Apr 02, 2008RFID Journal has announced a partnership with the International Supply Chain Education Alliance (ISCEA) to offer a preconference training seminar entitled Going Physical Free. The seminar will be offered at RFID Journal LIVE! 2008, RFID Journal's sixth annual conference and exhibition, being held April 16-18 at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.

The focus of the seminar will be on helping participants define inventory record accuracy in terms of the benefits and costs that are important for their organization. Attendees will also learn how to establish an effective cycle-counting process that can improve inventory record accuracy, conduct effective root-cause analysis so they can identify and address issues causing poor performance, and build a business case and implementation plan to eliminate physical inventories. Those attending will gain an understanding of the implications of RFID technology on inventory record accuracy and cycle-counting processes.

"We're very pleased to be working with the ISCEA to bring a new type of education to our event," says Mark Roberti, founder and editor of RFID Journal. "Our attendees want to understand how RFID fits in with best practices, such as those elucidated in the ISCEA, so I firmly believe they will find this addition to the program extremely valuable."

The International Supply Chain Education Alliance conducts numerous workshops worldwide to improve the knowledge of manufacturing and service industry professionals. The organization's mission is to become a single source for supply chain knowledge and certification. ISCEA instructors consist of university professors and managers of major U.S. corporations with more than five years of work experience.

"We are pleased to be working with RFID Journal to bring one of our most popular programs to RFID Journal LIVE!, the world's premier RFID event," says Charles A. Watts, executive director of education and certification programs at ISCEA. "This is an opportunity to put RFID technology in the context of supply chain best practices."

RFID Journal LIVE! 2008 will feature eight educational tracks customized for individuals with different levels of knowledge of RFID—from beginner to experienced user. The conference is targeted to those interested in understanding how RFID can deliver real benefits in the aerospace/defense, manufacturing, retail/consumer packaged goods, pharmaceutical, and supply chain/logistics industries.

The event will also feature 10 preconference seminars aimed at specific industries and audience needs. There will be three co-located events: EPCglobal's Joint Action Group meeting, IEEE RFID 2008 and a Sam's Club supplier's meeting.

In addition, RFID Journal LIVE! 2008 will feature more than 175 leading technology providers exhibiting in the 100,000-square-foot exhibit hall, which will showcase live demonstration centers and, for the first time, technology companies competing for the new Best in Show Award, to be determined by a panel of judges with input from attendees.

RFID Journal LIVE! is the largest RFID event in the world. More than 2,500 people attended the 2007 conference, including most leading early adopters and pioneers of the technology.
