eSmart Source Inc. a leading system integrator of RFIDÂenabled solutions and a member of EPCglobal US today announced technology training program in RFID to help technical executives and project managers to get up to speed quickly on RFID.
At the current stage of RFID development there is a need for significant experimentation and configuration in the interaction of tags and readers. There is a shortage of qualified and experienced people in this work.
RFID Made Easy is a one-day course that familiarizes participants with the hardware, middleware, software and everything else necessary for successful RFID deployment. Training is provided in a technology-oriented manner for those individuals who need an in-depth understanding of RFID. At this intensive training program, our industry experts deliver an in-depth review of design concepts and installation issues. Topics at the classroom course include: RFID Fundamentals; Middleware Requirement; The EPCglobal Network; Integration issues; Managing the Data to be followed by Live RFID Demonstration. A certificate of completion will be awarded to all participants.
In addition, all participants will receive Free RFID Technical Tool Kit containing latest and updated information on industry standards, various sample software application programs, and variety of tags - a US$ 295 value - with their registration along with training material.
This is an informative and objective training class consisting of technical sessions to answer these questions:
1) What's the value of RFID and how it works?
2) How to practically deploy RFID technology?
3) How to build an infrastructure designed to handle the huge amount of data that RFID will generate?
4) What are the evolving EPC standards?
5) What are the integration Challenges?
Currently the course is being offered in San Francisco, Bay area every month starting October 2004 and will be offered in Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Phoenix and other cities in the coming months.
RFID is a means of identifying objects from a distance using radio frequency transmissions. An RFID tag, containing an electronic chip, stores data on the product within which it is embedded. A reader (fixed, mobile or handheld) is used to retrieve the information. As a wireless technology, RFID is effective in manufacturing as it enables accurate and real-time tracking of inventory by companies throughout an entire supply chain without the need for line-of-sight tags and readers (as in the case of bar code scanning). By helping companies observe and understand the movement of inventory in real-time, RFID will reduce instances of out-of-stocks and non-saleable product; shrinkage and product loss due to theft; and the cost and manpower affiliated with moving and monitoring inventory.
RFID is already being adopted by international retailers, including Metro Group and Tesco in Europe; Wal-Mart, Target and Albertsons in the United States; leading manufacturers, such as Gillette, Hewlett-Packard, Johnson & Johnson, Kimberly-Clark, Kraft Foods, Nestle, Procter & Gamble and Unilever; and the US Department of Defense.
