Even a small tool left on the launch pad at NASA's Kennedy Space Center could potentially damage a spacecraft during liftoff, thereby jeopardizing a mission. To prevent assets from being left behind by workers, Boeing has employed a real-time location system. Hear how the system reduces the time spent inventorying tools, by enabling staff members to search for a specific tool, or to perform an inventory of all tagged items at the facility, quickly and cost-effectively, thus reducing labor costs and increasing flight safety.
