Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a technology that will enable improved efficiency and reduce costs. In a warehouse environment, there are primarily three key applications for RFID. The first is to track and trace the product is. The second is performance, that is, supply and demand. The third is inventory control, management and forecasting.
Recently, a joint research study was conducted by Industry Canada, Supply Chain & Logistics Canada (SCL) and a cross section of industry leaders. From the research study, a report is being compiled that will provide guidance to small and medium-sized enterprises and their large customers summarizing the benefits of supply chain industrial sustainability and RFID applications beyond their customer mandates.
At the 2nd Canadian RFID Conference, the findings of this research study will be presented for the first time and the complete report in English and French will be available for distribution.
The 2nd Canadian RFID Conference, will be held in Markham, ON on April 19th and 20th, 2005 and will bring together some of the most experienced people in the industry.
The two-day conference will focus on how to successfully implement an RFID based system. The first day will cover technical topics such as standards,integration, readers, printers, tags and smart labels. The second day will focus on business issues such as “How to Profit from RFID” and address Supply Chain, Retail, Healthcare, E-Commerce and other applications.
The Conference presents the largest and most comprehensive forum in the country on RFID. The event was sold out in its first year weeks in advance and current registration continues to exceed expectations.
