  • Managing parts inventory with RFID
  • The use of RFID to reduce parts defects
  • Improving worker productivity and factory floor throughput with RFID
  • Integrating RFID with Six Sigma
  • Best practices for getting started with RFID
  • Key lessons and insights from manufacturing RFID projects.

At the end of the session, there will be a question and answer session with members of the RFID Technical Institute faculty and the guest speaker panel.

Industry guest speakers will provide profiles of successful manufacturing RFID projects, across a variety of industries and applications, producing beneficial, cost-effective results today.

At the conclusion of the class participants will also receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from DeVry University and a course certificate from the RFID Technical Institute.

The RFID focus during NMW includes a dedicated pavilion within the exhibition, where a number of the leading RFID hardware, software and systems integrators will be exhibiting and conducting educational seminars.
