A leading airframe manufacturer in both the commercial and defense sectors is undertaking several projects employing RFID technology. RFID-based tracking and tracing of aircraft parts in both the production and maintenance phases of the lifecycle brings significant value to all stakeholders within the aviation ecosystem, including airlines, the supply chain and airframe manufacturers. The common thread for all of these stakeholders is an improvement in quality, productivity and maintainability over an aircraft’s lifecycle, spanning several years. The use of RFID enables automated data collection, verification and validation, resulting in improved accuracy and reduced flow time. Learn how the stakeholders are working together to maximize the benefits offered by the technology.
