Kimberly-Clark conducted a pilot program at one of its plants that produce non-woven materials used in the manufacture of Huggies-brand diapers. The pilot showed a decrease in shipping errors, as well as a reduction in loading times. In this session, recorded at RFID Journal LIVE! 2009, K-C explains how it employed passive RFID tags to track the finished materials as they came off the machine and were shipped to the company's manufacturing plants.
