A manufacturer is using an RFID solution to gain visibility of aircraft engine components as they pass through various departments for repair. When an engine arrives at the facility for repairs or maintenance, each component could undergo a complex route that includes cleaning, inspection and repair, with the work taking place on as many as a dozen different machines and stations. Tracking every component is absolutely critical; if even a single part is missing, delays can result, caused by manual searches for that item and its order paperwork. Find out how, following a six-month pilot that yielded 100 percent tag read rates, the firm is tracking engine components by means of fixed reader portals, desktop interrogators at workstations, and EPC Gen 2 passive RFID tags affixed to equipment paperwork.
