Bar Code, RFID, and Automatic Identification (Auto ID) usage is practically mandatory. It is cost effective, competitive, and accurate, and, if you or yourcustomers don't require it now, you will shortly!

This course explores ALL of its uses! Bar Codes, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), and other Auto ID techniques are ways to gather information with minimum human involvement, providing accurate and rapid collection and dissemination of data through Automatic Data Capture (ADC). Instituting ADC allows you to know exactly what you have and where it is at all times in the organization’s supply chain.

The process uses computer technology to enter information accurately and quickly into an
organization's data system. Therefore, the information supplied by Bar Code/RF/Auto
ID systems makes it possible to operate in an almost "paperless" supply chain environment, even in conjunction with Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and the internet.

With the advent of programmable terminals and radio frequency, personal computing has provided you with a powerful, inexpensive, and accessible means for automatically collecting, storing, manipulating and reporting information.

Applications include labor tracking, quality control, inventory control, shipping and receiving, distribution, warehousing, invoicing, transportation and much more.

Attend and learn about bar code symbologies, RFID, scanner technologies, printer
technologies, integration with IT, project cost justification techniques and many more
applications to increase your supply chain resilience.

Not only is this seminar designed to help you strip away the hype and reveal what Bar
Coding/RFID/Auto ID is all about, but you will learn specifically how it can be useful to

This is not a seminar to delve into the details and inner working of how a bar code is generated, what its technical components are, or how many centimeters of space should exist between bars. This seminar is designed to help you determine how to get the most out of the use of automatic data capture, collection, and identification technologies.
