Smart Supply Chain Forum

29-30 November – Room AlfaSigma

Manufacturers and distributors of durable and consumer products are finding that the benefits of RFID and advanced data collection can outweigh the challenges of implementation in plant operations as well as in distribution.

How can quality in production processes be improved through the back-tracking of individual assets?

Is RFID the only way to implement smart inventory management? How can the key obstacles to adoption be overcome?
