Robert Ball, COO of Atlas RFID Solutions, will review lessons learned on implementing RFID-based technology on construction projects across 5 continents.
Robert has over 12 years of combined experience in construction project management and construction software solutions, and has played an influential role in nearly every Jovix deployment, from Australia to the Canadian Oil Sands, to South Korea and the Middle East. He will share his experience on common obstacles, best practices, and lessons learned in the deployment of over 200 auto-ID based implementations within the industrial construction market. Common obstacles have included data integrity challenges, complex Owner-EPC contractual arrangements, global supply chains, and extreme environments.
With his depth and breadth of experience, Robert will share:
• How to apply best practices for improving supply chain visibility
• How to set conditions for success through valuable lessons learned
• Progress that can be achieved if we capitalize on the technology that is available now
• Where he thinks technology in construction & supply chain is headed
• What is coming?
This presentation will include project case studies, discussions on collaborative software integrations, and best practices for Owners, EPCs, contractors, fabricators, and suppliers, and a live Q&A.
