Class Description

The purpose of this class is to help people determine how ready their company is to implement systems and components of systems that include automatic identification (bar codes and radio frequency -- RFID) and data collection technologies. It provides 3 exercises including an Excel spreadsheet to calculate your level of readiness.

At the end of the class, and after you take the self-exam, you will be ready to answer the question,  “What must my company do to prepare itself to use new technologies?"

The class will help you see the big picture, understand the elements and understand your real mission so you can save the time otherwise wasted in false starts and learning too much about the wrong things and not enough about the right things.
