Track I: Unlocking Value in Manufacturing/Logistics Processes with Intelligent RFID
Speaker: Bob Proctor, CEO, Link Labs

Manufacturing and Logistics companies run on tight timelines and are always under pressure to improve the bottom line. Improved visibility into the location of parts, supplies, shipments, and products can be achieved at a fraction of existing offerings by using new technologies. AirFinder, Link Labs’ indoor/outdoor asset tracking, and monitoring solution, is one way to achieve this. Beyond delivering location, AirFinder is used by customers to provide alerts, feed analytics, and give continuous monitoring data.

The session will highlight several AirFinder use cases unlocking value and hard dollar ROI in manufacturing and logistics. This will include discussion of collaboration between Link Labs and Barcoding at a 350,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility, where AirFinder is tracking the location of specialty racks for supplies/parts, reducing staff-hours per day spent locating them.

This session will introduce you to a better way to manage your inventory and assets. 



Track I: WIP 2.0: From Spreadsheets to Big Data 
Speaker: Param Shah, Factory Four
Sponsor: Factory Four

As the manufacturing industry is trending towards mass customization and producing more complex products, managing production effectively is becoming a more significant challenge day by day. Still, the majority of manufacturers cannot tell you immediately where an order is on their floor if you asked them.

Legacy systems and spreadsheets are not flexible enough to handle the unique workflows of each individual manufacturer, making their work-in-process (WIP) a black box. By leveraging the power of cloud-native applications, software exists today that can take manufacturers with a basic level of traceability to advanced in 30 days. Learn how you can replace your spreadsheets and clipboards with big data and real-time action in days.
