ATLANTA, GA -- According to Henry Nisiobincki, the idea that each item is unique in woodworking holds true more than in any other industry. Nisiobincki, RFID Program Manager at American Woodwork Corporation, faced this challenge as he guided the company to benefit from RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) technology.
"The questions we asked were, how could we identify the unique history of each unique part? And how can we use that information to help measure quality, control process flows, and improve inventory accuracy?"
Nisiobincki said that by using integrated RFID technology to create a unique identity for each piece, American Woodmark Corporation has seen continuous benefit and value. He will show how a simple low-cost addition to each piece can be the solution for endless cost-savings, as well as the platform for future innovation. He will discuss American Woodmark's RFID integration in his presentation at IWF on August 21, titled, A Unique Technology, in a Unique Part, for a Unique Industry. His session is part of the all-day Woodworking Network Leadership Forum. The Leadership Forum is sponsored by J B Cutting.
At American Woodmark Corporation, Nisiobincki manages the RFID Program from a corporate level. He works closely with the organization's manufacturing plants to understand processes, identify key issues, and develop unique and innovative RFID technology solutions to relieve those issues. His career at American Woodmark started in IT Development and IT Project Management before transitioning into RFID. He said is excited to share the unique and extensive application of RFID at IWF.
The targeted audience for this session includes: C-Level management, rising stars and innovators from across the wood products industry including CEO’s, owners, team managers and entrepreneurs and investors. Registration for the Woodworking Network Leadership Forum is $395 until August 1 and $450 thereafter. Lunch and admission to the Leadership Reception following the symposia are included.
