Traceability and visibility are valuable for many processes, but they are necessities in the aerospace industry. If a part’s identity and history can’t be verified it can’t go up in the air, so there is a real possibility that a multimillion dollar aircraft can be grounded because of insufficient records for a $10 part. Aircraft operators can’t afford ignorance about flyable part identities, and they also can’t afford delays while parts are investigated and records are consulted. The industry simply doesn’t have the profit margins to allow expensive assets and specialized employees to sit idle because of preventable delays.
These safety and business realities are why Xerafy and RFID technology have found a home in the aerospace industry – not just for airlines, but for any organization that is responsible for maintaining and building or providing parts. As Carlo Nizam, who leads RFID efforts at Airbus said in a recent RFID Journal article: “We believe very strongly the RFID part-mark capability can improve how we trace things, not just for us but the whole value chain.” Continue reading

For East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS), saving time means saving lives. Seconds count when the service, which operates 450 vehicles in four U.K. counties, is providing emergency medical transport for patients. RFID is helping EMAS save time in preparing for emergencies to ensure ambulance crews always have the life-saving equipment they need.
Ambulances are packed with ventilators, monitors, resuscitators and other equipment that needs to be regularly disinfected, inspected, serviced and returned so each ambulance has a complete set of tools. EMAS previously had a manual item tracking process, which created the possibility that items could be missed during the inventory and restocking process. Continue reading
