Airbus Enhances Business Process with RFID
Airbus is beginning implementation of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology based on the conclusive results of its industrial pilot program. The company's RFID leader will explain how the use of RFID is part of an integrated company wide approach to help streamline business processes and reduce the cost of operations for all partners in the value chain. He will also describe the first pilot results, current deployment plans and how Airbus is considering using RFID across two main categories: non flyable and flyable. (Non Flyable refers to ground based processes including supply chain, transportation, logistics, manufacturing and assembly related applications; Flyable refers  to all in-service processes and includes operational, maintenance and payload tracking applications.)
