2 Agenda Introduction RFID Lab at the University of Parma Global RF Labs Alliance network Research projects Technology tests RFID Warehouse Yard management The value of Information Cold chain pilot RFID Logistics Pilot Project 2

3 RFID Lab the origins RFID Lab at the University of Parma stems from long lasting research activities carried out at the Industrial Engineering Department of the University of Parma. Research topics are related to RFID and EPC applications to optimize logistics and supply chain processes Major companies in the food industry have developed feasibility studies for value added traceability projects, grounded on RFID implementation. GS1 Italy has funded a research project aimed at assessing the potentials of RFID and the EPCGlobal Network in the FMCG; similar researches have been commissioned by the Italian Ministry for Technological Development and Innovation The need to test practical feasibility of RFID deployment for the automation of main warehouse processes and activities 3

4 RFID Lab overview Research centre mission Research fields how to deploy and implement RFID and EPC Networking for more efficient and effective business processes RFID and EPC network deployment, BPR, business value and ROI, software and hardware integration Business processes Industries Technology transfer models Facility & equipments Operations, Industrial Logistics and supply chain management, track and trace Food, FMCG, Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Technology partners Media partners Board of Advisors (rosters) 2,000 sq.ft. Closed loop high speed roller and belt conveyor, sorter (cases), roller conveyor (pallet), wrapping machine, FLT, drive in storage shelf, full scale dock door Ripening chamber for cold chain testing 4

5 RFID Lab overview 5

6 RFID lab - location Department of Industrial Engineering University of Parma Dedicated Area: 150 m 2 expanded in the near future with University development programs Parma Science Park 20 hectares for labs and facilities available for companies 6

7 Global RF Labs Alliance network What is GRFLA? Confederation of RF-focused labs Purpose is to provide a mechanism for communication and collaboration among RF labs GRFLA members share resources, such as students and professors, and collaborate (as appropriate) on research projects Leveraging each other competencies to: avoid duplication of efforts; handle large scale projects and better access to research funding; Speed up the dissemination of research results to industries RFID Lab is a charter member of GRFLA 7

8 Global RF Labs Alliance network 8

9 Global RF Labs Alliance network International Journal of RF Technologies: Research and Applications Endorsed by GRFLA, edited by Taylor & Francis Aim and Scope will establish a forum for exchanging information and research results regarding RF technology deployment, data analytics, and business value creation. Although grounded on solid scientific backgrounds, the Journal will only publish original and challenging papers that have a clear applicability to the business world and are focused on driving business value. 9
