Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) September 14, 2005
For the first time in Philadelphia, best-in-class technology companies are teaming up to present the Mechanics of RFID, a no-nonsense, one day workshop focused on Radio Frequency Identification and its implementation in manufacturing and distribution organizations. Top RFID technology providers will present and demonstrate both RFIDÂs benefits and shortcomings including; Acsis, Avery Dennison, Lowry, LXE, Productivity by RFID, Red Prairie, RF Code, VanguardID and X-ident. This uniquely effective educational event is created and produced by Productivity by RFID, a leading RFID Consultant, Integrator and Educator. It takes place on October 6, 2005 at the offices of the sponsor, the Delaware Valley Industrial Resource Center.
The workshop is of special value to manufacturers and distributors of the Department of Defense, Wal-Mart, Target, Albertsons, Boeing, Airbus and the FDA - organizations that have mandated or will shortly mandate the use of RFID in their supply chains. It is designed to help Executive Management, Information Technology Professionals and Operations personnel learn more about RFID technology, benefits, costs and deployments. The workshop will also cover how to build a business case to pursue RFID implementation and achieve Return on investment.
ÂRFIDÂs capabilities make it the productivity tool of the present and future for both manufacturing and distribution,Â said Rob Steinberg, President of Productivity by RFID, and architect of the workshop. ÂToday, the U.S. Department of Defense, Wal-Mart, Albertsons, and Target are mandating RFIDÂs use by their suppliers. Others, such as Boeing, Airbus and the FDA are developing similar mandates. Tomorrow, RFID will become the operating norm for manufacturers and distributors in every supply chain. This workshop is designed to teach business leaders what they need to know to begin transitioning to an RFID environment.Â
Mechanics of RFID will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. on October 6 at the Delaware Valley Industrial Resource Center, 2905 Southampton Road, Philadelphia, PA 19154.

About RFID: Radio Frequency Identification is a set of wireless technologies using radio waves to transmit information between a silicon chip and a reader. RFID tags can signal their presence, their unique identity, their location and other user-defined information. Objects tagged with RFID can be tracked, sorted, inventoried, picked, distributed and assembled faster and easier than ever before.
