Utilizing IoT technologies to Improve Workflow
Manufacturers around the globe are currently using RFID to improve production flow, optimize their supply chain, manage assets and increase inventory accuracy. By tagging assets and returnable transport items, 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. Learn more about the next generation in RFID for manufacturing, including how new technologies facilitated by the Internet of Things can be used not only to track items and count inventories, but also to provide enhanced visibility and real-time process control. Join us to see how RFID- and IoT-based visual tagging systems (e-paper) 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.
Speaker: Ed Nabrotzky, Chief Solutions Officer, Omni-ID

Choosing the Right RFID Technology for Manufacturing
RFID technology can be leveraged across the full product lifecycle—development, production and in-market. Manufacturers implement RFID into production lines to optimize workflows or embed RFID technology into finished goods for brand protection, performance and maintenance. Each approach can be combined for maximum value, based on business requirements. Choosing the right RFID system for each application requires a clearly thought-out strategy, and taking into consideration the various physical and logistical aspects. This session will give examples of both types of applications, and will outline the right steps in choosing the proper technology for today—and for tomorrow.

RFID Speeds Vehicles Through Assembly
Troy Design & Manufacture (TDM), a subsidiary of Ford Motor Co., is using an RFID-based solution to reduce the amount of labor time employees spend manually tracking work-in-progress (WIP) on paper. Three years after installing the system at the new plant—which converts various vehicles from Ford Motor Co. into Police Interceptor models—TDM found that the solution saves five to seven seconds from each workstation process compared with the amount of time required to perform bar-code scans, as well as enabling personnel to focus on the value-based work at hand. As a result, the firm has managed to outperform its expected production rates. Hear how RFID is being used to improve WIP data accuracy, reduce labor times and increase production output rates.

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.
