Accuracy, efficiency and accountability in an airline’s logistics, maintenance and engineering departments are critical to success in the highly competitive air travel market. Virgin Atlantic’s central logistics operations, based at London’s Heathrow Airport, play a critical role in the company’s success by ensuring that regular maintenance checks take place, and that any aircraft defects are promptly repaired. Feeling the pinch of increasing operational costs and competitiveness within the airline industry, Virgin Atlantic chose to implement an RFID spare parts tracking system at its Heathrow facility.
To increase efficiency and reduce risk within its spare parts supply chain, Virgin Atlantic partnered with Tata Consulting Services (TCS), a firm with expertise in system integration and RFID, to evaluate various RFID hardware and software solutions. The Printronix printer was selected with PXML (Printronix extensible Markup Language) connectivity. Developed using open XML standards, PXML delivers a single software solution that monitors, manages and controls a single printer or a group of different printers, and their print jobs.
With the new RFID tagging system, Virgin Atlantic was able to cut the time needed to locate inbound spare parts in half, and give the company a more competitive edge by accurately tagging spare parts. Also, Virgin became compliant with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) guidelines concerning the traceability and authenticity of aircraft components.
