Class Description:

The goal of this session is to help people understand, in layman’s terms, the RFID based EPC global network in the context of today’s supply chain needs. To do this the session also explains how RFID relates to bar codes and why RFID is being used. It also explains the important fact that “Bar codes and EPCs will coexist for many years to come.” In the words of the UCC and EPCglobal (the organizations promoting the use of RFID in the supply chain)

After participating in this session people will be able to discuss how and when either or both technologies can benefit their company. They will also be better prepared to understand what major retailers like Wal-Mart see as advantages to the use of RFID technology and the EPCglobal Network.

Session Outline:

  • Introduction – Some Points of Confusion

  • What We Are Talking About

  • How the EPCglobal Network is to Work

  • RFID vs. Bar Codes
