Senior Manager, Automated Identification

Boeing

Boeing Deploys RFID In-House for Assembly Management

Global aerospace company Boeing has deployed a radio frequency identification system for internal manufacturing purposes at four facilities since 2016, using recently released RFID labels. Boeing's deployment of the RFID-integrated label is consistent with the aircraft company's use of passive UHF RFID technology for its own purposes, as well as those of airlines. Before the RFID system's deployment, the management of parts during assembly was a matter of performing visual checks and manually entering data in order to confirm where specific parts were located and in which assembly they were used. Learn how the use of RFID has enabled the firm to save labor time and prevent the incidence of errors.

John Yu is the head of automated identification for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. He is responsible for the strategy and implementation of AIT across Boeing's operations. Leveraging technology, his team is tasked with bringing improved safety, quality and efficiency to Boeing Commercial Airplanes through the automated acquisition and transfer of data.

Phil Savage

Executive Director

The Reese's Senior Bowl

RFID Brings New Level of Data to Understanding Performance

This year, the Reese's Senior Bowl, an annual all-star football game for graduating college athletes, used radio frequency identification technology during practices and the game to understand player participation, exertion and movement, as well as how practices and team strategies might be improved. Active ultra-wideband (UWB) tags and readers fed data to software that calculated details such as how fast each player was running, how close other players were to that individual, and the velocity and rotation of a thrown ball, as well as how high, fast and far it traveled. The system used is an example of how RFID can provide big data that can optimize performance and is directly relevant to the optimization of business processes.

Phil Savage joined the Senior Bowl as its Executive Director in May of 2012 after working in the NFL as a coach, scout and executive for 20 years. As the Director of College Scouting and later as the Director of Player Personnel with the Baltimore Ravens, Savage helped assemble a roster that included 12 Pro Bowlers - and won Super Bowl XXXV. In his four years as General Manager of the Cleveland Browns he drafted or acquired five Pro Bowlers, including OT Joe Thomas and KR Josh Cribbs. He is a graduate of the University of the South - Sewanee and earned his Masters at the University of Alabama.
