That's the question many companies keep asking when it comes to RFID. A seminar that may offer some answers will be held in September.
Developed by the University of Arkansas, the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), and Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Solutions (VICS), the "Item-Level RFID: The Road to ROI" seminar looks at what kind of return on investment companies can expect from RFID in general, and item-level tagging in particular. At the event, which takes place Sept. 9-10, Dr. Bill Hardgrave will present the results from Phase III of the University of Arkansas' "Apparel and Footwear Item-Level RFID Tagging" study, which addresses the technology's ROI.
Other presentations will look at RFID's role in electronic article surveillance (EAS) to prevent shoplifting, how to turn RFID data into useful information, and the results of various RFID pilots. Attendees can also expect primers on this technology as well as hands-on demonstrations. The seminar takes place on the University of Arkansas' Fayetteville, Ark., campus and includes a tour of the school's RFID Lab.
