Secheret, C., "Leading Edge RFID Technologies to Address Safety, FOD and Tooling Management," SAE Technical Paper 2013-01-2279, 2013, doi:10.4271/2013-01-2279.
Taking advantage of its understanding of the needs, stakes and requirements of the strong safety and security expectation of Nuclear Plants in France, Nexess and Desoutter Industrial tools start to offer leading edge RFID solutions answering people flow management and integrated tooling traceability. These solutions aim to enhance security and safety whilst offering productivity improvements, by covering namely tooling management with specialized furniture, storage and warehouse flow management supported by software integrated equipment. Additional solutions exist as well for the search of FOD when brought for assembly or repair in critical areas of the aircraft. With the raising of Battery wireless tools and the raising concerns of FOD the demand for proven technologies in the aerospace is growing.The aim of this paper is to address leading edge technologies to answer safety, FOD and tooling management concerns on the aerospace assembly lines and on MRO's activities.
