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.

Utilizing IoT Technologies to Improve Workflow

Manufacturers around the globe are currently using RFID to improve material flow management, manage assets and increase inventory accuracy. By tagging assets, work-in-process materials and returnable transport items, companies are able to obtain the process visibility they need to track production flow in real time and thereby identify bottlenecks to improve counts and cycle times. The next generation of RFID for manufacturing includes new technologies facilitated by the Internet of Things that 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 high-memory, embedded and high-temperature RFID products and IoT-based visual tagging systems (e-paper) have been deployed at several manufacturing facilities. Gaining efficiencies, reducing costs and eliminating paper are just some of the benefits that will be discussed.

Protect Your Product’s Life Cycle With RFID: Five Ways Manufacturers Can Optimize Consumable Product Programs

Manufacturers of industrial goods are feeling the urge to track and protect the entire value chain of original equipment produced in the factory, to the initial sale and repeatable sales of replaceable parts and consumables. Companies combat many threats affecting profitability and performance, while ensuring superior operability and brand protection. This session will provide tips to optimize manufacturing processes and manage the entire value chain using the right RFID technology.

Vision Meets Reality: Balancing Sensor Innovations With Operational Performance

RFID and IoT sensors continue to proliferate in manufacturing, but many have yet to formulate a cohesive strategy to leverage sensor data in day-to-day operations. This session will present real-world examples of how RFID, RTLS and IoT technologies are being deployed in manufacturing environments. Project design, enterprise systems integration and implementation options will be discussed.
