Indian Aviation MRO Company Expects RFID to Reduce Labor by 50 Percent
The system, provided by Dolphin RFID, is enabling Aman Aviation & Aerospace Solutions to reduce the amount of time workers spend filling out paperwork and inputting information, as well as to ensure data accuracy.
Sep 19, 2016—
Aman Aviation & Aerospace Solutions, an Indian aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) company, is using an ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID solution from Dolphin RFID to track the work it provides to customers of its aircraft components. The company is also serving as a reseller for Dolphin RFID's solution so that Aman Aviation's customers can utilize the RFID tags for their own in-house inspections or inventory management.
Aman Aviation & Aerospace Solutions focuses on the repair and overhaul of hydraulic and pneumatic systems, as well as engine parts, used by private airlines in India and by helicopter operators. "We travel to the location of the helicopter where it is operating in order to service it," explains Rajendra Johri, the company's managing director. The component maintenance for private aircrafts is carried out at Aman Aviation's workshop.
Earlier this year, Aman Aviation formed a joint venture with Dolphin RFID to promote and market the use of radio frequency identification in airline operations, such as asset management, baggage tracking and maintenance management. The two companies intend to offer RFID solutions to both Indian and international airlines. Those that deploy the joint offering could not only benefit from RFID-based data related to Aman Aviation's inspection and repair work on aircraft components, the company reports, but they could also tag and track items requiring frequent in-house inspections, such as life vests and oxygen canisters.
Last month, Aman Aviation began utilizing the technology to manage its own services, and the company plans to introduce RFID-based tool tracking for its own operations in the near future. The system consists of UHF RFID tags from multiple providers and handheld readers supplied by Hanmi IT and Embisphere.
