May 08, 2013Airbus has pioneered the use of passive and active RFID systems across its value chain to transform business operations. Now, the Airbus team is helping other companies in the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Co. (EADS) group replicate this success, including Eurocopter (the world's primary civil helicopter manufacturer), Astrium (a global leader in space programs) and Cassidian (a worldwide leader in state-of-the-art solutions for military and civil security). The panelists will discuss some of the new RFID processes being rolled out, how they are adding real business value, and the motivations and benefits of sharing synergies across the EADS group.
