Case Study: Tagging Containers in D'Ieteren's Distribution Center
(Eric Sterken, D'Ieteren)
  • D'Ieteren's distribution centre supplies about 360 dealers with spare parts: by tagging the containers with RFID, errors were as good as eliminated (decrease by a factor of 3000).
  • This implementation, dating back to 1997, was far ahead of its time and still counts as a reference for the technology. In this seminar, Eric Sterken will discuss the technical challenges RFID represented then and represents still now .
