The role of maintenance, repair, and overhaul (mro) knowledge in facilitating service led design: a nozzle guide vane case study 9th wceam research papers, pages 379-395 pamela j zelbst, kenneth w green, (2014) rfid value in aircraft parts supply chains: a case study. Biography dr lam sze-sing, associate professor in businss intelligence and innovation strand at the lee shau kee school of business and administration, has a ba in quantitative analysis for business from the city university of hong kong, and an mphil and a phd in system engineering and engineering management from the chinese university of hong kong. The case is designed to achieve the following teaching objectives: (1) to study the supply chain processes of airbus (2) to understand the implementation of rfid technology in an aircraft manufacturing company (3) to analyze how rfid technology can improve the operational efficiency of an aircraft manufacturing company and (4) to examine the. Thanks to its use of rfid and bar-code technology, the company can now move away from a paper-based view of the supply chain to a digital view airbus has established what it calls the value chain visibility and auto id program for nonflyable and flyable parts. Digitally attached to aircraft components case study airbus sas a digitalized value chain” rfid tags for aircraft parts must be robust they need to be resilient to the technology is expected to reduce supply chain inventory costs alone by more than 20 percent but the intangible benefits have been just as.
Business benefits from radio frequency identification (rfid) today the largest government and business enterprises in the world are developing plans to deploy electronic product code (epc™ )-rfid based solutions across their global supply chains and operations. Rfid value in aircraft parts supply chains: a case study international journal of production economics 147 (2014), 330–339 international journal of production economics 147 (2014), 330–339 o o’connor, mc, 2005. The global commercial aircraft market for aftermarket parts and logistics reached nearly $23 billion in 2013 and continues to climb the constant demand for aftermarket parts to keep planes flying, and the desire to reduce or maintain costs, creates additional pressure to enhance the efficiency of supply chains for parts. Rfid-based tracking and tracing of aircraft parts in both the production and maintenance phases of the lifecycle brings significant value to all stakeholders within the aviation ecosystem, including airlines, the supply chain and airframe manufacturers.
We expect benefits from rfid to increase as we move downstream in the supply chain (figure 1) to study the benefits in detail, we use the supply chain council’s inventory and uses rfid to locate critical aircraft parts quickly and manage inventory overall, case-level rfid can add significant value over existing systems in receiving. Before the rfid system's deployment, boeing explains, 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. The value of radio frequency identification (rfid) in the maintenance of supply chains of aircraft parts is examined, particularly in the proposed analytical model this model helps us gain a better understanding of the relationships between various costs incurred and the rfid effect on an aircraft maintenance tracking process. One of the main issues in modern supply chain management is the recovery of value from the end of life (eol) or defective products by re-manufacturing, reassembly, re-use and recycling despite the fact that reverse logistics would impose extra amount of complexity to the supply chain, it has captured a lot of attention as it is possible to recycle the materials where there are limited resources.
Use of rfid-tagged products improves efficiency of its internal supply chain in asia with ibm as solutions partner royal philips electronics announced that its semiconductor division has deployed. Boeing's plan to rfid-enable its supply chain is similar to moves being made by companies such as wal-mart stores inc and airbus sas, boeing's european aircraft rival. Read rfid value in aircraft parts supply chains: a case study, international journal of production economics on deepdyve, the largest online rental service for scholarly research with thousands of academic publications available at your fingertips. Our long list of satisfied rfid customers for various types of rfid projects across india proves our credentials and rfid expertise: delphi nfc readers and tags delphi is the world’s largest manufacturer of automotive components and aftermarket parts. Home case studies rfid case studies automotive supply chain moves better with rfid packaging automotive supply chain moves better with rfid packaging universal rfid tags track $27 million packaging in closed loops opportunity: track automobile parts packaging for added value.
Hi-flying efficiency with tego’s rfid tags for aerospace today, many organizations along the supply chain generate information about parts and important data ends up in many different places, leading to inefficient maintenance processes case study tego aip for hospitals case study. Abstract this paper presents a systematic literature review of papers that were published in academic journals on the applications of radio frequency identification (rfid) in supply chain management between the years 2000 and 2015. In terms of how logistics and supply chain companies can utilise rfid technology, evans states that knowing “with 100% reliability” where an item is and when it got there in real-time, is incredibly valuable information in any supply chain. How rfid provides dependable management and traceability of aircraft parts fujitsu has expanded and enhanced its automated identification technology (ait) solution for aircraft parts suppliers worldwide, enabling the management of individual parts and the accurate traceability of rfid and other ait tags that are affixed to aircraft parts.
The aircraft manufacturer is asking suppliers to tag all traceable items, and is increasing the rfid expertise of its staff to support the technology's deployment across the supply chain. European aircraft manufacturer airbus received the best rfid implementation award in may 2008 the award was given for the successful implementation of rfid technology in its operations with an objective to improve the company's operational efficiency airbus, a leading aircraft manufacturer in the world, had a complex supply chain including multiple assembly plants and thousands of suppliers. When an aircraft parts supplier prepares to ship a kit back to daher's maintenance site, the kit passes an rfid reader if the software detects that the kit is missing some of its containers, it can issue an alert indicating which containers are absent. The cost reduction value case is a target area of many consumer packaged goods (cpg) companies, aircraft parts) represent a safety and security hazard for customers across the globe there rfid-enabled supply chain figure 2 with rfid applications used across the supply chain.
