What You Will Learn

Supply chain systems have been trying to deploy RFID technology as a real time tracking tool for years. Difficulties related to RFID choke point placement, software, and process flow has limited our ability to use RFID productively. Imagine being able to look at your bulk warehouse area and know what is there without any human intervention. Recently, new and improved technology has become available to truly deploy RFID to show movements in a warehouse without the complications of the past. This new technology uses passive, low cost RFID tags to track inventory, assets, and people throughout the facility. Our seminar will explain the new technology, how it benefits supply chain users and where to deploy it properly.

Key Takeaways

  • New passive Wide Area RFID technology
  • How and when to deploy the technology in a supply chain environment to gain operational efficiencies

What You Will Learn

At the epicenter of an organization is your customer. The customer is the primary focus – it’s not that the customer is always right; it’s that the customer is everything. Each organization needs to understand how their customer defines value; the customer stimulates the demand for a service/product; the customer defines the requirements; the customer evaluates the results. Optimize all areas within your supply chain to deliver customer value.

Key Takeaways

  • The key is to be proactive with your supply chain and not reactive.
  • Learn how to look for opportunities to improve your supply chain.
