Airbus Enters New Phase of RFID Usage, Digitalization
RFID transponders. Traceable items are those that are serialized, repairable, replaceable, maintainable or life-limited. Suppliers can choose to put an RFID integrated nameplate on an item in order to replace a conventional non-RFID nameplate, or they can opt to add a separate RFID tag elsewhere. At the same time, Airbus is strengthening the RFID training of its own supply chain engineers based across the United States, Asia and Europe, in order to support the supply chain adoption of radio frequency identification.
