|From The Chief Editor|
|This year's National Manufacturing Week (March 7-10 in Chicago) includes an eight-session track on — you guessed it! — RFID. Within NMW's National Enterprise IT sub conference, this track spans Monday and Tuesday mornings and opens with a roundtable (8:30 Monday morning), discussing what can and should be done to put RFID to work in your warehouse. The panel includes IBM Global Service's RFID practice leader, Sean Campbell; AIDC industry veteran, John Hill; Zebra Technologies' RFID Manager, Matt Ream; and WMS vendor Provia's COO, John Pulling.
