts moving through the process. This reduces the amount of time workers spend searching for specific parts (or conducting manual inventory audits), while also ensuring accurate scheduling of assembly operations, by having a live count of the work-in-process (WIP) inventory. See how RFID and visual tagging systems have been deployed at several manufacturing facilities to not only gain efficiencies, but also reduce costs by eliminating paper-based instructions and tags in their processes.
Developing an RFID Strategy for Manufacturing
RFID can deliver a great deal of benefits to manufacturers in many different areas, but without coherent strategies, companies often wind up deploying the technology piecemeal, only to find that it fails to meet their longer-term needs. This session will explain how to create a long-term strategy that can enable businesses to choose technologies that will best meet their ongoing needs across a wide variety of applications, as well as how to prioritize projects in the near term.
Choosing the Right RFID Technology for Manufacturing
Manufacturers are using RFID technology for a wide array of applications, including tracking parts bins, returnable transport containers, tools, work-in-process, finished goods inventory and much more. Choosing the right RFID system for each application, while building out an infrastructure for tracking and better managing other assets, requires a clearly thought-out strategy. This session outlines the steps manufacturers need to take to take to choose the right technology for today—and for tomorrow.
RFID in Manufacturing 2015: Additive Manufacturing, Composites, Accountability and the IoT
Industrial manufacturing processes continue to evolve to reflect new programs, materials, processes and technologies. This creates both new opportunities and challenges for manufacturers, as they integrate RFID, real-time location system and Internet of Things technologies into their operations and into their own products. This session will present real-world examples of how RFID, RTLS and the IoT are being deployed in manufacturing environments. Project design, enterprise systems integration and implementation options will be discussed.
