Boeing, Alaska Airlines to test RFID and CMB technology in component management
Boeing and Alaska Airlines are working together to develop a "Component Management Optimization Program" under which the airline has agreed to use its fleet and Seattle-based MRO organization to "develop, test and validate" RFID and "Contact Memory Button" technology that can be used to track parts information such as serial numbers, manufacturing date and maintenance history. Boeing, in partnership with Fujitsu, will provide automated identification technology devices, device readers, software applications and system integration service.
