      HAECO Hong Kong Receives Best RFID Implementation Award for its RFID Tool Management System

      Patrick Wong, Executive General Manager, Line Services of HAECO Hong Kong received the RFID award from Mark Roberti, Founder and Editor of RFID Journal.

      The HAECO Hong Kong RFID Tool Management System project team.

      HAECO Hong Kong, a member of the HAECO Group, announced today that it was awarded runner-up for Best RFID Implementation (Other Industry) at the RFID Journal Awards 2018 for its RFID tool management system. The award presentation ceremony was held at the Orange County Convention Centre in Orlando, Florida.

      In 2017, HAECO Hong Kong introduced an RFID tool management system for its Airframe Services operations with the aim of further enhancing safety. The system has three main elements, including handheld RFID readers, tool tags and a HAECO tool management app, which aircraft maintenance mechanics can use on their mobile phones. The system helps ensure no tools are left inside an aircraft and assists in locating missing tools when needed.

      Traditionally, mechanics would need to account for their tools at the end of each shift using a paper inventory of their toolboxes. The inventory would then be checked by a supervisor, and the whole process would take 10 to 15 minutes.

      The RFID tool management system tags each tool, so mechanics can simply capture all tags in their toolboxes with their mobile phones. The app alerts them of any missing tools or extra tools detected. The whole inventory process now takes only 2 to 3 minutes.

      Introducing this system has helped enhance both operational efficiency and safety. Having tested the system in Q4 2017, HAECO Hong Kong plans to implement it throughout its operations in phases.
