Keynote: RFID’s Role in the Aerospace Value Chain, Part 1

Published: April 25, 2015

Airbus began using RFID on an industrial scale in 2007 to improve visibility of its activities, streamline its operations and digitalize its processes. Applications that proved their value were expanded across Airbus Helicopters, Airbus Defense & Space, and other units in the Airbus Group. Additionally, the firm has been working with supply chain partners, airline customers and MRO service providers to extend the benefits the technology delivers to the entire value chain. Hear from Airbus and its partners about how the benefits of RFID multiply as partners share information and use the technology’s capabilities across the full lifecycle to track, trace and optimize how parts are made, put on a plane, maintained and finally replaced.
