Essentially, the application dismantles silos between the individual warehouse management systems, the MRO systems, and the client's internal system. Items are equipped with RFID tags, which are automatically registered in the system. If a truck is delivering an item, all pallets and items are completely traceable. If a pallet is moved onto a truck, a fixed RFID detects its entry and relays that information to the system. As the truck is driving to the intended location, the RFID sensors continuously transmit GPS coordinates.
Supply chain visibility and work-progress monitoring are just two sides of the client's multidimensional IoT application. They also open the door for inventory tracking. All aircraft parts are tagged and barcoded, so when an aircraft requires a certain part, the IoT application user automatically knows which part needs to be replaced for that specific model, whether they have the part in stock, and where the corresponding part is located within the warehouse.
The system is intuitive to aircraft health through a network of aircraft sensors that make predictive maintenance possible. Tires and brakes are equipped with sensors that collect data on the state of the tire, indicating when replacement is needs and recording how many retreads have occurred. When the unserviceable, an MRO shipping location is added to the tag and the RFID sensor is retagged. The same goes for the aircraft engine and brakes.
The IoT application we engineered has washed a wave of total interconnectivity over a previously decentralized network of management tools. The client continues to evolve their IoT web, as more tags are created and the application becomes more intuitive to the data streams. Moving forward, we will continue to support the client as a full-service development partner, helping them maintain their position as a global leader within the aviation climate.
