RFID in Aerospace and Defense 2017SessionsBoeing Deploys RFID In-House for Assembly Management

Boeing Deploys RFID In-House for Assembly Management

Breakout Session
Global aerospace company Boeing has deployed a radio frequency identification system for internal manufacturing purposes at four facilities since 2016, using recently released RFID labels. Boeing's deployment of the RFID-integrated label is consistent with the aircraft company's use of passive UHF RFID technology for its own purposes, as well as those of airlines. Before the RFID system's deployment, the management of parts during assembly was a matter of performing visual checks and manually entering data in order to confirm where specific parts were located and in which assembly they were used. Learn how the use of RFID has enabled the firm to save labor time and prevent the incidence of errors.
