Challenges with UDI Implementation | Jay Crowley, USDM and Dennis Black, BD. As more countries, regulators and payors introduce UDI and UDI-like requirements, manufacturers and users struggle to understand the best approach for implementation, as well as the common overarching goal is to bring visibility, control and connectivity to the many related regulatory and commercial device-related activities. These activities cover the total lifecycle of a device including design, manufacturing, distribution, and postmarket surveillance and will ultimately include long-term safety, effectiveness, and value. All of this necessitates a level of control and visibility over your products and processes that may not exist today and which may require new systems to support these activities. This presentation will discuss the direction of these global initiatives and the need for visibility and control of your devices and product data and the related systems and processes.

Real-Time Job, Label, RFID, and Barcode Data to Your Application | Doug Seitz, Printronix Auto-ID. Do you need to know whether the job you submitted printed or whether every label printed successfully? Do you want an audit record of every barcode grade and RFID inlay encoding? Would you like this information in the same application that you used to submit the job? Would you like to control printer settings from your application? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, find out how easy it is to add an architected set of queries to your application to get real-time data from the printer directly into your application.
Product Traceability across the Verticals | Susan Flake, Avery Dennison; Sprague Ackley, Digimarc; Don Durm, PLM Trailer Leasing.
