Sign up for the These practical application sessions will deliver high impact training RFID Technology Focus Day and dedicate more time to dialogue led by globally recognized experts. and networking in a classroom environment. During a Focus Day, you can expect: This in-depth and interactive series of workshops will examine • Smaller, classroom-style sessions current research and development in RFID technology, standards, • Detailed materials and interoperability. Hear from leading academic researchers and • Live applications government organizations on the technology and processes that • In-depth discussions with the class leaders and fellow attendees are revolutionizing the supply chain management function. 8:00am – 8:30am Registration & Coffee Technology that is revolutionizing asset visibility! 8:30am – 10:30am RFID Innovations and Technical Solutions Workshop As radio frequency identification (RFID) technology expands and improves, research on new technology and standards plays a pivotal role in the advancement of supply chain management. RFID has become a major component of the DoD supply chain as well as every major manufacturing organization in the world. This workshop will present the most cutting edge and practical advancements in RFID to date. What will be covered: Session Leaders: • Latest RFID technology advancements Dr. Marlin Mickle, Nickolas A. DeCecco Professor, and • Interoperability challenges and solutions Director, RFID Center of Excellence, University of Pittsburgh • Standards testing and compliance updates Dr. Peter Hawrylak, RFID Center of Excellence, University of Pittsburgh How you will benefit: Implement new technical advancements to improve supply chain operations at your • organization Optimize RFID readability and data transfer for maximum efficiency • Learn how to integrate current technology in any supply chain system • Current updates to DLA’s asset visibility system 10:30am – 12:30pm DLA’s AV System Update and Hands-On Training As DLA’s asset visibility system continues to expand its capabilities, it is imperative to understand the new interface and increased functionality of the program. This interactive Asset Visibility (AV) workshop will demonstrate how the AV application can be used to track assets throughout the logistics pipeline. What will be covered: How you will benefit: • How the application has the ability to track items that are on the shelf ready to issue • Learn what the latest updates to AV are and how they will or from the original requisition be of direct benefit to your organization • How to follow items through the transportation pipeline to final destination • Leverage IRRIS mapping technology to improve asset • A demonstration of how Passive and Active RFID technology are enablers within AV tracking through the single AV portal that are part of the end to end visibility of assets • Receive hands-on training that will guide you through the • The partnership with SDDC and the ability to integrate IRRIS with the current AV system full range of AV tools Session Leader: Karen Blanck, Deputy Program Manager, Asset Visibility, DLA 12:30pm – 1:00pm Lunch Lab Tested Techniques to Improve RFID Readability 1:00pm – 3:00pm A System Level Approach to Maximizing Supply Chain Productivity and Efficiency RF tagging and reading innovations are contributing to efficiency within the supply chain, both from a shipper's viewpoint and a purchaser's desire. A main component of that is whether RFID tags can be read and written to during processing, handling, storage, and logistics, regardless of where this occurs. This workshop will focus on how to maximize RFID readability in order to improve supply chain system accuracy and efficiency. What will be covered: • Determine how well reads may occur within a facility or • New technology and methods to enhance tag readability maintenance depot • Standards testing to determine the RFID read fields for case loads and for pallet loads • What this research means for you and how you can • Manufacturer case studies to best define how to pre-apply tags in the shipping case develop effective and meaningful improvements to your supply chain How you will benefit: Learn how product materials, packaging materials, and product shape impact readability Session Leader: • Robb Clarke, MBA, PhD, MSU School of Packaging Auto-ID Testing and Research Center, Michigan State University Independent Technology and Product Evaluations 3:00pm – 5:00pm RFID Testing and Technology Assessment A promising technology, RFID has been thrust into the forefront by recent mandates and recommendations in managing the supply chain for retailers, government agencies, and pharmaceuticals. Due to the newness of the technology and lack of widespread performance standards, there has been a lack of reliable, unbiased, independent information about the performance of differing RFID equipment.
