Airbus has incorporated innovative digital tracking and monitoring RFID (radio-frequency identification) technology to help streamline and increase the efficiency of its industrial operations. By using RFID tags – attached to objects such as aircraft components and tools, and which are read automatically from distances of up to approximately 100 metres – Airbus can track and visualise its production processes in real-time. These capabilities have been deployed on the A330 and A350 final assembly lines in Toulouse, France, as well as for A400M wing assembly operations in the UK.
