The University of Kansas is offering a two-day RFID Cold Chain implementation course, RFID in the Cold Chain: Justifying and Deploying Your Cold Chain Solution, Thursday & Friday, February 8 & 9, 2007, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This seminar is designed for engineers, technicians, executives and other professionals who are new to RFID and need to understand how to apply and implement RFID in their cold chain. All members of an RFID implementation team will profit from the practical business and technical advice presented. Industries who should attend the class include:
• Produce growers/providers and distributors
• Meat and fish packers/providers and distributors
• Pharmaceuticals and other industries where expiration and freshness of goods are critical to cost, quality or safety factors
• Fresh goods wholesalers
• Fresh goods retailers and grocers
• Food service suppliers
• Restaurant chains
• Reusable Plastic Container (RPC) providers
• Transportation and logistics providers

Our instructor is Michael McCartney, founder and principal of Quality Logistics Management (QLM), a consulting practice focusing on RFID technology and its implementation. In 2004, McCartney established the first RFID Perishable Testing Center inside a working production plant, and assisted in the establishment of the first EPC-certified RFID lab in Europe in June 2005 at the Danish Technological Institute, Copenhagen, Denmark. Our instructor’s technical and business knowledge is combined in an unbiased, vendor-neutral training session aimed at solving business problems

Attendees will walk away from our course with A CD-ROM containing class presentations, ROI calculators, and vendor questionnaires; A copy of the second edition of RFID Labeling: Smart Labeling Concepts & Applications for the Consumer Packaged Goods Supply Chain; and QLM’s 12 step implementation guide that will enable them to better interpret and master the foundations of enduring business achievement. They will also receive access to our discussion website where they can discuss their progress with the instructors and other attendees after the seminar.
