Seminar Series About Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) to be Held at Baylor

Sept. 16, 2005

From October 21-22, 2005, Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business will be conducting the seminar series "RFID Integrated Supply Chains," about the use of Radio Frequency Identification in business applications.

The seminar will feature various university scholars of Sloan Industry Studies that will speak on RFID supply chain and logistics business application studies.

"RFID is the fastest growing technology for supply chain operations," said Dr. Pedro Reyes, professor of Operations Management, coordinator of the event. "The use of RFID will eventually become the standard."

Among the topics presented, keynote speaker Ron Ozment, Director of Forecast and Replenishment for H-E-B, and others will be discussing ways that RFID can improve operation cost, improve customer service and decrease counterfeiting.

All events will occur on the fifth floor of the Cashion Academic Center at the Hankamer School of Business on the Baylor campus in Waco, Texas.
