(NYSE: CKP) and RFID Solution provider, announced that the companies will host a free webinar, "Understanding RFID Myths & Opportunities in Aerospace," at 11:00 a.m. EST on February 5, 2013.
In addition to debunking the top five myths about RFID technology in the aerospace industry, RFID solution leaders from OATSystems and Xerafy will provide an overview of aerospace RFID programs and standards, and describe real-world case study examples of how the technology is being used by manufacturers, suppliers and airlines.
"There are number of misperceptions about RFID, and confusion in the marketplace about what parts should be tagged, what types of tags to deploy, and how the technology can be used to address business needs beyond program compliance," said Xerafy Director of Sales, Evelyn Ong. "With this webinar, we will not only address issues that could delay or sidetrack RFID deployments, but also provide examples of how the technology is being used to generate a quantifiable return on investment for aerospace companies throughout the supply chain."
"As solution provider for the Airbus A350XWB Part Marking Program, we have worked with manufacturers to deploy RFID projects which benefit OEMs and suppliers," said Chris Forgione, Director of Asset Tracking Solutions at OATSystems. "We will be sharing case studies which illustrate the ROI of RFID throughout the A&D component lifecycle."
The webinar will include details about the new Airbus flyable parts tracking requirement, ATA Spec2000, SAE AS5678 and the Airbus, Boeing and Department of Defense UID programs. In addition, attendees will learn which applications require low-memory or high-memory tags, how to select the right tag for a given deployment, and how RFID technology can provide a return on investment (ROI) in lifecycle tracking, materials management, work-in-process tracking, and other applications. Program and technology experts will also be available to answer questions during the event.
