TAP Portugal is the country's leading airline, and its TAP Maintenance and Engineering (TAP M&E) division has incorporated RFID technology into its daily engine-maintenance operations, developed in partnership with MEGASIS (a TAP group company), as well as Airbus, Accenture and OATSystems. This is the first time that a maintenance and repair organization (MRO) has integrated RFID technology into its production process in order to track aircraft engine components undergoing maintenance. Learn how the solution, known as Mobile Enabled Engine Repair Application (MEERA), has resulted in increased efficiencies in labor-intensive operations within a complex series of processes requiring hundreds of engine components to be removed, cleaned, repaired and reassembled. MEERA provides TAP M&E with full real-time visibility into its component-tracking process, from the disassembly cycle to engine reassembly, generating operational efficiencies and providing full and more secure tracking.
