How RFID Provides Dependable Management and Traceability of Aircraft Parts

  • TAGS

Fujitsu has expanded and enhanced its automated identification technology (AIT) solution for aircraft parts suppliers worldwide, enabling the management of individual parts and the accurate traceability of RFID and other AIT tags that are affixed to aircraft parts. By attaching tags to parts during the manufacturing process, aircraft parts suppliers can capture data about those components, such as their manufacture date, configuration, maintenance service records, and compliance with the aviation industry's rigorous environmental resistance standards, as well as with ATA Spec 2000 Chapter 9-5. This makes it possible to accurately trace a part's lifecycle from manufacture to maintenance. Learn how the solution delivers enhanced management of individual parts and accurate traceability throughout each item's lifecycle, as well as a faster delivery cycle and reduced stock shortages, thanks to greater visibility of the parts supply chain. The technology can also help maximize cash flow by reducing inventory, minimizing process time and solving availability issues by reducing work-in-process time.
