Whether your company creates items for defense projects or the aviation industry, the responsibility for quality in your supply chain has serious, potentially life-threatening implications. Increasingly, counterfeit parts have made their way into the aerospace and defense supply chain, and these parts can lack the integrity, safety and security of known components.
Aerospace and defense companies have to adopt practices that automate manufacturing, warehouse and distribution operations in order to mitigate risk and assure the quality and safety of their products. RFgen Mobile Solutions for the Aerospace and Defense Industry provides real-time, accurate visibility to your inventory of materials and assets and enhances operational efficiency in the warehouse and on the manufacturing floor.
