Honeywell Selects TegoView(TM) to Deploy Its High Memory RFID Parts Tagging Program

Tego's Software Simplifies Tagging and Streamlines Supply Chain Processes While Assuring ATA Spec 2000 Compliance

WALTHAM, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/01/13 -- Honeywell Aerospace, one of the largest parts suppliers to Airbus and Boeing, has selected TegoView software to improve its supply chain processes and expedite its new RFID parts tagging program.

Honeywell, working with systems integrator ID Integration, is rolling out its RFID tagging program across their aerospace organization. By using TegoView's workflow, Honeywell is streamlining its parts tagging process and assuring data accuracy on RFID tags being attached to components through efficient database connectivity and defined templates that reduce user input errors.

Airframe manufacturers are requiring their suppliers of repairable, high value parts and systems to attach high memory RFID tags to these assets. This allows all participants in the supply chain to trace the progress of assets and access information stored on them throughout their lifecycle from manufacturing to maintenance.

Tego, developer of high memory RFID chips, tags and software for creating smart assets, designed TegoView specifically to make tagging aircraft parts fast, easy and accurate. Pre-formatted templates guide workers through the process delivering 100% compliance with ATA Spec 2000, Chapter 9-5 and TDS 1.6 standards for tagging aircraft parts and systems.

"Aircraft components need to be easily traceable with full transparency throughout a product's supply chain and lifecycle with the ability to verify their pedigree at all times," said Jim Evans, ISC UID/RFID Program Manager, Honeywell Aerospace. "After evaluating and testing TegoView's ability to write and read RFID tags on parts, we are convinced we can meet the stringent requirements of our customers."

"TegoView is being deployed across many Honeywell locations where we are setting up workstations that we can configure for desktop and mobile use," continued Evans. "One of our teams quickly learned the tagging process using defined templates and then walked the next group through the process. Pre-populated mobile and fixed readers with the same TegoView interface make tagging parts an extremely efficient operation."

"In an industry where thousands of airplanes each have millions of individual parts, airframe manufacturers and their suppliers need to manage and track an enormous inventory," said Timothy Butler, president and CEO of Tego, Inc. "This is where the automation and accuracy of TegoView for writing and reading RFID tags on parts is of the greatest value to our customers, not only for compliance but for improved supply chain processes."

"Some parts suppliers are learning the hard way that not all software is compliant," continued Butler. "Errors are appearing, rendering parts non-compliant and endangering delivery of high value components."

ID Integration president, Gary Moe, said, "We certainly enjoyed working with Honeywell and Tego to make this Spec 2000 RFID solution set a reality. Having worked with Honeywell for many years as their IUID systems integrator, we were able to leverage our knowledge of Honeywell's operations and demanding standards to guide Tego through the rigorous testing and acceptance procedures. The end result is a Win-Win for all parties concerned."

Tego is an active member of the ATA standards committee and the primary architect of the Spec 2000 data container format. With workflow templates and built-in feedback, TegoView guarantees standards compliance and automates supply chain processes. In addition, airlines and MRO organizations can use TegoView to access accurate, current part information throughout its lifecycle from birth record to maintenance history.
