The aerospace industry is a critical component of the successful economies in the U.S. and Canada. It not only provides stable employment, but it also fosters innovation and productivity among the workforce. Some of the world’s greatest technological feats have occurred in aircraft manufacturing. It is for this reason GAO RFID is proud to offer RFID systems that advance this dynamic industry.
Using GAO RFID Systems in the Aerospace, Engine, Turbine & Transmission Equipment Manufacturing Industry
Our clients have asked us how GAO can help streamline their operations. Whether you’re manufacturing propulsion units or designing guided missiles, our team can meet your needs with our powerful RFID solutions. Read on to see how we’ve addressed the specific needs of our aerospace customers.
Question: We’d like to integrate RFID into our business, but our manufacturing operation is a complex one. Do you have a comprehensive system that would address multiple issues, like workflow and document management?
GAO RFID’s Work In Progress (WIP) Tracking System is a powerful addition to any manufacturing operation—no matter how complex it may be. This system is designed to tackle a host of problems, allowing your managers to pay attention to the important things. Specifically designed for the manufacturing industry, our WIP system employs RFID Tags that are assigned to each part on the assembly line and does the following:
- Logs data as goods pass through each production stage
- Alerts management to workflow anomalies and productivity glitches
- Manages a series of important information such as product info, employee details and resource usage 24/7
- Allows companies to reduce paperwork by compiling above data into digital reports
GAO’s WIP Tracking System can be used on its own or in conjunction with our other solutions. Our RFID WIP Tracking System is fully customizable to meet your unique business needs.
Question: Our aerospace firm employs hundreds of workers within the manufacturing plant alone. What’s the best way to keep track of our human capital?
Our Personnel Locating System uses RFID technology to monitor your employees’ whereabouts and keep them safe. We utilize innovative RFID Tag and Reader configurations that not only track your workers—but also log their productivity rates. Each of your employees are assigned an RFID Badge that contains their unique information. RFID Readers are then placed at strategic points within the workplace. These RFID Readers will then transmit data as employees pass by wearing their RFID Badges. Our RFID Personnel Locating System can help you do the following:
- Know where your employees are at all times
- Improve visibility in remote areas, increasing overall workplace safety
- Provide special employee access to sensitive zones while maintaining control of who gets in and who stays out
- Log how much time each employee spends at particular work stations, allowing you to reallocate your human capital accordingly
Question: Our company is a leader in aerospace innovation, which means there is a lot of sensitive data at our offices. Can we use GAO RFID’s Systems to eliminate possible trespassing?
Absolutely. Our Access Control System is the industry’s preferred choice for controlling access within the business environment. Avoid theft, trespassing and vandalism by using RFID Access Control technology. Access into your facility is only granted to those who carry an authentic RFID Badge that has the access rights for that zone. This system comes with our powerful managing software, allowing you to monitor all areas of your building 24/7. This software logs all entry/exit activity and alerts security of possible breaches. Our Access Control System also allows you to monitor the facility from a remote location at all hours of the day, and can be configured to send you alerts if there are any unusual access attempts.
