End-to-End Supply Chain Visibility
Recent innovations enhance the ability of passive RFID to play a crucial role in improving supply chain performance. Using RFID alone or in combination with other edge technologies allows warehouse, distribution center, cross-dock and manufacturing plant operations to leverage the real-time location of tagged inventory and assets over a wide area of a facility to automatically track materials and assets through the supply chain from end to end, as well as locate people in targeted areas to optimize time and assign tasks. This session will discuss these capabilities, the best time and conditions to apply them, and how they can be applied to raise performance, increase inventory control and reduce costs.
Speaker: Mark Wheeler, Director of Supply Chain Solutions, Zebra

Building Your RFID Business Case
RFID can provide several advantages over existing automated-identification technologies within supply-chain and inventory-management process. In order to build a realistic business case and justify your investment both qualitatively and quantifiably, you will need to accurately evaluate RFID’s marginal impact and benefits over existing technologies. This session will help you understand how to measure the technology’s impact on your supply chain process performance, by using specific key performance indicators. In addition, the presenters will explain how to document an RFID business case within your four walls, and throughout your supply chain.
Speaker: Ygal Bendavid, Director of the IoT Lab, and Professor in the Department of Analytics, Operations & IT (AOTI)/School of Management (ESG) at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM).
